Wakefield 2030 - 10 year community plan

1st October 2020

"Wakefield is a great place to do business and a great place to belong." That's the vision for the Wakefield 2030 Community Plan.

Following our community engagement process, Council has used feedback from face-to-face workshops, written submissions and online surveys to formalise a new vision and three key themes or areas of focus to guide us in achieving our plans for the next 10 years.

Council is seeking feedback on the plan to ensure it covers the needs and wants of our community.

Wakefield is a great place to live, work and play. Our vibrant, attractive towns
are full of energy and excitement, with places and spaces designed for people
to pursue recreation, leisure and fun. Our communities are connected by social
events, a sense of pride and belonging and quality infrastructure that serves
them well.

Wakefield is open for business. Our region’s economic future is bright as
existing businesses thrive and expand, while new businesses and industries put
down local roots. Our population is growing as people recognise the affordable,
quality lifestyle on offer, with new housing options enticing people to move to
the area.

Wakefield has a clean, green future. Strong partnerships between Council,
the community and other agencies have been formed as we come together to
manage our environment in the best possible way. We are seen as a region that
respects its natural assets and seeks sustainable outcomes for the community.
