Planning for the community's needs

The City's Community Infrastructure Planning team plans for community, sport and recreation facilities to meet the current and future needs of the City's residents.  

Community Infrastructure Plan

The Community Infrastructure Plan outlines the process to answer the following questions:

  • What does the City's current and future population look like?
    • How many people, who they are, and where they live.
  • What community infrastructure do we currently have to serve these people?
    • Assessing the current facilities, analysing where they are located, who uses them, and what they are used for. By doing this, we can determine if we have the right facilities in the right places.
  • What kind of community infrastructure do we need in the future?
    • New infrastructure might be needed to serve growing areas and fill provision gaps.
    • Existing facilities might be in need of an upgrade or replacement to be able to meet future community needs.

The Community Infrastructure Plan includes a list of projects (the Implementation Plan) needed to make sure that current and future residents have access to community infrastructure. The need for these projects is determined by comparing the current facilities against population forecasts and industry standards.

The Community Infrastructure Plan 2018-2028 was endorsed by Council on 23 October 2018.

Sporting Infrastructure Assessments

Sporting Infrastructure Assessments identify how many sporting facilities we have, and how they are currently used. The current sporting infrastructure in the City is then compared to industry standards, to determine what sporting facilities are needed to serve the future population. 
The Sporting Infrastructure Assessments were conducted in three sub districts:

  • Coastal South (Golden Bay, Secret Harbour, Singleton)
  • Coastal Central (Port Kennedy, Warnbro, Waikiki)
  • Coastal North (Cooloongup, Garden Island, Hillman, Peron, Rockingham, East Rockingham, Safety Bay and Shoalwater).
