Big tick for sur­vey re­sponse

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News - Aaron Cor­lett

MORE than 1000 peo­ple took part in the City of South Perth’s Vi­sion 2027 sur­vey to con­trib­ute to the coun­cil’s pri­or­i­ties for the next 10 years.

The sur­vey is a part of a ma­jor re­view of the City’s 10year Strate­gic Com­mu­nity Plan and the com­ments and ideas col­lected will in­form Stage Two of the Vi­sion 2027 con­sul­ta­tion process, which in­cludes com­mu­nity and stake­holder work­shops to be held in Fe­bru­ary 2017.

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said the feed­back had been in­cred­i­ble and she thanked all who took part.

“We asked peo­ple what pri­or­i­ties they wanted the City to fo­cus on over the next 10 years, what they liked most about liv­ing in or vis­it­ing the City, and what ideas they had to make the City a bet­ter place to live and visit,” she said.

“A broad range of ideas were pre­sented, we re­ceived con­sid­ered and in­sight­ful re­sponses from a re­ally di­verse cross sec­tion of the com­mu­nity.

“Peo­ple com­mented on ev­ery­thing from pub­lic trans­port to parking and traf­fic, trees and pub­lic open spa­ces, and cy­cle­ways to name just a few.”

Ms Do­herty said the fi­nal re­sult was go­ing to be a strate­gic com­mu­nity plan that ac­cu­rately re­flected the com­mu­nity’s as­pi­ra­tions with a strong em­pha­sis on their pri­or­i­ties for the City.

Peo­ple who would like to at­tend a Vi­sion 2027 work­shop are in­vited to visit Your Say South Perth, the City’s en­gage­ment por­tal, and reg­is­ter their in­ter­est.

Stage Three will see the draft 2017-2027 plan re­leased for com­mu­nity and stake­holder feed­back in April 2017. The fi­nal plan will be pre­sented to the coun­cil in June 2017.
