In August, we asked you what you like most about where you live and what you'd like to see more of in your local area. We want to ensure we have captured everything and that this is still how you feel.
This information will inform the development of the 2023/24 Budget, the 2023/24 Community Plan Action Plan as well as other key plans and strategies we're working on.
City of Whittlesea’s Community Plan 2021-2025 is Council’s main medium-term strategic planning document. It expands on the long-term 20-year community vision, Whittlesea 2040: A place for all, to include key outcome priorities, services, and initiatives over the next four years. It plays a central role in Council’s overall strategic planning and reporting framework.
Each year Council develops a Community Plan Action Plan (CPAP) which is an annual supplement to the Community Plan 2021-25. This action plan outlines the key actions to be completed over the next financial year to build towards achieving the Community Plan 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.
Similarly, each year the City of Whittlesea releases an annual Budget that sets a financially responsible path forward for the organisation to continue to deliver critical investment in services and key infrastructure to support our rapidly growing community. The budget is formed to align to our long-term financial plan which balances our current spending on projects and services for the community and strengthens our long-term financial sustainability.
For 2023/24 Council is committed to providing genuine opportunities for our community to share what matters most to them and help shape the CPAP as well as the Budget and have a say on how funds are directed.
How can you influence Council's key plans and strategies.
The municipality is a large and diverse area that is divided into 6 districts with each having their own different priorities. In August this year we consulted with community to capture the priorities for each of the 6 districts.
We want to ensure that what we've captured is accurate. Select the area where you live on the map below to see the priorities we've captured. You can agree or disagree that what we've captured is accurate and there is also space for you to add anything we might have missed.
