The Rhodes Peninsula Place Committee is an action oriented, representative group of organisations and stakeholders working in partnership to implement strategic plans for the Rhodes Peninsula

The purpose of the Place Committee is to be actively involved in the delivery of actions included in the Rhodes Peninsula Place Plan. This involves contributing through partnerships, mentoring, resourcing and project working groups, and where appropriate leading project delivery. The committee’s main objectives are to:

  • Involve stakeholders in the development of the Rhodes Peninsula as a great place to live, work and play
  • Ensure an action oriented and partnership approach to implementation.

Background

The Rhodes Peninsula Place Plan provides a holistic and integrated framework for action in the next 5 years as well as longer term strategic directions. The successful delivery of the Plan relies on the continued collaborative efforts between local residents, key stakeholders, government and non government agencies and the City of Canada Bay.

The Place Plan identifies and analyses the things that make Rhodes and Liberty Grove a great place to live, both now and in the future. Community members have spoken about the Peninsula as a:

  • vibrant, interesting and dynamic community
  • place with quality open space and a range of community facilities
  • connected area with good access to jobs, services and infrastructure
  • riverfront community that respects its unique setting.

In understanding what ‘place’ means for its residents, the development of this Plan has considered place making and community building leading practice. This research has been applied, grounded and adapted to the unique circumstances of the Rhodes Peninsula through a comprehensive process of community engagement involving a range of stakeholders including community members, businesses, local community organisations, State Government and the City of Canada Bay.

The Place Plan is as an ‘evolving’ document recognizing that priorities may change as the area continues to grow and develop. In response to this regular updates with key stakeholders will be held to ensure that the Place Plan priorities remain relevant and responsive. Specific actions within the Place Plan are focussed on the Next 5 Years; beyond this timeframe Strategic Directions have been identified. This is in anticipation of continued significant changes in the Peninsula to the community, as we have seen over the last 5 year period.

The Place Committee will have a critical role in the delivery of actions included in the Rhodes Peninsula Place Plan. Members will contribute through leading projects to be delivered, actively participating as partners, mentoring other organisations and community groups and providing resourcing.

Bring resources and sustainability to the community and Place Plan.
