This report presents the outcomes of a local-scale participatory process conducted in Elwood, a bayside suburb of Melbourne, to develop a community-driven future vision for their suburb and pathways for advancing towards it. The process centred on the concept of water sensitivity, an approach that centres on urban water management enhancing the liveability, sustainability and resilience of a city. It has two distinct aims:

  1. develop a vision and strategies for guiding initiatives towards achieving the vision; and
  2. catalyse momentum and commitment amongst community champions for driving change towards the vision.
