Council Plan

Read on +
Council has adopted the 2017-2021 Council Plan after considerable community consultation and a consideration of submissions that included more than 1,000 local people and businesses from every part of Darebin.

Council Plan 2017-2021

The Council Plan articulates the vision, mission and goals for the four-year council term.  For the first time, Council has also developed a detailed Action Plan that will be renewed every year.

The Plan begins with the challenges that our city and community face currently.  It then recognizes that these and other issues will only grow in influence and emerge as significant challenges for us all in the future.  For example, the Plan explains how we will deal with rapid population growth and increasing traffic congestion by advocating for better public transport, better roads and by building safer cycling and pedestrian infrastructure.
