Neighbourhood Planning and Engagement Framework & Policy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


We are moving onto the next phase

To enable the City of Perth (City) to respond to the unique characteristics, needs and opportunities within each neighbourhood, ensuring close collaboration with the community when making decisions, undertaking city planning and delivering services, infrastructure, activation and other projects we are seeking a 21 day public community consultation on the Draft Neighbourhood Planning and Engagement Policy.

The Neighbourhood Planning and Engagement Policy sets the philosophy and principles for the neighbourhood approach and embeds them within the governance framework of the City. It is a guiding document for decision making and strategy into the future for both Council and the administration. You can review the policy here

Some examples of the types of statements that might form the City’s Neighbourhood Policy are as follows:

  • Answering the ‘why’ of neighbourhood place planning & engagement (core purpose).
  • Desired focus and outcomes of the neighbourhood place approach.
  • Description of the kind of approach to engagement, planning and management of neighbourhoods the city will take (eg bespoke, inclusive, diverse).
  • Definition of active citizenship/community empowerment and its relationship to place making.
  • Articulation of how to develop closer links between the organisation and the community.

    • What do you think should be in a Neighbourhood Policy?
    • What do you think should be in a Neighbourhood Charter and what is its value?
    • What do you think should be in a Neighbourhood Plan?
    • What does collaboration look like to you, both with the City and within your community?
    • Collectively, what are we currently doing well to collaborate on neighbourhood place planning and engagement?
    • Collectively, what can we do better in relation to neighbourhood place planning and/or engagement?
