Shaping Brimbank by getting involved

Brimbank Mayor Cr Ranka Rasic is inviting community to get involved in Shaping Brimbank by taking part in community engagement activities that will inform the development of the Council Plan 2021-2025.

The 2021-2025 Council Plan is currently being developed and community engagement is a key component in helping to determine the delivery priorities for the Council over the next four years.

As part of the engagement, Council is also seeking community feedback on the existing long term 20 year community vision and the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan.

Community engagement on the Council Plan will include:

  • reply paid postcards delivered across the municipality to encourage community members to share their comments
  • a number of targeted workshops to gain more detailed community insights and
  • online feedback at yoursay.brimbank.vic.gov.au/shapingbrimbank

Community members are encouraged to get involved during the engagement period which runs until Sunday 16 May 2021.

The draft vision of the draft Council Plan is “A transformed Brimbank that is beautiful, thriving, healthy and connected.”

The four draft strategic directions of the document are:

  • Places and Spaces
  • Opportunity and Prosperity
  • People and Community
  • Leadership and Governance

Following the engagement activities and using the feedback from community, Council will develop a draft Council Plan and related documents that will be considered by the Council later this year for adoption and implementation.
