BRIGHTON Municipality is having its say on what the community will look like in 30 years from now.
Brighton Council is inviting local residents, businesses and visitors to share their thoughts about the future through an online survey. The survey is part of a project to develop a 2050 Vision for the Municipality.
“We appreciate the fact Brighton is home to an incredibly proud community with a strong sense of identity and optimism,” said Brighton Council general manager, James Dryburgh.
“Council wants to capture that passion and commitment through the online survey so we can hear directly from the community which will help us develop a new 30-year plan called 2050 Vision.
“2050 Vision will set out our collective hopes and goals for our community in coming decades, with a particular focus on the areas Council can deliver or influence.
“If we imagine how we would like Brighton to be in 2050, share it and document it, we will have a very clear chance of making it happen.”
The online survey, which takes less than 10 minutes to complete, is open until Friday, September 18.
Mr Dryburgh is encouraging everyone with a connection to the Municipality to have their say through the survey, which can be accessed through Brighton Council’s website.
“We want to capture as many voices as possible so we’re inviting parents and guardians to also encourage their children to complete the survey, or do it with them,” he said.
“After all, today’s children and young people will be the adults of 2050 so it’s enormously important that we hear what they want for their future.”
The online survey is part of a larger consultation process being run by the Council which will include workshopping with representatives of local businesses and organisations as well as other stakeholders later this year.
To gather more views the consultation team will be speaking one-on-one with stakeholders as well as attending forums.
2050 Vision will set out Brighton Municipality’s collective hopes and goals for our community in coming decades, with a particular focus on the areas Council can deliver or influence.
All the information collected will then form part of the 2050 Vision which will be shared with the community on the Council’s website before the end of the year.
