This vision forms the foundation of the City's Strategic Community Plan, with each part of the vision represented as a specific community aspiration. To achieve these aspirations, clearly defined community outcomes have been identified. These outcomes further illustrate how the community would like the City of Kwinana to look in 10 years' time.
Strategic Community Plan
The City of Kwinana's Strategic Community Plan (SCP) outlines the vision, outcomes and strategic objectives for the community over the next 10 years. It's a strategic roadmap of where the community want to go and how we're going to get there.
More importantly, the Plan is based on extensive community consultation which included thousands of pieces of feedback compiled into a distinct vision.

As outlined in our Strategic Community Plan 2021-2031, the City of Kwinana has committed to align with the globally recognised set of 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The City of Kwinana Sustainability Framework has been developed to facilitate sustainability being applied across the City’s operations and strategic approach. The Sustainability Framework addresses all four components of sustainability: social, economic, environmental and governance.
The development process included engagement with our community and staff to determine our local sustainability priorities.
There are two main components within the Sustainability Framework.
Sustainability Guiding Principles
These are a set of eight principles that will be applied across the City’s operations to check if planning and decisions support the sustainable outcomes they represent. These are further described within the Sustainability Framework.
The framework also includes a set of seven Priority Areas, as below. These are more specific, only apply to particular work areas and are intended to provide additional guidance and direction to help achieve the outcomes that they identify. These are further described within the Sustainability Framework.
For more information, please refer to the Sustainability Framework.
The City’s vision is supported by five community outcomes:
- A naturally beautiful environment that is enhanced and protected
- A resilient and thriving economy with exciting opportunities
- Infrastructure and services that are affordable and contribute to health and wellbeing
- A unique, vibrant and healthy City that is safe, connected and socially diverse
- Visionary leadership dedicated to acting for its community
These outcomes are activated by the City’s strategic objectives and the achievement of these strategic objectives is delivered through the City’s driving strategies/plans, supporting services and key projects.
Updating the Vision and SCP Review
The SCP is required to undertake a major review once every four years, with a minor review every two years to ensure that the community’s changing aspirations are reflected.
The last major review of the City’s SCP occurred in 2021, with a minor review being completed in 2023. The SCP will undertake its next major review in 2025.
