The City of Canning undertakes land-use planning that takes an integrated, transit-oriented design approach to help improve accessibility, mobility and sustainable local economic growth.

We integrate green infrastructure into the built and natural landscape to future-proof the City against the impacts of climate change. This includes:

  • heat island effect
  • water management and drainage infrastructure pressures
  • energy and fuel poverty
  • mental and physical health impacts.

We acknowledge the importance of building, maintaining and improving our facilities to:

  • ensure operational efficiency
  • reduce the impact of current and future operations
  • ensure their optimal operation by City staff and community users through education and support.

Strategic Community Plan

The Strategic Community Plan (PDF 3MB) was developed in close collaboration with our community. The Plan helps us better understand what is important – both now and into the future – and the expectation of the City of Canning as an organisation. It will guide and inform every decision we make for the next 10 years.
