About the Draft Budget

The budget is important because it shapes the finances and delivery of services and priorities for our community.

It underpins our city’s recovery efforts through COVID-19, while also delivering much-needed services and programs.

Top priorities for the year ahead include:

  • improving parks, roads and sporting facilities
  • implementing the Brimbank Climate Emergency Plan
  • supporting our community with a number of mental health and wellbeing initiative, and
  • business support initiatives that promote economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The total draft budget for 2022-23 is $286.8 million with a total operating expenditure of $225.4 million including $61.4 million on capital works projects.

Introducing Brimbank's Draft Budget 2022-23 with Mayor, Cr Jasmine Nguyen

  • How was the draft budget developed?

    Council and community worked together to prepare the Council Plan 2021-2025. The Council Plan guides service delivery and capital expenditure over the term of this Council.

    The community is also regularly consulted on policies and strategies that inform how Council will allocate resources. With this information, Council has prepared this year’s draft budget.
