Place Plans

The City of Vincent Town Centre Place Plans have been developed as a set of ‘place-based’ strategic documents to guide the direction of funding and resources committed to each of the City’s town centres. The Place Plans list the implementation schedule for all of the major initiatives being undertaken and these initiatives are determined in collaboration with each Town Team and their strategic Action Plans for each town centre.
