What is the Strategic Community Plan?

    The Strategic Community Plan outlines the long-term vision (usually 10+ years), values, aspirations and priorities for a local government. The Plan is the highest-level document that a local government will prepare and should make reference to the local government’s plans, information and resourcing capabilities. 

    The main objectives of the Strategic Community Plan are to:

    • Establish the community’s vision for the local government’s future, including aspirations and service expectations.
    • Drives the development of local government area/place/regional plans, resourcing and other informing strategies
    • Ultimately be a driver for all planning 

    What is in the City of Kalamunda’s Strategic Community Plan?

    The Kalamunda Advancing 2027 Strategic Community Plan outlines the transformational journey Kalamunda will make over the next 10 years. The Plan has a number of key priority areas. These key priority areas are:

    • Priority 1 – Kalamunda Cares and Interacts: looking after our people and providing our people with social and cultural enjoyment.
    • Priority 2 – Kalamunda Clean and Green: delivering environmental sustainability and maintaining the integrity of the natural environment.
    • Priority 3 – Kalamunda Develops: supporting our local economy and using our land and assets diversely and effectively.
    • Priority 4 – Kalamunda Leads: providing good government and leadership.

    The Kalamunda Achieving Corporate Business Plan 2019-2023 is the plan that demonstrates how the objectives and strategies in the Strategic Community Plan will be achieved. The Corporate Business Plan outlines the actions and measures that will take place over a short-term and long-term basis.

    What is the vision for the Strategic Community Plan?

    Following extensive community consultation undertaken in 2017, the community’s and City’s aspirational vision for 2017-2027 is:

    Connected Communities, Valuing Nature and Creating the Future Together

    Why is the Plan under review?

    The State Governments Integrated planning and reporting framework sets requirements for the development and review of strategic community plans. As part of the process, local governments are also required under the Local Government Act 1995 to undergo a minor review every two years and a full review every four years.

    How can I have my say?

    The Strategic Community Plan is an important plan that has an impact on everyone. The City would like to engage in multiple conversations with as many people in the community, so that we can identify the vision for what the future City could look like over the next four (4) years.

    The City is calling for everyone to be involved and be part of the ‘think-tank’. There are several ways community members can get involved:

    Community Workshops

    The City will be holding two community workshops. The purpose of the workshops will be to reflect on the City’s performance and past achievements and identify the vision and values for the community for the next four years. The community workshops will run in the evening and be facilitated by Norman Venus.
