Mayor’s Welcome

It’s an exciting time to live in City of Prospect! I am delighted to present this Strategic Plan to guide Council’s operations towards 2020. Drawing directly from an extensive community consultation engaging over 600 residents in response to our draft plan, we have been encouraged that Council is on-track to meet the current and future aspirations of our residents.

People, Place, Prosperity and Services are the four cornerstones of this Plan, with an eye to the day to day operations to lead the sector in service delivery whilst maintaining a strong focus on future prosperity. Good governance, accountable and people-focused service delivery, responsible waste management and well maintained city infrastructure will be the catch-cry of how we do business.

What will Prospect look like in four years? We believe that the City will continue to grow and prosper; we will continue to leverage our digital advantage, facilitate a vibrant night-life within the Village Heart and create more offerings of things to do, facilitate more jobs, whilst ensuring our parks and places are loved by residents and visitors. The plan strives for a greener future for our City whilst being known as a culturally diverse and creative community.

This Strategic Plan is designed to inspire action and clearly articulate the Council direction for all.


People, Place, Prosperity – Great Prospects

Strategic Overview

Council has developed the Strategic Plan to 2020 to guide the delivery of services and initiatives for the benefit of all City of Prospect residents and visitors both now and into the future.

The Plan has been informed by extensive community consultation with close consideration given to the requirements of the recently updated State Government 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide, SA State Premier – Seven Strategic Priorities and key Council strategic documents, including Better Living Better Health – Regional Public Health and Wellbeing Plan.

Local Government Act
  • provides scope for Councils to determine levels of participation, involvement or direct service delivery for their local communities;
  • makes specific reference to the importance of service provision, equity of access to services and the use of resources in an effective and efficient manner;
  • encourages participation with other Councils, Regional bodies and State and National Governments in public policy setting and achieving mutually common objectives; and
  • seeks the coordination and participation by Councils in the planning and delivery of services by all spheres of Government.

Please find the below links to key strategic documents that have guided Council in the development of this Strategic Plan to 2020. These documents are important as they consider the wider context beyond the boundaries of City of Prospect that create opportunities whilst affecting and influencing our communities.
