Thoughts on 10-year vision for Nedlands needed

The City of Nedlands is reviewing its Strategic Community Plan and calling for feedback to shape the next 10 years.

Nedlands 2027 is a continuation of the 2013-2023 Strategic Community Plan, originally adopted in late 2012 after extensive engagement with the community, businesses, community organisations, sporting clubs and visitors to the City.

The City’s existing internal and external plans, including information on demographic trends and available resources, will inform Nedlands 2027 to prioritise community aspirations and social, economic and environmental objectives.

City of Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins is calling on all residents, ratepayers and businesses to find out more about what the City has achieved through strategic planning and have a say in its future direction and priorities.

“We all know Nedlands is a great place but we’re committed to making it even better and want to draw on feedback from a variety of sources in putting Nedlands 2027 together,” he said. 

“Local government policies and decisions have a significant effect on our lives, whether it be our personal homes, local streets or the shaping of our community in general.

“An important aspect of this is ensuring locals are able to have a say with input into the decision-making process – which is why extensive consultation was undertaken when the 2013-2023 Strategic Community Plan was originally developed.

“This commitment to community consultation will highlight the needs of Nedlands into the future so our City will be in a strong position to further progress and capitalise on opportunities that will deliver positive outcomes.

“We need people to think about where we are now, where we want to be and then how we go about achieving those goals.”

Information sessions are being held at the Mt Claremont Community Centre on 2 September from 1pm to 5pm and Dalkeith Hall on 4 September from 1pm to 3.30pm and 6pm to 8.30pm – people can drop in any time to talk to council officers and consultants working on Nedlands 2027.
