Smart Cities

Smart technology interacts with our lives every single day with a focus of making life easier and more connected. It represents a step forward for the entire Waverley community, creating a more seamless experience through digital access to information, enhanced service delivery for customers and staff, management efficiencies through linked systems, physical improvements to public spaces, and enabling job growth in relation to innovation.

Smart technology has matured to a level that it has begun extending from our personal lives and homes into our public spaces and services with smart initiatives being implemented in most local communities across Australia.

Smart Waverley

Council recognises the future is increasingly digital and is committed to transitioning the community into the future of smart technology. Waverley Council has already delivered a range of Smart City related projects since 2015 and since then, multiple teams across Council have contributed significantly to development of the Smart Waverley Strategy 2023. This strategy sets the direction for a smarter more connected community. The strategy was awarded finalist status by the Smart Cities Council of Australia and New Zealand at their annual awards during Smart City Week in 2019.

Priorities

The Smart Waverley Program involves the implementation of actions from the strategy. Actions have been divided into 6 key priority areas. Responsibility of delivery belongs to respective teams across the organisation.
