Have your say on Council’s strategic measures

Monday, July 18, 2022

City of Whittlesea residents are invited to provide their feedback on the list of strategic indicators that the Council use to measure and report on their progress towards achieving the long-term vision of Whittlesea 2040, a place for all.

The Whittlesea 2040 strategic indicators are used to meaningfully measure the City of Whittlesea’s performance and progress across the key goals outlined in the Whittlesea 2040 vision and in the recently adopted Community Plan 2021-2025 and form the basis of Council’s reporting framework.

Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said that updating the Whittlesea 2040 indicators would ensure that they are aligned to the current community and organisational needs while providing transparency and accountability for the work Council undertakes.

“We have added a number of new indicators based on the feedback we heard from our community when we consulted with them earlier this year to develop the Community Plan 2021-2025, including mental health, access to open space and carbon emissions,” Ms Wilson said.

“We have also made some changes to existing indicators to ensure they remain current and can adequately reflect the needs of our growing community.”

The proposed list of strategic indicators also includes five new indicators under High Performing Organisation including customer satisfaction, community engagement and community satisfaction with Council decision-making.

“These indicators are a critical measure for Council and enable us to strategically plan and prioritise our projects as we work towards achieving our shared vision,” Ms Wilson said.

To view the list of proposed strategic indicators and provide your feedback, visit Consultation is open until 7 August.
