Strategic Community Plan

Strategic Community Plan 2020-2030 (SCP) 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.

Developed in 2017, the SCP was formulated through the Vision 2027 process, which documented our community’s priorities, aspirations and vision and helped us shape and create a shared vision for the City.

The City monitors and reviews the progress of the SCP via the Corporate Business Plan (CBP) and Annual Report. Every two years a desktop (minor) review of the SCP is conducted with a more comprehensive (major) review every four years. The last minor review was endorsed by Council in May 2020.

The SCP 2020-2030 builds on the 2017-2027 and 2013-2023 SCP. In consideration of the feedback received from the community and stakeholders, the priorities and aspirations have been grouped into four broad categories to form the 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
