Advocacy Priorities

The City of Whittlesea and our community is growing fast. Home to 244,124 residents in 2023, our population is expected to increase almost 50% to 360,692 by 2041. To keep up with this rapid population growth, we need support from both State and Federal government. It is essential that the City of Whittlesea keep the needs of our growing community in mind in all future strategic planning activities, while advocating for State and Federal government to do the same. This will ensure our community remains connected through vital road and public transport infrastructure, and are able to access essential services including health, education and employment opportunities close to home.
