Smart city opportunities
We’re exploring and embracing opportunities of smart city technology and innovation so that Manningham can be an even better place to live, work and play.
What is a smart city?
A smart city applies digital technology, data and innovative practices to improve liveability, sustainability, workability, collaboration and economic opportunities.
Smart city initiatives are changing community outcomes across Australia, enhancing local service delivery, citizen wellbeing, infrastructure effectiveness, and economic development.
Smart city opportunities for Manningham
In early 2020, we sought ideas and feedback from the Manningham community on smart city priorities. Following this and an assessment of best practice smart cities, a smart city opportunities paper was developed.
This paper outlines the opportunities for Manningham as well as the outcomes of the community engagement on smart cities. It was endorsed by Council at its meeting on 28 July 2020.
The opportunities are summarised in our Smart Cities Brochure 2020
We have already begun our smart city journey, with a range of initiatives underway, including smart cities – reinventing neighbourhoods at Jackson Court.
