Update: CityPlan 2030 review

10 August 2017

At the Council meeting held on 3 July 2017, the Council endorsed the draft CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future – Update 2017 for community consultation.

The draft document is currently being finalised and will be released for community consultation in August 2017.

2016-2017 Review of CityPlan 2030

The Council is currently updating CityPlan 2030 as part of the four-yearly review required under Section 122 of the Local Government Act 1999. As part of the review process, a program for community and stakeholder consultation has been developed to encourage the community to ‘have your say’ on the review of the Plan.

The initial stage of the consultation program included four workshops with sections of the community including: school students, community group representatives, and randomly selected business owners and local residents.

The format of the workshops encouraged participants to review the Objectives and Strategies of each of the CityPlan 2030 Outcomes (being Social Equity, Cultural Vitality, Economic Prosperity and Environmental Sustainability). The workshops were attended by more than 180 people, with an extensive amount of feedback provided by the community. Whilst some suggestions and comments are outside of the Council’s control, the feedback received has been used to prepare a draft revised CityPlan 2030 document wherever possible.

Examples of the common areas of feedback received at the workshops are listed below:

  • clarity around the wording and intent of the Objectives and Strategies of CityPlan 2030
  • encouraging the development of attractive and vibrant streetscapes
  • more communication from the Council about events, services and other opportunities
  • discussion on sports and recreation activities and facilities, such as community gardens
  • recognition and support for the diverse cultures of our residents
  • continuing to protect and promote heritage and history
  • highlighting support for businesses and encouraging diversity in the range of businesses in our Council
  • greater emphasis on environmental sustainability ad climate change adaptation.

Additionally, a Discussion Paper on emerging issues and trends for consideration in the review of the CityPlan 2030 document will also be available on the Council’s website during the consultation on the draft CityPlan 2030 – Update 2017.

CityPlan 2030 sets out the strategic direction of our City over the next 20 years and beyond.Cityplan update news thumb

CityPlan 2030 was prepared in 2007-2008, following an extensive community visioning exercise. Close to 10,000 comments were received from the community about what we should keep, change and create for our City by the year 2030.

The Vision, Outcomes and Objectives were developed based on the community’s aspirations and priorities and the final Plan was endorsed by the Council in July 2008.

CityPlan 2030 is based on the concept that, as a community, we can shape, model and influence our future by the actions we take today. It does not address all of the programs, services and work areas which the Council provides. Rather, it is focused on the priorities which have been identified by the Council and the community and translated into four Key Outcomes:

1.    Social Equity

2.    Cultural Vitality

3.    Economic Prosperity

4.    Environmental Sustainability

These four Outcomes form the Quadruple Bottom Line (QBL) approach to sustainability that has been adopted in CityPlan 2030, and are discussed further below. 

 

QBL Framework & Sustainability

QBL Diagram with textThe foundations of CityPlan 2030 are based on the City’s unique Quadruple Bottom Line (QBL) approach to sustainability and community well-being.

The four key Outcomes reflect the four ‘Pillars’ of social, cultural, economic and environmental sustainability, which help to build in sustainability principles across the organisation and align of all the Council’s operations with the priorities contained within CityPlan 2030.

The Objectives and Strategies contained within CityPlan 2030, set out the priorities for achieving the Outcomes. The Strategies outline, in broad terms, how this will be implemented. Indicators and Targets have been identified to ensure that progress towards achieving each of the Outcomes can be measured.
