Knox City Council's City Plan 2013-2017

City Plan

Have your say about living, working, learning and playing in Knox...

We would like to hear from individuals, community groups and businesses in Knox to help us plan for the future. The Municipal Survey is one of a number of ways you can give us your perspective on some of the key issues facing your community. The survey is the first big step in developing the new Knox City Plan.

Whether you’re a resident, business owner, a representative of a community group or anyone who works, learns or plays in Knox, choose the relevant survey link below to have your say:

The survey closes at 5pm on Thursday 7 July 2016 and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Have your say now and go into the running to win one of ten $50 Westfield shopping vouchers (see the link to the Terms and Conditions below).

City Plan 2013-17

Through the Knox@50 community engagement project in 2012-13, many Knox residents, business people and community members shared their ideas and thoughts to create a Vision for the Knox community. A City Plan was also developed, which outlines how Knox’s Vision will be achieved.

The City Plan identifies shared objectives for the future of Knox and are implemented through the effort of multiple agencies and stakeholders.

Included in the City Plan is the Council Plan, which outlines the strategic direction of Council and is resourced by the Strategic Resource Plan. It also assists in annually identifying key projects and actions for the coming year which are outlined in the Annual Plan and resourced through the Annual Budget.

Take a look at our short video that talks about the collaboration between Council and the community to develop the Vision and City Plan, and outlines what our priorities are going forward.

The Knox Vision and original City Plan (incorporating the Council Plan) 2013-17 were formally adopted at an Ordinary Meeting of Council on Tuesday 25 June 2013. Through Council's annual planning process, the City Plan was reviewed and some amendments were made to the Council Plan. Council formally adopted the revised City Plan (incorporating the Council Plan) 2013-2017 on Tuesday 23 June 2015.

At its meeting on 28 July, Council adopted the inaugural State of Knox Report and the Integrated City Strategy and Implementation Plan. The State of Knox Report was developed to assist Council to monitor and measure its progress toward the achievement of the Knox Vision on a regular basis.

The Integrated City Strategy is based on detailed research compiled in the 'State of Knox' report. It combines the Community Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2013-17, Economic Development Strategy 2008-18, Sustainable Environment Strategy 2008-18 and elements of the Council Plan. It provides Council with a single platform to implement the Knox Vision and City Plan, provide robust strategic direction and reduces duplication of effort across key initiatives. The Strategy has a two year outlook initially from 2015 to 2017 and is intended to inform the review and development of the next City Plan.
