Share to Shape Stakeholder and Community Engagement

CITY OF PERTH | Perth, WA

THE
PLACE

As the largest and most extensive community engagement exercise ever undertaken by the City of Perth, Share to Shape was a catalyst project which sought to establish a new dialogue between the City and its citizens and create a more inclusive and engaged community. Informing the City’s Strategic Community Plan and City Planning Strategy, Element lead all facets of stakeholder and community engagement strategy and implementation which covered newly established LGA boundaries as well as the Capital City Act.

OUR
ROLE

Element developed and delivered the multi-faceted engagement program, resulting in unprecedented and representative participation by business, community and residents. This included:

  • Engagement strategy incorporating community outreach, digital and online, stakeholder roundtables and more traditional workshops.
  • Conceptualisation and delivery of Thought Leaders for the city across a range of topics – advocates to broaden the scope of the discussion.
  • Synthesis, analysis and interpretation of technical reporting and interpretation of previous planning and engagement strategies.
  • Analysis of large quantitative and qualitative data sets, utilising innovative reporting software and data evaluation and representation techniques.
  • Establishment of the City’s inaugural Citizens Advisory Committee, which used the data sets to collaboratively design and develop the Strategic Community Plan.

OUTCOMES

The bespoke campaign of digital, face to face and pop up engagement generated over 10,000 ideas, over a total of 40 days, from a more than 1945 participants in the midst of the state election. Over 20 community and stakeholder engagement sessions, including themed workshops, roundtable sessions and community workshops were delivered across the city covering economy, the environment, culture, movement and city life. The Share to Shape project has set a new benchmark for engagement internally for the City and is guiding subsequent engagement for the City Planning Strategy, currently underway.
