Integrated Planning & Reporting

In 2010, the Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework was introduced in WA, this framework aims to ensure integration of community priorities into strategic planning for Councils, as well as implementation of the objectives that have been set from these priorities.

The diagram below shows how all of the elements of the framework fit together to deliver council priorities which are informed by the community vision and aspirations. The IPR provides a framework for establishing local priorities that are linked to operational functions.

Strategic Community Plan

The Strategic Community Plan 2020-2030 is the overarching plan to guide the City over the next 10 years. The Plan is broad with a long-term focus and strong emphasis on the community’s aspirations, priorities and vision for the future. 

It was formulated through the Vision 2027 process, which documented our community’s priorities, aspirations and vision for the City and helped us shape and create a shared vision for the City of South Perth.

In consideration of the feedback received from Vision 2027, the community’s priorities and aspirations have been grouped into four broad categories to form the new strategic directions:

  • Community: A diverse, connected, safe and engaged community
  • Economy: A thriving City activated by innovation, attractions and opportunities
  • Environment: (Built and Natural): Sustainable urban neighbourhoods
  • Leadership: A visionary and influential local government

The City monitors and reviews the progress of the Strategic Community Plan via the City’s Corporate Business Plan, Annual Report and Community and Stakeholder survey.  Every two years a part review of the Plan is conducted with a more comprehensive review every four years. The latest minor review was endorsed by Council in May 2020

Corporate Business Plan

The Corporate Business Plan is the City of South Perth’s four-year project and service delivery plan. It outlines in detail the projects, services, actions, operations and performance measurements required to deliver on the priorities identified in the Strategic Community Plan. It is reported on quarterly to Council, updated annually with a full review every four years.

Informing strategies

The City has also developed a number of informing strategies that document its financial, asset and workforce constraints, which will ensure that it can achieve and deliver the priorities identified in the Strategic Community Plan. Visit the Plans & Strategies page for more information.
