Theme 1: Vibrant Communities
By 2050 our community wishes to be better connected through:
- accessible health and community services
- activities for young people
- communal social settings
- community buildings
- public places for people to gather
- recreational facilities
We will be fit and healthy with access to safe and nutritious food, sport, and high-quality community infrastructure.
Our main streets will be vibrant and full of life, with people of all ages coming together to connect, play and socialise.
Quotes from our community
I envisage a state of the art hospital with an ED that will have a doctor on throughout the night, not just nurses. The services will expand the hospital to support other tests for the community rather than having to go to another hospital.
A first-class gym. There are hardly any classes available at the moment and the ones that are running are at really bad times. I would love to see a great spin studio and a women’s only gym.
Aquatic centres to rival those of metro suburbs.
No judgement within our community. People from all ages and backgrounds feel connected and not isolated.
