Delos Delta worked with the City of Stonnington to develop their Smart City Strategic Framework: Enabling Future Stonnington.
The focus of the Framework is to build practices, principles, skills, and engagement to shape and inform all future strategies in Stonnington – not just those related to technology. It enables a greater balance across social, economic, and environmental outcomes to drive a more prosperous and vibrant city.
“At its core, the City of Stonnington’s smart city aspirations are driven by the underlying motivation to engage with our community, and deliver the highest quality services and experiences.” – Smart Strategic Framework
The Framework brings together a range of technologies, concepts, ideas, and modernisations including:
- The Internet of Things (IoT)
- Digital Democracy
The Framework aligned key strategies, policies, and plans with the Community Vision 2040 and Council Plan 2021-2025. From here, six smart city strategic pillars were developed to enable a future of:
- Collaborative communications and partnership
- Connected communities and identity
- Enhanced council services and customer experiences
- Vibrant places and character
- Thriving economic innovation and businesses
- Visionary people and leadership
With a number of smart city initiatives already in place in the City of Stonnington, such as smart lighting, smart parking, free wi-fi, and digital literacy programs, a strong foundation has already been set for future priorities and opportunities for the City and community.
