Forecasting community needs to plan for the future


The City is undertaking an independent, technical analysis of community needs to inform future planning and advocacy for facilities, programs, and infrastructure.

The analysis involves assessing usage of existing facilities and services, current and future trends, demographic analysis and comparison with other, similar local governments.

Information developed through the technical research approaches will be validated by information collected from the community who access and use facilities and services.

Two survey techniques are being used to collect data on community perspectives:

  • A random selection of residents across the City of Joondalup, and
  • Intercept/pop up surveys across a range of public spaces and facilities in the City of Joondalup

Using these survey techniques alongside technical data analysis means that the results of the project will be unbiased, reliable, and can be validated to better inform the City’s investment and advocacy around community services, facilities and infrastructure.
