  • We are also keeping our proposed fees and charges changes below the rate of inflation.
  • We are building a better Manningham with Council’s extensive capital works program of $65.2 million. The Capital Works Program will maintain and enhance Council’s $2 billion of community assets.
  • We are taking actionwith a number of new key operating initiatives in priority areas including delivering on:
    • our Climate Emergency Action Plan,
    • waste management initiatives such as Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill,
    • supporting community led initiatives through our extensive community grants program,
    • support for local business and employment including support for business hubs and co-working spaces,
    • improved transport,
    • advocacy for youth mental health services, and
    • an increase in the operating hours of our Doncaster and The Pines libraries to meet demand.
  • We are planning for our future by allocating $50 million over the next 10 years for major community facilities, strategically unlocking the potential of our assets to improve our financial sustainability, working to understand our water and flood management challenges and delivering on our Liveable City Strategy to create vibrant activity centres and community places.
