The Draft Delivery Program 2017-2021 turns the strategic goals within the Hawkesbury Community Strategic Plan 2017–2036 into actions. It is Council's commitment to the Community Strategic Plan and details which issues within its area of responsibility that Council  will act upon during its four year term of office.

Additionally each year Council outlines its activities for the coming year through an Operational Plan.
