Media Release - A beautiful, thriving, healthy and connected city starts with a plan!

A beautiful, thriving, healthy and connected city are the key aspirations of Brimbank Council’s plan for the municipality over the next four years.

The Together We are Brimbank plan, which identifies the community’s hopes and priorities and also outlines how Council will work to achieve a vision of a transformed Brimbank, was adopted at Brimbank Council’s meeting on 19 October.

Council has engaged with the community to inform the development of the plan and about the draft plan, which has resulted in more than 300responses.

The final Plan paves the way to achieve Council’s long-term Community Vision 2040, through our four-year Council Vision and Plan and the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing plan.

The plan aims to transform Brimbank by focusing on four key strategic directions:

  • People and Community – a welcoming, safe and supported community 
  • Places and Spaces – Liveable and connected neighbourhoods that support healthy and sustainable futures
  • Opportunity and Prosperity – A future focused, transforming city where all have opportunities to learn and earn
  • Leadership and Governance – a high performing organisation that enacts the vision and decision of Council through quality and innovative services.

Council’s focus will be directed on projects and services that support mental and physical health, inclusion, protecting the local the environment, education and employment.
