We invite you to have your say on the Proposed Community Plan Action Plan 2024-25, which is our annual supplement to the Community Plan 2021-25.

The Proposed Community Plan Action Plan outlines 59 key actions for delivery over the next financial year, on our path towards achieving the Community Plan 2021-25 and ultimately our Whittlesea 2040 goals. These goals are for a Connected Community, Liveable Neighbourhoods, a Strong Local Economy, a Sustainable Environment and a High-Performing Organisation.
