Smart Cities Staff Consultation

Consultation has concluded

Randwick City Council has prepared a Draft Smart City Strategy which provides a roadmap for how Council will respond to and take advantage of technological changes to address local challenges and improve service delivery.

Randwick City Council defines a smart city as:

A City that puts people first by using smart processes, data and technology to make advancements in liveability, sustainability and economic prosperity.

Council is committed to involving staff in the development of the Strategy. Between March and May 2018, we ran a preliminary community consultation to inform the Smart City Strategy, including a staff survey and four staff workshops.

Overall, staff were very supportive of Council’s initiative to develop a Smart City Strategy and use smart technology to improve the way we work and to address local problems. The vision, principles, objectives within the Draft Strategy have been shaped by the preliminary consultation. Many ideas were raised and these have been included in the Strategy for further investigation.

The Draft Smart City Strategy is on public exhibition from Wednesday 26 September to Tuesday 23 October 2018 and staff comments on the Draft Strategy are welcome.
