Planning for our future – a shared vision

Summary

Who do we want to be in 2040? 

Who do we want to be in 2040? Brimbank Council has worked with people from across Brimbank to develop a shared vision for the community we want to be in 2040.

The result is the Draft Brimbank Community Vision 2040 which Council this week endorsed for public comment and feedback.

Brimbank Mayor Cr Margaret Giudice said the vision had been developed with significant input from community members and other stakeholders – and invited community feedback on it.

“More than 1,000 people and 20 organisations have already shared their ideas and hopes for Brimbank to help us create this vision.

“Brimbank is growing and changing. By 2041, we expect Brimbank’s population to grow to 230,000 – that’s another 25,000 people.

“This growth will place more demands on transport, the environment, our economy and our community.

“This is a plan for Council, partner organisations, and the community to work together so that the Brimbank we live in 20 years from now is a place we can all be proud of,” Cr Giudice said.

The draft document outlines key directions and community aspirations around the themes of people, place and prosperity. It also sets out a shared vision for the Brimbank community in 2040:

In 2040, the Brimbank community will be healthy, safe and united through a sense of belonging and pride. Our city will be resilient, innovative and vibrant and our people will be empowered through opportunity. The environment will be protected and enhanced and Brimbank’s neighbourhoods will offer a quality lifestyle for everyone.
