CITY of Whittlesea residents are now able to give feedback on the council’s list of strategic indicators, which it developed to align with its Whittlesea 2040 community vision.

Whittlesea 2040 is a long-term vision that directs council’s work and future partnerships with the community.

The plan involves strategic indicators to record the council’s performance and progress in achieving its long-term plan and a recently adopted community plan 2021-2025.

Chair administrator Lydia Wilson said reforming the strategic indicators would match the needs of the community and the council. 

“We have added a number of new indicators based on the feedback we heard from our community when we consulted with them earlier this year to develop the community plan 2021-2025, including mental health, access to open space and carbon emissions,” she said.

“We have also made some changes to existing indicators to ensure they remain current and can adequately reflect the needs of our growing community.”

The list includes five new indicators, including customer satisfaction, community engagement and community satisfaction with council decision-making. 

“These indicators are a critical measure for council and enable us to strategically plan and prioritise our projects as we work towards achieving our shared vision,” Ms Wilson said.

Quarry Hills Regional Parkland will be home to a new Granite Hills Park, featuring play equipment for different ages and abilities, water play, giant slides, a 50-metre flying fox, barbecue and picnic facilities, and connected walking tracks, as part of a City of Whittlesea’s plan.
