What is the Wyndham City Plan?
The Wyndham City Plan sets out the priorities which will guide the work done by Council over the next four years. It specifically identifies what Council is working towards under each theme. Each year, Council’s Annual Integrated Plan and Budget is shaped by the themes, strategic objectives and action strategies of the City Plan. In additional to being a legislated requirement for all Local Governments, this document is reported against to measure how well objectives are met.
The Draft Wyndham City Plan 2017-21 is open for public exhibition & comment from Wednesday 3 May to 5pm Wednesday 31 May, 2017. The community has the opportunity to submit their feedback to Council prior to the plan being finalised.
The community may also view and comment on the Draft Annual Integrated Plan & Budget 2017-18.
Printed copies of the City Plan and Feedback form are also available from your local Wyndham Library, Community Centre or Civic Centre.
Your printed feedback can be posted to:
Chief Executive Officer

How this Plan is different from previous City Plans
The 2017-21 City Plan will be Wyndham’s first to be founded on the Wyndham 2040 Community Vision, as well as the District Plans and the work of the District Advisory Committees. Community members’ vision for the municipality are central through the entire planning process and set the expectation for what Council will seek to achieve.
This will also be the first time that the Community Health, Wellbeing and Safety Plan will be integrated into the City Plan. The amalgamation of these two plans represents a whole-of-Council commitment, which means that it is the job of every service area and function at Council to improve the health, wellbeing and safety outcomes of the community.
Work so far
Council and our leadership team considered the feedback received through the Wyndham 2040 engagement process, as well as reviewed the findings of the District Open Days and the Annual Community Satisfaction Survey. Based on what you told us through these extensive consultations, a set of community priorities were proposed.
Through March 2017, Council tested these proposed priorities in three different ways:
- Interactive engagement activities across Districts
- Engagement workshop with targeted community leaders
- An online survey
Over 400 community members shared their views on what matters to them, and what Council should focus on for the next four years. The results of this early validation phase were published as a Findings Report [see below], which helped to inform the development of a Draft Plan.
