Find out about the Strategic Community Plan 2017-2027 that strives to provide our residents city living offering a rural lifestyle with abundant opportunities for a diverse community.

Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale Strategic Community Plan

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale has released its Strategic Community Plan to guide decision making for the Shire over the next decade.

All Western Australian local governments are required to prepare a Strategic Community Plan for the future of their district identifying the community’s visions, aspirations, outcomes and priorities.

This Plan could not have been produced without the input of the local community. We are grateful to the community for their responses and especially those who took the time to provide input into the various components that informed the Plan including SJ 2050, SJ Real Choices and the Community Perceptions Survey.

The feedback from our community has shaped our new vision, ‘City living offering a rural lifestyle with abundant opportunities for a diverse community’. 

The Shire has set out four key objectives within this Plan which include:
