Shape Baysie - Major Review Strategic Community Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Help shape a bright future for our City by taking part in the major review of the City of Bayswater Strategic Community Plan.

What is the Strategic Community Plan?

The Strategic Community Plan (SCP) is the framework that guides everything we do at the City of Bayswater and ensures decision making is in line with community expectations. All Local Governments in Western Australia are required to have a ten-year SCP developed with the community to outline community vision and priorities. You can view the City's current 2017-2027 Strategic Community Plan in the document library.

Why review the Strategic Community Plan?

The development and review of a SCP is a statutory requirement of the State Government’s Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework. The Local Government Act requires the SCP to have a minor review every two years and a full review every four years to ensure it's relevance and responsiveness.

What have we done so far?

During the first stage of community engagement, we asked two questions - what does being part of the City of Bayswater community mean to you and what you would like us to do in the future? We gathered input from a wide range of community members at local community events, at our libraries, at local schools and online. You can check out some of the feedback we received in the Ideas Board tab below.

The second stage of engagement involved a series of community workshops undertaken in June, most of which were held online via Zoom, to enable people to gather together and provide input during a time of physical distancing. Alongside these workshops we invited people to complete an online or hard copy Kitchen Conversation Kit. All of the information gathered was considered alongside the City's key strategic commitments and informed the development of the draft Strategic Community Plan 2021 - 2031.

How can I get involved?

In the current and third stage of engagement the City is inviting feedback on the Draft SCP document. Please provide feedback below, either by completing the survey, or if you prefer by making a written submission. If you provide your feedback by 5pm on 10 March, you can be in the draw to win one of two $100 gift vouchers.

Please bear in mind that the aspirations contained within the Strategic Community Plan are delivered through the City’s Corporate Business Plan, which maps out a four year program with timeframes for making those aspirations a reality.

We're here to help, so please get in touch with us by calling 9272 0991 or send us an email at engage@bayswater.wa.gov.au with any questions.

  • Throughout the last year we asked our community to ‘shape the future of Baysie’ by participating in a major visioning exercise to help us create our new Strategic Community Plan (SCP). The document captures the City’s vision, priorities and aspirations for the next ten years, as outlined by the community.

    We collected feedback through a number of channels to give people many opportunities to be involved.  The input received, together with other relevant information, is reflected in the draft SCP. The information collected fits under three broad themes:

    Leadership and Governance emerged as an overarching theme which outlines the City’s commitment to open communication, meaningful engagement, good customer service and delivering projects in a sustainable way.

    We are now seeking your input on the Draft Strategic Community Plan 2021-2031 before final adoption by Council, to ensure it reflects the community's aspirations. 

    Please note that the submission period closes Wednesday March 10 5:00pm
