Advocacy Priorities 2022-2023

Council relies on all levels of government to help provide the infrastructure and services that our community needs. We advocate to the government to fund these priorities.

A growing community that’s shaping Victoria

We are one of the fastest growing municipalities in the state- projections show our population will grow by 60% in 2040. This exceptional growth poses challenges and opportunities. ABS figures show the City is the fifth most disadvantaged metropolitan municipality in Victoria.

We seek Victorian government co-investment in 19 key initiatives across seven integrated economic domains:

  • Infrastructure and Community Services
  • Employment 
  • Public Transport
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Affordable Housing
  • Roads
  • Environmental Sustainability

Investment in these areas will create and enhance conditions for economic growth, liveability and sustainability benefitting our rapidly expanding, diverse population.
