Living Darwin 2030 Strategic Plan, Northern Territory

City of Darwin’s 'Evolving Darwin Towards 2020 Strategic Plan' established the vision and goals that have guided what the City of Darwin does to create a better city. 

The current plan finishes in 2020 and they are now planning for the future; aiming to establish a plan that will guide services, programs and projects through to 2030.

The Approach

democracyCo supported the City of Darwin during May 2018 to undertake their first deliberative process – a summit comprising of 80 Darwin residents to explore what their future looks like. The group included people of all ages, and from across all postcodes of Darwin.
The group collectively wrote a community report which was endorsed by Council, and which is forming the basis for the Strategic Plan which is currently being finalised by Council.
