Play the game to help Plan Brimbank

Summary

Brimbank residents, business owners, property owners, workers and visitors are invited to play a fun interactive game designed to help determine their land use and development priorities to inform the future of Brimbank.

The game – Plan Brimbank – is designed to encourage community feedback across a number of broad themes to inform the review of the Brimbank Planning Scheme.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Margaret Giudice said the community could help shape a more liveable Brimbank by playing the interactive game.

“The Plan Brimbank game has been designed to help our community tell us their land use and planning priorities, through the use of simple comparisons that help create a final ranked list of priorities.

“We’re offering a fun and simple way to provide feedback, because we want to make sure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to have their say on a subject that can be complex.

“The game has also been translated into six languages to encourage widespread engagement across our diverse community.

“The game explores priorities under the themes of public spaces and the environment, transport, planning for housing and streets, and shopping precincts.

“This information will tell Council what the most important issues are for our community and will help shape the future of Brimbank.

“By playing Plan Brimbank, you will be helping to shape the future of our City, and having a bit of fun as well,” Cr Giudice said.

The information gathered will inform the review of the Brimbank Planning Scheme review, which guides land use planning and development in Brimbank.

The game will be live until Monday 14 May 2018.

Under the Planning and Environment Act 1987, all councils are required to review their planning scheme within one year of the adoption of a new Council Plan.
