Social Infrastructure Report endorsed by Council

At the Ordinary Council Meeting on 22 June 2021, Council endorsed the City's first Social Infrastructure Report.

Our community is growing and to assist with the planning and development of social infrastructure over the next 30 years the City has prepared a Social Infrastructure Report and Social Infrastructure Inventory. Thank you to those who have taken part in our focus groups and completed the survey. We had over 100 responses to our survey, and gained valuable insight into the needs of the community. Congratulations to David from Shenton Park on winning the survey prize draw; a $100 dining voucher at his chosen local restaurant, the Lady of Ro.

In 2020, the project (then known as the Social Infrastructure Plan project) was presented to Council and a decision made to reconceptualise the scope. The project deliverables were then reformed into the Social Infrastructure Report and the Social Infrastructure Inventory.

The Social Infrastructure Report is a guiding document that will outline opportunities for the provision of social infrastructure to meet the needs of the population and better provide for our residents now and into the future. It will inform decision making on what to invest in and what to advocate for on behalf of the community. With changing policy directions, demographics, population, aging infrastructure and financial constraints, a more efficient and sustainable approach to social infrastructure planning is necessary to ensure the ongoing quality of life for our communities.

The Social Infrastructure Inventory is an operational document summarising the City’s social assets, such as community centres, recreational facility, library, museum, parks, car parks and other properties.

What is Social Infrastructure?

Social Infrastructure includes facilities, services, networks and spaces that are used by our community, for example, schools, parks, libraries, community centres and hospitals. For more information please see the project FAQs.
