Vision and strategy


Vibrant, connected, progressive. This is community's aspiration for Perth as a city.

While Perth has a rich history as an older civilisation, as a city it is young in comparison to other cities throughout the world. The feedback from the city's citizens indicated they want Perth to be a city that is a great place for people to live, work and visit. Citizens want it to be a beautiful connected city that provides vibrant, diverse and friendly experiences.

Perth should not only be a city that is bold and progressive in its way of life but should also have a sense of distinctiveness that people can confidently promote – a community that knows itself and one that delivers a unique experience.

Strategic Community Plan

The City of Perth is working towards becoming a leader in open government by actively listening and collaborating with its citizens, community and stakeholders in the development of the Strategic Community Plan.

In 2017, the City of Perth undertook extensive consultation to develop the City's Strategic Community Plan. This plan provides the blueprint for the City to achieve what the community most values in its operations, with a view to build and enhance our capital city.

Perth has transformed at an exceptionally rapid pace in recent years. We have seen the development of new public spaces, revitalisation of parks and laneways, increased activation through artworks and family friendly events, and world class food and beverage scene continuing to offer delightful new experiences.

The City of Perth will continue to partner with stakeholders, to build a sense of vibrancy that supports economic growth and helps Perth compete on the world stage as a great destination. With the help and support of the City's community, key stakeholders and our skilled staff, we can deliver against our Strategic Community Plan, to create a city that is vibrant, connected and progressive.
