Let’s get to work – creating a better future

Summary

Council and stakeholders will work together to deliver a raft of initiatives over the next three years to position Brimbank for future success – under the Brimbank Community Vision Collaboration 2018-21.

Brimbank Mayor Cr Lucinda Congreve said the Vision Collaboration outlined steps that Council and partners would take towards achieving the goals of the Brimbank Community Vision 2040 – which Council adopted in September this year.

“Together with representatives from across our community, Council has developed a shared vision for the community we want to be in 2040.

“The Vision Collaboration contains 84 initiatives – under the themes of People, Place and Prosperity – which Council will deliver in conjunction with partner organisations, other levels of government, and the community.

“By working in partnership we want to ensure that the Brimbank we live in 20 years from now is a place we can all be proud of.

“We know that our community is growing and changing, with another 25,000 people to call Brimbank home by 2041.

“The work that we do now will be critical in ensuring that we can achieve our vision for the type of community we want to be in 2040,” Cr Congreve said.

Council adopted the Brimbank Community Vision Collaboration 2018-21 at its December 2018 Ordinary Council Meeting.

The Brimbank Community Vision 2040 sets out a shared vision for the Brimbank community in 2040:

By 2040, the Brimbank community will be healthy and safe and we will be united through a sense of belonging and pride. Our city will be inclusive, resilient, innovative and vibrant and our people will share equally in the City's prosperity and opportunity. The environment will be protected and enhanced and Brimbank’s diverse neighbourhoods and housing will offer something for everyone.

It also includes 10 key directions and community aspirations around: Healthy Lifestyles, Services and Facilities, Culture and Diversity, Safety, Getting Around, Public Spaces, Environment, Education and Employment, Local Economy, and Housing.

Both the Community Vision and Vision Collaboration were developed following extensive consultation with partner organisations and the broader community.
