Since November 2016 we've been working with the Boroondara community to develop a 10-year community plan. The plan will outline the vision and priorities for the future.

To develop the plan we needed to know what our community thinks is important. So we created an extensive engagement program and talked to as many people as possible who live, work or study in Boroondara to hear their ideas for the development of the plan.

Over the six-month engagement program, we’ve received over 11,500 responses, which is an amazing result and residents should feel very proud to be part of such an engaged community.

Thank you to the many who gave their time, energy and ideas. With so much goodwill and community involvement, we will be able to create a community plan which will help guide our policies, actions and budgets for the coming decade.

Next steps

In the coming months, we’ll analyse the data from our extensive engagement program and prepare a community engagement report which will be released to our community in July 2017.

The community feedback will directly inform the development of the Boroondara community plan and future Council policies, actions and budgets for the next 10 years.

The draft community plan will then be released to the community for comment in September 2017. After incorporating your further thoughts and comments, we'll formally present the plan for adoption in December 2017.
