A smart city is a city that uses data and innovation to be better — more sustainable, more liveable, and more economically productive.

In the middle of a digital revolution, we are looking to make the most of emerging technologies. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that we need to be more agile and resilient, and digital technology can help us do this.

This draft Smart Cities Roadmap highlights future smart city opportunities for the City of Glen Eira, include developing a 3D digital city model, enhancing local digital communication networks, and delivering digital skills training.

Roadmap background

The draft Roadmap was developed in late 2021, in collaboration with the community and local stakeholders. We had a fantastic response, with hundreds of people sharing their ideas, priorities, and concerns.

It provides direction for the ways in which we can use data, enhance connectivity, and improve digital technology to deliver improved services with greater efficiencies to the Glen Eira community.

The draft Roadmap reflects key community priorities, including:

  • Resource management: to improve waste, energy, and environment management.
  • City mobility: for better public transport, and reducing traffic and parking congestion.
  • Safety and health services: to create safer public spaces, and increase community connections and service accessibility.
  • Council: to increase transparency, partnerships, investments.
