To help form our 10-year Community Vision and four-year Council Plan 2021–25, we completed a period of deliberative engagement with a broad cross-section of the community throughout March 2021.
We asked community members what mattered most when they thought about the future of the city, and why.
Community members shape City of Melbourne’s Community Vision and Council Plan
We spoke with more than 750 people who live, work, study, visit or own a business in the municipality to understand what our community values most about the city.
Who we reached:
online survey submissions
intercept surveys across the city
participants in neighbourhood workshops
participants in targeted workshop
With three Traditional Custodian groups, people with a disability, children, young people, families, culturally and linguistically diverse communities
What we heard
Overall, the community’s top aspirations were for Melbourne to be a city that:
- is healthy and safe
- considers climate change in everything that we do
- is inclusive, accessible and affordable.
Examples of what we heard
The community’s feedback was gathered and synthesised into a series of insights and aspirations that helped to create the 10-year Community Vision and four-year Council Plan.
