Positive Ageing Strategy

This initiative comes from our Community Plan 2028 and seeks the integration of positive ageing as an important outcome for the future.

The strategy has been prepared to guide the future planning and provision of infrastructure, services, projects and programs to facilitate positive ageing in the City of Onkaparinga.

While our city is widely recognised as a youthful city, the proportion of our population aged over 65 will increase by 26per cent to 22,800 by 2014 and to 38,000 people by 2021. The greatest proportional increase will be in the group aged 85 and over with a 60per cent increase to 3300 people by 2021.
