Community Plan

Following extensive community consultation, Council first adopted its Towards 2025 Community Plan in 2009. The Community Plan is our shared vision for the City of West Torrens. The plan’s purpose is to:

  • reflect community aspirations as long term objectives
  • outline strategies to achieve these.

It aims to balance competing pressures in building communities that meet and support the needs of residents.

How the Community Plan is used

The Community Plan forms the basis for all our activities. It’s used to direct our annual planning processes to ensure our long term vision and aspirations are delivered. Each year Council department adopts an:

  • Annual Service Plans - that outlines the projects it will focus on and how it will contribute to delivering the long-term priorities documented in the Community Plan.
  • Annual Business Plan pdf (3MB) - which assesses and allocates financial resources to the delivery of projects and their long-term priorities.



The Community Plan is monitored and reviewed regularly to:

  • measure its success
  • reflect the changing aspirations of our community.

Reports on the progress of the Community Plan are issued every three months.
