The City of Whittlesea has endorsed three key strategies that are designed to set the blueprint for the municipality’s future. 

The Connected Community Strategy 2023-2033, Liveable Neighbourhoods Strategy 2023-2033 and the Long-Term Community Infrastructure Plan were endorsed at the December council meeting. 

Each document identifies priorities to enable liveable neighbourhoods and connected communities, such as providing community infrastructure, programs and services, and the planning design of places for people.

Community feedback gathered over several stages of consultation made its way into the final strategies, including capturing community priorities from last year and presenting the opportunity for residents to have their say on the draft documents. 

Consultation also meant establishing a community focus group for more in-depth discussion and inviting key community stakeholder groups to provide feedback.

City of Whittlesea chair administrator Lydia Wilson thanked residents who made time for the consultation, especially the focus group participants who gathered for three sessions.

“It is vitally important that these strategic documents, which will guide council’s efforts over the next 10 years, are shaped by our community and reflect what’s most important to them,” she said.

“We were delighted with the level of interest from people sharing their priorities and providing feedback.”

Ms Wilson said the three strategies would accompany the Sustainable Environment, Strong Local Economy and High Performing Organisation strategies to complete a suite of documents created for each of the Whittlesea 2040 goals, designed to lead the municipality towards reaching the Whittlesea 2040 Vision of A Place for All.

“These strategies are the guides to take us into the next 10 years where we anticipate significant growth and change in our municipality,” she said.

“They will ensure we stay on the path towards what our community has told us is most important to them in the place where they live, work or play.”
