CITY of Perth is seeking community feedback on how to shape its future.

Public consultation has opened up for the City Planning Strategy, which will establish a vision under the Strategic Community Plan to better respond to social trends, economic drivers, environment, cultural change and population growth.

Deputy Lord Mayor Jemma Green said the aim was to identify localised trends, priorities and values within city neighbourhoods.

“Perth city is made up of a number of distinctive neighbourhoods, each with their own identity, qualities, strengths, weaknesses and drivers,” Dr Green said.

“We will harness the energy and interest emerging in neighbourhoods to create a long-term strategic urban land use plan that provides direction on the City of Perth’s decision making for the next 10 to 15 years.

“With more than 40,000 residents expected to be living in the city by 2030, we must act now to secure a bright and healthy future.”
