Strategic Community Plan

Our Strategic Community Plan(PDF, 2MB) sets out our vision, aspirations and objectives for the Swan community over the next 10 years. It is our principal strategy and planning document. This means that it governs all of the work that the City undertakes, either through direct service delivery, partnership arrangements or advocacy on behalf of our community. The clear direction set by the Council ensures asset and service provision is focussed on meeting the requirements of our community, now and into the future.

Our Strategic Community Plan is a legislative requirement to ensure that we appropriately plan for the future of the Swan region. When setting the direction for the City, we are conscious of the financial, asset and workforce constraints that we work within. This is to ensure that what we plan for can be achieved.

The strategic direction of the City is translated into services and projects that are delivered to our community through the Corporate Business Plan. This ensures that strategic priorities are translated into real actions. The Corporate Business Plan is reviewed each year and reported to our community through the Annual Report.

The Strategic Community Plan was originally developed in 2012 and underwent major reviews in 2016 and 2020 to ensure that it remains relevant and reflective of community requirements.
