What is our Community Vision 2040?
Our Community Vision 2040 was adopted by Council on 28 June 2021. Developed by our representative Community Panel of local residents, the Vision will help to guide planning and decision making by Council, our partners and the broader community to shape the future that our community wants to see, live and experience.
A Community Vision captures what the community values most about their community and sets out their key priorities and aspirations for the future. Our Community Vision forms part of Council’s strategic planning framework, ensuring that the community’s vision for the future of Frankston City is considered in Council’s strategic planning and decision making.
Why create a Community Vision?
A Community Vision is a requirement of the Local Government Act 2020 and must be developed with the local community to describe the community’s aspirations for the future of the municipality. It should describe the social, economic, cultural, and environmental aspirations for the future of the municipality.
The Community Vision also creates better connections between Council and the community, providing a shared vision to work towards.
What will the Community Vision be used for?
The Community Vision will ensure that the community’s priorities and aspirations for the future are considered in Council’s strategic planning and decision making processes. In particular, the Community Vision will help to shape the strategic priorities and directions in the four-year Council Plan to be established at the start of each Council term.
The Community Vision will also be used to ensure our partnerships with organisations and sectors in the community, such as not-for-profits, service organisations and local businesses are working towards the same community vision.
