Vision and strategy

Devonport will be a thriving and welcoming regional city living lightly by river and sea.

  • Strong, thriving and welcoming – Devonport is a regional leader with a strong economy.  It is a great place to live, work and play.
  • Valuing the past, caring for the present, embracing the future – We have been shaped by a rich cultural heritage and enthusiastically embrace present challenges and future opportunities.
  • Engaging with the world – We have an outward focus and send quality products and experiences to the world.  We welcome all to share our beautiful City and all it offers.
  • Living lightly by river and sea – We live lightly on our valued natural environment of clean rivers, waterways, beaches; rich agricultural land and coastal landscapes, so future generations can also enjoy this special place.

The Strategic Plan 2009-2030 (PDF, 18MB) outlines how Council plans to achieve its vision for Devonport to become a thriving and welcoming regional City living lightly by river and sea.

It was developed in conjunction with Council, the community and key stakeholders and the last review following the October 2022 Local Government elections.

The next review will begin following the next Local Government elections in October 2026.
