Brimbank Council has three community infrastructure-related plans of which only one is currently covered by the existing Community Services and Infrastructure Planning (Major Policy).

What is being proposed?

We want to cover and provide strategic direction to all of Council’s existing community infrastructure plans by incorporating them into the Community Services and Infrastructure Planning (Major Policy).

The proposed Draft Community Services and Infrastructure Planning (Major Policy) 2021 includes the following changes:

  • Addition of sport and recreation facilities in the policy scope to enable it to cover Brimbank’s Sports Facility Development Plan and Indoor Sports Facilities Feasibility Study.
  • Minor updates and consolidation for Policy aims, objectives and definitions to cover added plans.
  • Updated guiding principles.
  • Inclusion of high level framework for assessing community infrastructure needs.
  • Updated related Council Policy and Strategy.

Why are we proposing these changes?

  • To provide Council with a consistent, responsive and evidence-based approach to its planning and delivery of local, connected and sustainable community services and facilities.
  • To build and support an inclusive, healthy and resilient community.
  • To develop and maintain a network of quality, flexible and responsive community services and infrastructure designed and operated to meet the diverse needs of the communities of Brimbank.
  • To apply an evidence-based planning approach to understand universal needs and demands.
  • To address specific areas of disadvantage and inequity.
