Smart City Strategy

Consultation has concluded

Randwick City Council is seeking your feedback on our Draft Smart City Strategy. The draft strategy provides Council with a road map for how we 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.

The Strategy recognises Council’s strengths as a leader in technical innovation and sets the direction for smart city action for the next ten years.

The Draft Strategy has been developed following a preliminary community consultation in March this year, where we sought feedback on the community's priorities for smart city innovation. To do this, residents were invited to complete a survey or attend a workshop. You can read more about the outcomes of the consultation in the Smart City Strategy Engagement Report.

    Wireless networks (like Wi-Fi), sensors, real time information, online services, mobile applications, big data collection and analysis, innovation programs, citizen-centric design, and digital connectivity are all hallmarks of smart cities.

    Above all, a smart city puts people at the centre, using technology to improve liveability, economic development, and sustainability. It is local community priorities that will shape our smart city Strategy, so your ideas and views are paramount.
