Developing the Vision

In 2016, 2,040 stories were collected from our residents, local businesses, community leaders and organisations about Wyndham. The community told us what they liked about the municipality, and what their hopes were for our City’s future.

Since then, a lot has changed. The Wyndham community has seen new development and many new residents from a wide variety of backgrounds have moved into our community, calling our suburbs home. You can read more about Wyndham’s key demographics here.

In 2021, Council launched the ‘Help Shape Wyndham’s Future’ project to refresh the existing Wyndham 2040 Community Vision. This included a deliberative community engagement process that acknowledged and recognised the stories and contributions that informed the first Wyndham 2040 Vision. This formed the foundation by which the community refreshed the Wyndham 2040 Community Vision in 2021.

Watch this short video for an overview of how our community refreshed the Wyndham 2040 Community Vision.


Help Shape Wyndham's Future - Community Conversations

At these community conversations, a set of place based priorities were also developed. The place based priories help us understand the unique needs of our community and will inform the development of the Council Plan and other key strategic documents.

Council's initial responses to these place based priorities are detailed here. These will be reviewed and the community updated annually.


Council’s role

The Wyndham 2040 Community Vision will guide how Council directs the resources under its control, and therefore its work. It sets the direction for future Council policies and work including the Municipal Strategic Statement, Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan, Asset Plan and Long-Term Financial Plan.

Council will present its strategic priorities to work towards the Wyndham 2040 Community Vision in its four-year Council Plan, and on an annual basis through its Annual Plan and Budget.
