Strategic Community Plan

A girl looking off into the distance as she contemplates.

Thank you

Thank you to everybody who has shared their thoughts on the Strategic Community Plan (SCP) over the past few months. Your feedback is currently being analysed, and the draft SCP is being written.  Shortly a draft will be submitted to Council, and we will ask members of our community for their feedback on this document. 



Strategic Community Plan 2023

Get involved with the development of the City of Rockingham's Strategic Community Plan.

What is a Strategic Community Plan?

The SCP is the product of a long and broad engagement with people from all walks of life from all sections of our community.  The Strategic Community Plan establishes the community's vision for the local government's future, including aspirations and service expectations which drives the development of our other plans, resourcing and strategies.  Our Strategic Community Plan will ultimately be a driving force for our other planning.

Why are you undertaking this review?

The Local Government Act 1995 requires local governments to conduct a full review of their Strategic Community Plan every four years.

The City's current Strategic Community Plan was endorsed by Council in 2018. A lot has happened since then driven by our last SCP, including:

  • Rockingham Beach Foreshore revitalisation
  • Baldivis District Sporting Complex
  • Rediscover Rockingham campaign
  • Youth Centre
