Strategic planning provides the direction for a sustainable future that caters to our diverse community.
Strategic planning involves understanding local issues and providing strategies that will guide how land is used and developed in order to enjoy a quality lifestyle and the opportunity to live, work, play and do business locally.
To achieve this goal, the City reviews the economic, environmental and social trends to see where there are opportunities to meet the values, aspirations and needs of our community.
With consultation from the community, we prepare, review and implement planning legislation, policies and strategic projects. All of this helps to build a healthy and sustainable City.

The aims of strategic planning are achieved through statutory planning processes. If you need more information regarding this, please visit the Planning Services page.
