Build it and they will come: Plan for community services and infrastructure

Summary

Have your say and help shape the future needs of community services and facilities across Brimbank.

Brimbank City Council is tackling community services and infrastructure needs head on with a Draft Community Services and Infrastructure Plan 2018-2038.

The robust plan sets out our goals for providing quality services and facilities in ways that can serve our community now and into the future.

Brimbank Mayor Cr Margaret Giudice said this is an important plan for Council, and that community members were invited to have their say on the types of services and infrastructure planned for Brimbank.

“Brimbank is evolving. It is a dynamic, bustling and growing community at the heart of Melbourne’s booming west.

“Council recognises the importance of being innovative and future focused as we respond to Brimbank’s changing community needs over the next 20 years.

“The plan will guide our decision making on future community infrastructure projects, funding requirements, advocacy efforts and partnership opportunities.

“It covers access to wide ranging community facilities and services that are modern and flexible including community health, education, meeting spaces, child care, libraries and arts and culture.

“This plan is vital for Brimbank and will ensure that our growing community is well serviced now and for future generations to come,” Cr Giudice said.

The draft strategy is open for community consultation for four weeks from 24 August to 21 September.

The community is invited to have their say at a Community Information Forum on Wednesday 12 September, 6.30-7.30pm at St Albans Community Centre (STACC), Princess Street, St Albans. RSVP at leisurefeedback@brimbank.vic.gov.au by Tuesday 11 September.
