Shaping Our Future: refreshed vision for the City of NPSP

14/09/2017

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters has completed the scheduled review of its strategic plan CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future, and has adopted the update and Plan at its Special Meeting on Monday 11 September 2017.

"The  review update of CityPlan 2030 has re-affirmed the community’s long-held values such as the preservation of our unique built character and heritage, safe neighbourhoods, quality open spaces, support for local and family-owned businesses, and a strong ‘sense of place’, community pride and spirit,” said Mayor Robert Bria.

"The update also reflects aspirations for a more vibrant arts and culture scene, with more activation of public spaces aimed at increasing community participation and creating a stronger sense of inclusion.”

Mayor Bria said the Council's response to climate change has been given a higher priority
in CityPlan 2030, with measures to improve water security, use of renewable energy sources and the preservation of our natural environment. 

Aligned to this, is the community’s strong desire for better infrastructure and amenities to encourage sustainable and integrated transport options such as walking and cycling.

"Achieving the strategies which are contained inCityPlan 2030, will require transparent and accountable governance structures and processes which are both flexible and responsive to the future opportunities and indeed challenges that arise.

"It will also require a positive ‘can-do’ attitude and approach to ensure that we realise the future which we want for ourselves and the next generation, rather than just letting things happen," Mayor Bria said.

“I wish to thank all citizens who participated in the community engagement and consultation process. The comments and suggestions have been invaluable.”

The Council will conduct a major review of the Plan in 2020.
