Following the election of a new Council in November 2020, we are developing a new Council Plan (previously the City Plan) and reviewing the Wyndham 2040 Community Vision.
As part of this, we are working actively with the community to ensure your voice is represented in the renewed Community Vision and new Council Plan. Head on over to our dedicated page on the Loop for more information.
Wyndham has a long history of leading the way in community planning. First developed in 1997 as a vision for Wyndham in 2015, the Quality Community Plan lays out community aspirations and priorities for a better Wyndham. The last update of the Quality Community Plan was in 2007. Many of the 2015 and 2018 milestones have been met.
In 2015 the Quality Community Plan was updated through the Wyndham 2040 project with a new approach to community planning. This approach was locally-focused, strengths-based and community-driven and resulted in a new 2040 vision for the whole of Wyndham, with complimenting district plans that identified actions that Council and community would take over a four-year timeframe.
The Wyndham 2040 Community Plan is made up of the Wyndham 2040 Vision and four local area district plans for smaller areas within Wyndham. These documents were endorsed by Council at Ordinary Council Meeting on 22 February 2016.
In 2015 the Wyndham 2040 project explored the opportunities for Wyndham residents over the next 25 years. Council staff and volunteers collected 2,040 stories from community members identifying what people like about Wyndham now and what they hope it will be like in 2040.
A range of forums and workshops were held with community leaders, community service organisations and local business and industry leaders.
We are currently reviewing the Wyndham 2040 Community Vision. For more information, go to https://theloop.wyndham.vic.gov.au/help-shape-wyndhams-future
