Your community, your say (Next community engagement phase coming soon)
Your community, your say – the City of Wanneroo is reviewing its various community social plans, and is seeking your thoughts, feedback and priorities.
The City’s vision is that of a healthy, safe, vibrant and connected community – and our various community social plans help us design and deliver programs, services and infrastructure that bring that vision to life. They also inform how we work with our diverse and growing community.
We are currently seeking your input on:
- Services and infrastructure in your local community that support your wellbeing
- Opportunities to participate and connect with your community
- What you feel are priority areas or issues for the local community.
Your input will help us to develop new community focused plans that will guide how we deliver the vision and community wellbeing over the next four years.
We encourage participation from all community members and especially from young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members, young families, seniors, people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, people with disability, and other vulnerable members of our community.
The community survey closed on 11 April 2021.
If you have any queries, contact Community Development Planner Alison Leitch. (See contact details below)
