A smart city is an urban development vision to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IoT) technology in a secure fashion to manage assets.

The City is working in partnership with the local businesses, education institutions and the broader community to develop a Smart Cities Strategy. This will provide strategic direction so the local community and businesses (across all industry sectors) can maximise the benefits from the growth of online and digital activity and other new communication infrastructure and technologies.

On 16 November the City hosted an Explorations Workshop that informed the attached Outputs Report. The workshop was attended by approx. 50 participants representing a range of community and business interests throughout the City of Busselton. The group identified high priority issues that can be resolved within the strategy. This workshop followed an informative and inspiring breakfast presentation by Bernard Salt who described Busselton as an entrepreneurial hotspot as a result of greater connectivity and projected population growth driven by the ‘e-change’ movement.

On 27 February 2018 the top five issues identified at the workshop will be further explored and strategically planned at the Hackathon.
