Community Vision 2040

We are developing a community vision to capture the community’s priorities and aspirations to help shape the future of Frankston City

Whether you live or work in Frankston City, or study or visit here, we want to hear from you. The Community Vision provides you with an opportunity to share your aspirations to influence the future of Frankston City over the next 20 years to 2040.

What is a Community Vision?

A Community Vision captures what the community values most about their community and sets out their key priorities and aspirations for the future. Once developed, the Community Vision will form part of Council’s strategic planning framework, ensuring that the community’s vision for the future of Frankston City is considered in Council’s strategic planning and decision making. 

What's your vision for Frankston City area and Community by 2040?

These are extraordinary times…

Council acknowledges we are experiencing an unusually difficult and stressful time at the moment, so it may be hard for the community to think so far ahead. However, the Community Vision is a good reminder that we all have the opportunity to significantly improve the future of Frankston City.

What will the Community Vision be used for?

The Community Vision will ensure that the community’s priorities and aspirations for the future are considered in Council’s strategic planning and decision making processes. In particular, the vision will help to shape the strategic priorities and directions in the four-year Council Plan to be established at the start of each Council term.

The Community Vision also ensures Council continues to work towards the same overarching vision with our existing partnerships with organisations and sectors in the community, such as not-for-profits, service organisations and local businesses.

How will the Community Vision be developed?

There are five stages of engagement for the development of the Community Vision for Frankston City 2040. This process will also be used to guide the development of the Council Plan 2021-2025.

Stage 1: August–September 2020

We reached out during August and September to those who live, work, study and visit Frankston City, asking what you value, hope won’t change, what could be improved, and what you wish for Frankston City and community in 2040. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback, it has been invaluable to the Community Vision process.

Stage 2: November 2020

We will be establishing our Community Panel, bringing together diverse members of our community to imagine and plan our shared future. We will be seeking expressions of interest, and an independent consultant will select panel members who represent the broad community. These community members will review the findings from the first stage of engagement and develop the new Community Vision 2040. 

Stage 3: November Christmas 2020

We once again will be reaching to the community to delve deeper into the community’s priorities for the future, to help shape the development of the Council Plan 2021-2025.

Stage 4: Early 2021

The Community Panel will reconvene to consider the community’s feedback and make recommendations for the new Council Plan 2021-2025.

Stage 5: March 2021

Presentation of the Draft Community Vision for Frankston City 2040 and Council Plan 2021-2025 for you to read and provide feedback on.
