You can read the Council Report and Minutes in the Key Documents section located on the right of this page.


The Community Plan is Council’s lead strategic document and sets the direction of Council activities.

This Community Plan builds on our positive trajectory and celebrates the best of our City. It’s respectful of where we came from, yet visionary. It’s hungry for global insights and knowledge but cherishes our community feel through our locally connected neighbourhoods.

City of Prospect is about a caring and connected community that embraces our history while pursuing a better and fairer future for all of us - simple as that!

Community is at the heart of what we do and everything we do as a Council aims to strengthen this heart through initiatives in quality of life, an inviting built environment, vibrant businesses and a greener future.

The Draft Community Plan to 2040 is built on 6 main themes (pillars):

  • Connected and Caring.
  • Active and Engaged.
  • Proud of our past, excited by our future.
  • Inclusive and Diverse.
  • Creative and Innovative.
  • Responsible and Sustainable.

Community Consultation was conducted from 2 to30 November 2020.

‘Across City of Prospect, we clearly share many passions.  Passions we confirmed after many conversations with residents, families, young people, community groups, sporting clubs, schools, businesses, investors and visitors.

You, our community, have told us that this City has already got many things right. So this Plan builds on our positive trajectory and celebrates the best of our City.  It’s respectful of where we came from, yet visionary.  It’s hungry for global insights and knowledge, but cherishes our community feel through our locally connected neighbourhoods.

City of Prospect is about a caring and connected community that embraces our history while pursuing a better and fairer future for all of us - simple as that!

Let’s enjoy the journey together.”
