What is 'Better Places'?
Council has trialled a new place-based approach to thinking about, designing and delivering projects. It will take us away from the traditional model of delivering projects as ‘pieces’ to a more holistic approach where the whole ‘place’ is considered, driven by a community vision for each suburb.
Better Places gives the community greater ownership of their neighbourhoods by encouraging them to be more actively involved in the direction their suburb is heading. It will also streamline Council’s processes resulting in projects that are delivered quicker and are in line with community expectations from the outset.
Laverton is the first suburb to experience the Better Places model with the future Vision, Principles and Place Guide.
The Place Guide was endorsed by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 8 September.
