Picture Your Future City of South Perth

Media Release 15 February 2021

How do you picture your future City of South Perth?

We're reviewing our Strategic Community Plan (SCP), the document that guides the City over a 10 year period, and we would like to hear from you.

From 15 February to 15 March, we will be running a range of stakeholder and community engagement activities so we can hear from as many members of our community as possible. 

The Strategic Community Plan is the City’s overarching plan to guide us over the next decade. It outlines our community’s aspirations, priorities and vision for the future of the City.

All the programs and services that the City provides are linked to our SCP to ensure that we are delivering what the community wants.

The current Strategic Community Plan is the result of community and stakeholder feedback from the Vision 2027 process which took place in 2017. From this, we developed a comprehensive plan to deliver on the vision of ‘A city of active places and beautiful spaces. A connected community with easily accessible, vibrant neighbourhoods and a unique, sustainable natural environment’.

We’ve worked hard to meet the community aspirations outlined in the last Plan and we’d like to know what else you would like to see us do. 

We’re asking you to look back, to reflect on what we’ve achieved, and to tell us what you see as priorities for the City for the next 10 years.

City of South Perth Mayor Greg Milner encouraged all members of the local community to be involved in shaping the future of the City.

“It has been four years since the City of South Perth’s Strategic Community Plan was developed and now we’re conducting a major review to ensure that the aspirations and priorities set out in the Plan are still relevant. We want to check-in and make sure we’re heading in the right direction,” Mayor Milner said.

“Developing our City’s Strategic Community Plan is one of the most important jobs that your Council and the City's administration has. It’s a 10-year, high-level plan setting out the vision and priorities for our community. And to make sure that the Strategic Community Plan properly reflects what our community wants, we want to hear from you.”

“This major review of the Strategic Community Plan will assist Council to understand what matters most to our community, to prioritise resources and guide the way we plan for the future and deliver essential services.”
