Consultation has concluded

Latest Updates


In 2019 we asked the community what would make them feel proud of their local area and what we (Council) needed to do to deliver on this expectation.

The feedback we received through the Delivering a Place You Can Be Proud Of exhibition has helped us better understand your priority issues and the areas we need to focus on. We heard of the desire to live in a clean, tidy and well-maintained City.

At the 6 December 2022 Ordinary Meeting, Council authorised the exhibition of the draft Clean City Strategic Plan and Clean City Action Plan and, we invite you to view these documents, have your say and provide feedback.

What’s in the Clean City Strategic Plan?

The draft Clean City Strategic Plan and Clean City Action Plan have been developed to guide Council resources and actions to address six key focus areas. These focus areas are:

Prevent illegal dumping Prevent household items (e.g. furniture, mattresses, used clothes), construction materials, and asbestos being dumped in public places and, increase awareness that dumping is illegal and fines apply.
Clean and tidy town centres Improve the 'look and feel" of town centres through:
  • better service coordination;
  • improved infrastructure installation and maintenance; and
  • increased engagement with residents and businesses. Community outreach will aim to build an understanding of shared responsibility for keeping town centres clean and tidy.
Clean and tidy parks Improve the maintenance and servicing of parks and, develop litter prevention campaigns to encourage residents to look after their local parks.
Clean and tidy public toilets Improve the usability of toilet facilities by increasing their maintenance and servicing.
Healthy waterways Reduce pollution and litter, including organic matter (i.e. sediment, grass), drink containers, plastic bags, food packaging, cigarette butts and microplastics. Waterways include rivers, creeks, open water bodies, drainage lines and close pipe systems.
Organisational wide actions Increase co-ordination and collaboration across Council to create a clean, tidy and well-maintained City.

What's in the Clean City Action Plan

The draft Clean City Action Plan details the 39 actions proposed for the key focus areas which will be measured by resident satisfaction in the Community Satisfaction Survey. The Plan proposes:

  • 22 Actions to be delivered in the short term (less than two years) as they are currently in place and need to be continued and/or expanded to meet the objectives of the Plan; and
  • 17 Actions to be delivered over a medium term (two to four years).
