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

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, and forms the foundations of the current version of CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future – Update 2017.

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 principles

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.

Everything we do as a Council is based on achieving community well-being through the four key Outcomes listed above.

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. The Indicators and Targets have been identified to ensure that progress towards achieving each of the Outcomes and specific strategies can be measured.
