Hobsons Bay is changing faster than many of us realise. While change can be exciting and bring great benefits it can also bring along many challenges and risks leaving some people isolated and left behind.

How can we as a community keep what is great about Hobsons Bay while embracing the benefits of change – all the while ensuring all of our community members are healthy, happy, included and engaged?

To help us in planning for the future, we are creating the first ever long term vision for Hobsons Bay called Hobsons Bay 2030, which will outline your vision for the future. It will cover what you think is important such as community health and wellbeing, planning and building, the local economy and job creation, the environment, sport and recreation and more – but that is up to you.

For everyone who lives, works and studies in Hobsons Bay, the Hobsons Bay 2030 will identify what the community wants for the future. We all need to contribute to creating and achieving the vision as it will guide all future Council policies, actions and advocacy until 2030.


The story so far...

The first stage of our community engagement activities has come to a close and we have taken all the ideas, stories and suggestions received and turned them into the phase 1 : consultation report. This was presented at the Community Workshops in August to help the community representatives understand what others have told us.

From this they then created the draft vision Hobsons Bay 2030 which was available for comment by the wider community from November 2016 - January 2017.

Our community representatives have now finalised Hobsons Bay 2030, considering all the community feedback and making any necessary changes. The final document will be available in February 2017, when it is presented to Council for endorsement.
