Great village and city experience

We are a city of connected, distinct and vibrant villages.

We live in a city that provides recreational, social and cultural opportunities for all ages through:

  • services that are prompt, efficient and respond to community interests.
  • activities that bring the community and businesses together to celebrate the city's diversity.
  • residents having a say on the look and feel of their village.
  • sound and resilient infrastructure that supports the city's aspirations.

Performance indicators

The performance indicators for this priority are:

  • community satisfaction with levels of service maintained across all groups of activities provided by the Council.
  • stakeholder satisfaction with the village programme maintained.
