Community input sought on Strategic Community Plan

Cockburnians can have their say on the future of the City of Cockburn during a review of the City’s Strategic Community Plan.

The Strategic Community Plan last had a major review in 2016 and the community priorities identified through the consultation will guide how the City should plan until 2030.

The City’s population is expected to increase to nearly 150,000 by 2030. This will have major implications on how residents will move around the City; how the City should manage growth and how its residents will be kept safe; its economic, social and environmental responsibility; community and lifestyle; and how the City leads and listens to its people.

People can have their say about all of these issues.

To provide feedback, take part in the online survey before October 31 on Comment on Cockburn or attend one of three drop-in listening post sessions.
  • Wednesday, October 9, 9.30am-11.30am, Success Library (11 Wentworth Parade, Success)

  • Thursday, October 17, 4.30pm-6.30pm, Spearwood Library (9 Coleville Crescent, Spearwood)
City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the City’s focus areas and projects would be guided by the priorities detailed in the reviewed Plan which aims to make Cockburn the best place to be.

“In addition, more than 65,000 trees, shrubs and ground covers were planted in the last financial year, CCTV has been installed city-wide, we’re developing an Aboriginal Cultural and Visitors Centre, and there are more than 30 regional and major road works in progress or planned before 2031,” Mr Howlett said.
