Community Plan Strategies

The City’s Strategic Community Plan (2023-2033) underwent a major review in 2023.  From late 2022 until early 2023 the City undertook extensive community engagement, where the community shared its vision and aspirations for our City’s future.

The City’s Community Plan Strategies (CPS) support delivery of the aspirations of the Strategic Community Plan while exploring in deeper detail the priorities and opportunities where the City can create positive change for our community.

Community Plan Strategies are developed and reviewed through further engagement with the community and Council, and are endorsed by Council.  Each strategy contains key actions to progress the City towards the vision, aspirations and objectives of the Strategic Community Plan. All actions are budgeted for and delivered through the City’s strategic development framework, including the City's Asset Management Plan, Team Plans and the Corporate Business Plan.
