‘Place planning’ is a strategic approach to planning, designing, and managing the physical infrastructure and services around us. A ‘place plan’ establishes a vision for the area and helps allow our places to grow incrementally over time, in line with the needs of our community.
Our place planning framework is called ‘My Place’; it focuses on working with the community to develop plans for our places grounded in our residents’ connection to local villages and neighborhoods. Several studies and broader strategies inform these plans too.
Ultimately My Place will help make our towns and villages great places – enjoyable, vibrant, safe, inclusive, and sustainable - now and in the future.
Our first place plan is My Place: Avalon Beach.
