Shaping our future: have your say

31/07/2017

Following a review of its strategic management plan, the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is now seeking comments on the proposed changes to CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future.

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters Mayor, Robert Bria, said that the 2017 update has taken into account the views, aspirations and ideas of more than 160 people who participated in the first stage of community consultation.

"The update re-affirms the City’s long held vision and aspirations for the future; such as an improved vibrant arts and culture scene, with more activation in public spaces aimed at increasing community participation and creating a stronger sense of place and inclusion.”

The City of Norwood, Payneham & Peters’ response to climate change has also been given a higher priority in the 2017 updated CityPlan 2030.

“Measures to improve water security, use of renewable energy sources and the preservation of our natural environment have been raised by our community and incorporated across our various services and programs.”

“Closely aligned to this is the reflection of the community’s strong desire for better infrastructure and amenities which encourage sustainable transport options such as walking and cycling.”
The draft CityPlan 2030 – Update 2017, will be released for community consultation on Wednesday 2 August, with feedback welcome until Thursday 31 August 2017, before being finalised and formally adopted by the Council.
