Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPIN­ION -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park’s project Evolve takes a new ap­proach to lo­cal gov­ern­ment prac­tices by call­ing on the com­mu­nity to help plan the Town’s fu­ture.

Leg­is­la­tion states each lo­cal gov­ern­ment must pre­pare a set of strate­gic doc­u­ments to guide the fu­ture di­rec­tion of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, known as the In­te­grated Plan­ning and Re­port­ing Frame­work.

One part of the Frame­work is the prepa­ra­tion of a Strate­gic Com­mu­nity Plan, which is pre­sented to the com­mu­nity for com­ment then adopted by Coun­cil with min­i­mal change.

The Town has turned this process on its head by tak­ing the com­mu­nity on the jour­ney from the start, ask­ing for ideas on plan­ning for the fu­ture, based on com­mu­nity needs and wants.
