Since 2007, City of Gold Coast (City) together with the community, has been planning the future of our city for the next 30 years through an exercise called 'Bold Future'.
The Bold Future project, winner of three Australian Business Awards, developed a shared vision for Gold Coast City and is a whole of city vision based and crafted from extensive community consultation with more than 11,000 local people.
The Corporate Plan 2009-14 is the City's key strategic planning document which builds on this community consultation undertaken through the Bold Future project and delivers the first five years of the Bold Future Vision. The identified actions also form the basis of our annual Operational Plan and budget.
The Corporate Plan sets out what we, on behalf of the community, intend to undertake in support of the six key focus priorities identified in Bold Future:
- A city leading by example
- A city loved for its green, gold and blue
- A city connecting people and places
- A safe city where everyone belongs
- A city with a thriving economy
- A city shaped by clever design
In addition, the Corporate Plan contains an additional internal focus area of corporate governance, organisational capability and customer contact.
