25/07/2017

Background

Norwood Tour down underCityPlan 2030 is the leading document in the Council’s Strategic Planning Framework, and guides the future planning, programming and delivery of projects and services for our City.

All Councils are required to prepare a Strategic Management Plan which complies with the requirements of Section 122 of the Local Government Act 1999

CityPlan 2030 was developed in 2007 through an extensive visioning program with the community and identifies the broad strategic directions which the Council is working towards to create the desired future for the community of the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters.

To achieve the Vision set out in CityPlan 2030, a series of Objectives, Strategies, Indicators and Targets have been prepared for each of the four Outcomes of Social Equity, Cultural Vitality, Economic Prosperity and Environmental Sustainability.

Beulah Bicycle cyclistsWe are reviewing CityPlan 2030 to check whether the Council is ‘on track’ and continuing to strive towards the aspirations and expectations of our community. CityPlan 2030 is reviewed every four years with the overarching objective of continuing to look ahead to the year 2030.

A series of workshops were held in late 2016 with over 190 people from across the community participating, including residents, business owners and school students. The comments from these workshops was collated and reviewed to help inform the preparation of the draft CityPlan 2030 – Update 2017 document.  

St Peters ChildcareTo inform the preparation of the draft CityPlan 2030 – Update 2017, the Council held a number of workshops:

  • one workshop and one Information Session with Elected Members
  • two Community Forums with randomly selected participants from across the City
  • two workshops with local school students
  • three workshops with Council staff.

The comments from these activities were then summarised and reviewed to gain an understanding of which aspects of the Plan need updating. In particular, the Objectives and Strategies were reviewed and updated, along with the associated Indicators and Targets.

The overall document was reviewed to ensure that it reflects changes to the broader planning context since the 2012 update, as well as the demographic snapshot of the City which was updated using new ABS Census data.
