Smart City Strategy

Townsville is aspiring to become Australia’s most liveable and prosperous regional city in Australia. We want to do this by using technology to be innovative, responsive and an open city under a plan being considered by Council.

Townsville City Council is developing a Smart City Strategy to use and share data and technology to build on the city’s existing strengths and develop a modern economy to create the jobs and industries of tomorrow.  

Council wants to ensure that any investment in Smart Cities best meets the community’s needs and maximises economic and lifestyle opportunities for the city.

The draft strategy document was available for public comment between 11 April and 4 May 2018, the feedback received from the community is currently being reviewed and considered by council.

Please note that submissions for this community consultation have now closed.

Townsville City Council voted on Tuesday 23 October, 2018 to implement the Smart Townsville Community Partnership.
