Media Release 13 December 2016
Vision 2027

The City’s Vision 2027 survey has concluded, with 1197 people taking part and helping to shape the City’s priorities for the next 10 years. 

Part of a major review of the City’s 10 year Strategic Community Plan, the survey was open from 7 November to 9 December 2016 with the community invited to share their vision for the City’s future.

The comments and ideas collected will inform Stage Two of the Vision 2027 consultation process which includes community and stakeholder workshops to be held in February 2017.

“The feedback from our community has been incredible and I thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey and share their vision for the City’s future,” Mayor Sue Doherty said.

“We asked people what priorities they wanted the City to focus on over the next 10 years, what they liked most about living in or visiting the City, and what ideas they had to make the City a better place to live and visit. 

“A broad range of ideas were presented, we received considered and insightful responses from a really diverse cross section of the community. People commented on everything from public transport to parking and traffic, trees and public open spaces, and cycleways to name just a few.”

“Vision 2027 is an important major project for the City of South Perth as the information captured during the process will help us to better understand the community’s needs as we move forward as a City and look to the future. 

“The final result is going to be be a Strategic Community Plan that accurately reflects our community’s aspirations and has a strong emphasis on their priorities for the City.”
