Wyndham City Council is leading Wyndham’s evolution in becoming a Smart City. We are embracing new and emerging technology, data and innovation aiming for new frontiers of liveability and prosperity.
However, a city government cannot build a modern, smart city by going it alone - all stakeholders need to work together.
Wyndham City developed the Smart City Strategy 2019-2024 and Smart City Implementation Plan following a multi-pronged approach that included surveys, direct consultation, best practice review, expert advice and integration with corporate strategies and plans across multiple disciplines. The strategy was adopted at the Ordinary Council Meeting on June 25, 2019.
Our Wyndham, Towards 2040 is our plan to better meet the emerging needs and aspirations of our community by delivering enhanced customer experiences, driving efficiency and delivering the best possible value to our community.
The Smart City Strategy 2019-2024 and Smart City Implementation Plan expands on this and highlights the prioritisation placed on the future of transport, environmental challenges and driving modern local services.
The strategy forms a key pillar of Council's vision for Wyndham to become a connected digital city and defines how the city can use emerging technology and innovation to shape how our citizens, visitors and businesses work, play and live in our future city.
2019/2021 Smart City Strategy Progress
A key component of the strategy is to reflect on progress and keep our community informed of progress. Since adoption, we have had significant achievements with the delivery of a number of smart projects and initiatives including:
- The completion of one of Australia's leading smart parking systems within the Werribee City Centre
- Implementation of the Wyndham Solar City Project, one of the largest rollouts of commercial-scale rooftop solar by a local government
- The Smart Places & Spaces project deployed a range of technology such as public Wi-Fi, smartphone charging stations, smart bins and smart barbecues across the city.
