Townsville City Plan Performance Indicators
The Townsville City Plan sets out the 25-year vision for how the city should grow to meet the social, environmental, and economic needs of the future. It strikes a balance between encouraging Townsville’s continued growth while protecting our unique lifestyle.
While the Townsville City Plan provides the vision for the city, we need to understand what progress is being made towards achieving that vision. This project provides a set of Performance Indicators which assess how effectively Council’s land use and development vision is being realised. It will help Council to better understand and evaluate the implementation of the Townsville City Plan over time.
The Townsville City Plan Performance Indicators are organised around the four policy themes of the Townsville City Plan’s strategic framework:
- Shaping Townsville,
- a strong and connected community;
- an environmentally sustainable future; and
- sustaining economic growth.
Measuring performance on an annual basis using these four themes will contribute to a better understanding of the effectiveness of these policies. Publication of reports from the Townsville City Plan Performance Indicators project will occur annually, after the end of the financial year.
The first annual report, Townsville City Plan Performance Indicators 2020 (a summary report), presents key information relating to each of the 12 indicators.
The Townsville City Plan Performance Indicators Project Technical Report (February 2021) provides detailed information relating to each of the 12 indicators and the methods of analysis.
