Media Release 18 October 2016
Vision 2027

The City of South Perth is embarking on a major review of its 10 year Strategic Community Plan and is seeking community input. This is your chance to have your say about the City’s future, and contribute to shaping the City’s priorities for the next 10 years.

Local residents, ratepayers, businesses, families, youth, seniors, community and special interest groups, schools and universities, visitors and volunteers are all invited to participate in Vision 2027 by completing an online or hardcopy survey and sharing their vision for the City’s future.  

“This is a really important opportunity to have your say about the big picture for the City of South Perth and be part of shaping our future planning,” Mayor Sue Doherty said. “When you cast your mind forward and picture the City in 2027, what can you see? This is your chance to shape the City’s vision, aspirations and priorities for the next 10 years.”

From 7 November to 9 December 2016 members of the community can complete the Vision 2027 survey by visiting the City’s Your Say South Perth online engagement portal or by picking up a hardcopy of the survey from selected City venues. Information and responses collected will help to reshape the City’s vision and priorities with the final outcome of this significant review being the 2017-2027 Strategic Community Plan. The plan will have a strong emphasis on the community’s aspirations, priorities and vision for the City’s future.

“This process involves extensive community consultation and engagement to guide and inform the development of the City, its strategies, and projects over the next 10 years,” Mayor Sue Doherty said.

“I strongly encourage all members of our community to get involved and complete the survey in November. The Strategic Community Plan is created by the community, for the community and we need your involvement, it’s key to the success of the project.”

“The survey will be quick and easy to complete. There will be a variety of engagement opportunities to ensure that everyone can have their say and participate at a time, in a way and place that suits them whether it be online, via hardcopy surveys,  face-to-face workshops or through focus groups.”

Hardcopy surveys will be available to complete from City venues including; Civic Centre, Operations Centre, South Perth Library, Manning Library, Manning Men’s Shed, South Perth Senior Citizens Centre, Manning Senior Citizens Centre, George Burnett Leisure Centre and Old Mill.
