Project description

The City of Gold Coast was one of the early adopters in applying the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities’ Transition Planning Process to develop a water sensitive city vision and transition strategy. The project involved a series of collaborative workshops with 76 leaders and strategic thinkers in the Gold Coast region across water, planning, environment, development and other related sectors.

The purpose of the project was to provide a framework for orienting and coordinating strategic action across the many different stakeholders who will need to collaborate for the Gold Coast’s envisioned water future to be achieved. The project produced a water sensitive vision and transition strategy for the Gold Coast, which includes an historical water story for the region, a benchmark of current water sensitive performance, a shared 50-year vision for a water sensitive Gold Coast, and a number of strategies and actions that will need to be undertaken to deliver the vision.
