Strategic Community Plan - Creating Nedlands 2027

What would take our City to the next level? We want to hear from you! Our last plan has been in place for four years and we have exceeded expectations. Not only have we made substantial progress on the community's key priorities (such as roads, footpaths and community facilities), but we have found ways to work smarter to keep rates increases lower than anticipated.

So our plan is making a difference! And it reflected what a lot of community members shared with us back then. Now it is time for us all to review progress and reset the priorities for the decade ahead. Make sure your voice is heard!

    Miss a drop-in sessions, don’t worry - you can still participate through this page. Read on for more details!

    Visitors firstly got the opportunity to see some of the key projects the City has been working on over the last four years – we really enjoyed hearing a number of people say they have noticed and been pleased with the improvements being made around the City. The document library contains a ‘Strategic Community Plan in Action’ map for each year since the Strategic Community Plan was implemented. These provide a snap-shot of the major projects and works the City has undertaken.

    Next, visitors moved onto looking at the Community and Council ‘Vision’ and were invited to think about their own vision for the City of Nedlands, then tell us what's most important to them for the City's future - and why. You can, too...visit the Vision page and let us know your thoughts..

    Visitors then looked at the City’s draft priorities and told us which priorities they believed were most important, as well as writing down any priorities they felt were missing. YIf you'd like to do the same, visit the Priorities page.

    Each person considered the neighbourhood where they lived and were invited to put markers on a map to highlight anything they wished to improve about their neighbourhood. Some people used this as an opportunity to say what they liked while others raised specific issues, or highlighted anything they felt would make their neighbourhood a bit better. You can also do this by using the My Neighbourhood tool.

    It was wonderful to hear the great conversations going on and we look forward to publishing a draft Nedlands 2027 Plan later in October for your feedback.

    • City-wide expenditure priorities (where greater focus was desired)
    • Local expenditure priorities

    • Three open days were held at the Dalkeith Hall, Hollywood Bowling Club and the Nedlands Library.

    • Individual feedback was invited (and received) from schools, businesses and major stakeholders
    • A community conference to discuss asset investment options and the financial implications and identify preferences for the future.

    The results of the community engagement activities are contained in the Document Library - Outcomes from the Precinct Workshop and Outcomes from the Community Conference.
