Community Vision

Following months of engagement activities, we are happy to tell you Glen Eira that your draft Community Vision is now ready for exhibition!

How to provide feedback:

  • To honour their efforts, please take some time to read the draft Glen Eira 2040 Community Vision and complete the survey below.
  • Register here to join us for an online drop-in session on Wednesday 17 February at 6pm.

This is an opportunity to test whether they have appropriately captured Glen Eira’s aspirations, needs and values for the future.

Despite the dramatic changes that affected our lives in 2020, your community representatives (32 diverse, local residents who formed the final deliberative citizens panel) were able to push on to develop a draft community vision that we are now proud to present to you.

They worked hard for more than 25 hours, over several months, face to face and online to develop the Vision. They listened to each other, debated, struggled with the meaning and application of words, compromised their opinions and made some hard decisions to develop a community vision that includes; a vision statement, six principles and two minority reports.

It was a difficult but rewarding journey for them.

Once the exhibition closes at the end of February, your feedback will be collated and provided to your community representatives who will meet again in March 2021 to edit and finalise Community Vision reflecting on the feedback and comments received.

Thank you once again for your contributions and feedback.

  • Your community representatives have worked hard to develop this draft Vision for Glen Eira;

    Our Glen Eira: A thriving community of empowered citizens working together for an inclusive and sustainable future.

    The draft vision statement (above) is also accompanied by six principles and two minority reports. After you have had the chance to read the draft Community Vision, we would love to hear your thoughts on the following questions: 

    • Does the draft community vision appropriately represent the aspirations and values of the Glen Eira community?
    • Are there are any elements that are missing or not represented clearly?

    We recommend that you keep the Community Vision document open while completing this survey. 

    This information will be provided to our Deliberative Citizens' Panel for one final panel day to finalise and edit the Glen Eira 2040 Community Vision in response to your comments.
