Major review of the Strategic Community Plan 2018 - 2028

The City’s Strategic Community Plan is our highest level planning document, outlining the vision and priorities for the next ten years and it is now time to undertake a major review. Closing date: 8 November 2021 Follow project

The City’s Strategic Community Plan is our highest level planning document that outlines our vision and priorities for the next ten years. At the City of Stirling we’ve worked hard to achieve this vision for our community and now it’s time to review this Plan. We want to hear from you to help shape our future for a Sustainable Stirling.

As per the Western Australian government’s Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) guidelines, the City is required to conduct major reviews of the Strategic Community Plan every four years to assess the shifting community priorities, values, expectations and needs.

The aim of this major review is to seek feedback from the community to understand the vision and priorities into the future. Feedback will be captured using the four pillars of sustainability in the Quadruple Bottom Line to ensure that we plan in a sustainable way. This approach will enable the City to understand community priorities in relation to the wider social, economic, environmental (both built & natural) and governance matters to enhance our focus in these areas. All feedback gained through this survey will be used to inform the update to the revised Strategic Community Plan.
