Refreshing the Boroondara Community Plan for the next 10 years

We’re refreshing the Boroondara Community Plan to ensure it reflects the current needs and aspirations of our community.

In December and January, more than 4,700 people told us what’s most important to them during Stage 1 of consultation to refresh the Boroondara Community Plan.

In March and April, over 160 people representative of Boroondara’s diverse community participated in the Boroondara Conversations workshops to deliberate on Stage 1 findings and key community issues.

Thank you to everyone who had their say.

How results of the community consultation will be used

The findings from Stage 1 and the Boroondara Conversations workshops will inform how the Boroondara Community Plan can be refreshed.

A draft Boroondara Community Plan 2021-31 will be released for public comment in late August/September 2021.

The consultation process

Consulting with our community through a large scale survey in December and January, followed by deliberative workshops in March and April, is consistent with the consultation method undertaken to develop the Boroondara Community Plan in 2016-17. The consultation process is a legislative requirement under the Local Government Act 2020, which requires all Victorian councils to work with the community to develop or update a long-term vision by October 2021.

The Boroondara Community Plan

The Boroondara Community Plan outlines a 10-year vision for Boroondara’s future.

Every 4 years, we check back in with our community to ensure the Plan continues to reflect their current needs and priorities.
