Our vision

3 months ago

The community first engaged with developing a vision and strategic direction in 2011. For the Strategic Community Plan, that vision was tested through the precinct workshops and later refined to focus on what the community felt was most important for the future of the City of Nedlands.

This vision is as follows:

“Our overall vision is of a diverse community where people can live through the different ages and stages of their lives.

We will have easy access to community ‘hubs’ where a mix of parks, shops, community and sporting facilities will bring people together, strengthening local relationships.

Our gardens, streets, parks and bushlands will be clean, green and tree-lined and we will live sustainably within the natural environment.

We will enjoy great transport systems and people will have access to local facilities through efficient cycling and walking facilities.

We will be an active, safe, inclusive community enjoying a high standard of local services and facilities.

We will live in a beautiful place.”


The Council considered the Community’s vision and responded by creating a vision that highlighted the elements it would focus on, including their governance and civic leadership roles. This vision guides the Strategic Community Plan. 

This vision is as follows:

"Our overall vision is of a harmonious community.

We will have easy access to quality health and educational facilities and lively local hubs consisting of parks, community and sporting facilities and shops where a mix of activities will bring people together, strengthening local relationships.

Our gardens, streets, parks will be well maintained, green and tree-lined and we will live sustainably within the natural environment.

We will work with neighbouring Councils and provide leadership to achieve an active, safe, inclusive community enjoying a high standard of local services and facilities.

We will live in a beautiful place.”


Looking to the future now from 2017, what is most important to you in the future for the City of Nedlands, and why?

This is a "motherhood" statement meaning nothing. Council has gone off at a tangent to community needs and vision

Integrated development – not mono-culture (Received at community drop-in session)
Kim Venn about 1 month ago
Yes. Mono culture is producing some large ugly ,however , this is a democracy so why not.My objection is this type of development excludes the integrated development we need for a mix of community needs and vision, especially for the aged and the young wishing to live here.
