  • Outcomes

    The key performance indicators have been updated following community consultation and were endorsed at the Council Meeting in September 2022.

    The changes will result in more comprehensive measurement and reporting aligned to community and organisational needs. There has been a number of changes made to the original indicators, and new indicators have also been added, taking the number of indicators from 17 to 21. These include measures for mental health, access to open space and carbon emissions.


In 2018, Council endorsed Whittlesea 2040: A place for all (“W2040”) as community and Council’s shared vision for the City of Whittlesea. In order to measure the success of reaching the 2040 vision we developed 17 strategic indicators which have formed the basis of Council’s reporting framework.

The Community Plan 2021-2025 states we will update the W2040 indicators and measures during the life of the Plan to:

  • Ensure W2040 indicators are aligned to the most recent community and organisational needs
  • Include indicators for the High-Performing Organisation goal which was introduced in 2019 and has been embedded into the Community Plan 2021-2025

These indicators are a critical measure for Council and enable us to strategically plan and prioritise our projects. We value our community's feedback and thoughts on the indicators and whether we've got them right.

You can see the proposed changes below and can let us know if you agree at the bottom of the page.
