In 2040, compassion is at the heart of our community.
A compassionate community makes sure that everyone feels cared for and supported in a deep and meaningful way. It makes our City increasingly welcoming, whether you’ve just arrived or your family has been here for generations.
What that appeal feels like is different for everyone. It might be having a job you like within easy reach or knowing your neighbour's name. Or maybe something even simpler, like hearing birds in the trees outside your window.
Our community offers a sense of place that includes everyone, where people from all walks of life are valued for who they area and the qualities they bring with them.
The four goals below will help achieve the vision. To realise each of these goals, our work will be focused on three key directions.
Whittlesea 2040: A place for all will guide all of the work we do here at Council.
To achieve this vision we will:
Whittlesea 2040: A place for all, builds on the achievements of Shaping Our Future Whittlesea 2030 and provides a new long term vision for the City of Whittlesea.
Over 10 months, we conducted research, workshopped priorities, and spoke with thousands of people as well as community groups and organisations across the municipality.
We undertook research to understand where the City of Whittlesea is at now and the trends that will share the future. As part of this work we prepared a Whittlesea 2040 Background Research Paper and summary Fact sheets.
Over three months we also gathered over 4,700 individual community comments from anyone who lives, works, studies, plays in or visits the City of Whittlesea. A Whittlesea 2040 Community Engagement Summary Report was developed to inform the Whittlesea 2040 vision.
