Social Infrastructure Plan 2014-2031 review

We developed a Social Infrastructure Plan (SIP) in 2014 to provide Council with a blueprint for the planning, investment and delivery of social infrastructure to meet the needs of a growing and changing community.

We have 500 plus social infrastructure buildings worth over $250 million for the community to access. These buildings offer a range of services and activities.

To ensure these buildings can meet the needs of the community now and into the future, we have developed a 15 year plan to assist and guide the planning, investment and delivery of Social Infrastructure.

We are currently undertaking a review of the plan and would like to provide the community with the opportunity to be involved with shaping the future direction of the plan.

What is Social Infrastructure?

The term Social Infrastructure is used to describe a range of community places, spaces and facilities such as community centres, meeting spaces, sports pavilions, libraries, kindergartens, senior citizen’s centres and maternal and child health centres.

All these infrastructure types create positive opportunities for community participation, and are extremely important to the health and well-being of local residents and visitors to our municipality.

SIP focus groups

As part of the review, we want to engage with the community on the planning principles underpinning the plan.

A range of focus groups were held during November 2017 providing opportunities for people to be involved.

The insights and outcomes from the Social Infrastructure Plan review consultations will be used to inform a progress report in March 2018.
