A strategy is a long term plan for success, they help us outline where we want to be and how we are going to get there.

Strategies also help identify what the plans are for the future of the city and the region and community engagement is a vital part of our strategy development.

Below are the strategies that are currently in force. In parallel we are developing a number of high level strategies that will support our aspiration of being an internationally competitive city that delivers a higher standard of living for all. These strategies will be aspirational, focussed on outcomes rather than issues, and will help us shape our city now and into the future. In time, these strategies will either incorporate or supersede some of the strategies set out below.
