Place Planning

The Town of Victoria Park Place Approach

Traditionally councils have separated the responsibility of delivering great places across a variety of different disciplines. This siloed approach inevitably ends in conflict and competition and, in some instances, can lead to less than desirable outcomes for places.

The Town of Victoria Park is breaking down these silos and instead working more collegially across the disciplines, or Service Areas, to deliver great place outcomes. This approach is spearheaded by the Town’s Place Planning team and it’s Place Leaders who are each responsible for a neighbourhood of the Town. Place Leaders are the vision keeper and manager for their respective neighbourhood and have a broad understanding of the activities, issues and complexities of their place.

Additionally, the Place Planning team bring to the Town expertise in the core disciplines of:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Urban Design
  • Urban Forest
  • Landscape Architecture
  • Economic Development
  • Transport Planning
