What we need to consider

By 2041, Cockburn's population will be around 40% larger than it is today. As we grow, we face numerous planning challenges. Together with our community, the City needs to consider ways to:

  • Identify and prioritise facility needs so we can deliver the important things sooner
  • Plan for projects in a fiscally responsible way so we can meet current and future needs
  • Share our limited spaces more effectively so we can accommodate the different and sometimes competing needs within our community

Your feedback will help us to understand community needs better. After the feedback period, we will prepare a draft plan. This process considers the community feedback we receive alongside a demographic analysis, needs assessment, provision guidelines, town planning documents and other technical criteria. 

How to participate

We want to hear which Cockburn facilities meet your needs, which need improving, and what types of facilities we are missing.
