Earlier this year our community was invited to share their hopes and priorities for Brimbank through the Shaping Brimbank engagement process.

Based on what we heard we have developed our Together We are Brimbank Plan which includes the Community Vision 2040, Council Plan 2021-2025 and Municipal Health and Wellbeing plan.

You're invited to provide feedback about the draft Together We are Brimbank plan and the supporting draft Annual Action Plan 2021-2022.

There is a survey for you to fill out or you can attend an online information session or mail a response.

The Together We are Brimbank Plan incorporates our community’s key aspirations and outlines how Council will work to achieve the joint vision of a transformed Brimbank.

It paves the way to achieve our long term Community Vision 2040 through our four-year Council Vision and Plan and the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan.

It outlines the practical strategies that Council will take to achieve our community’s aspirations. Together We Are Brimbank will be our road map for making Brimbank an even better place to live, work and play.

The Community Vision describes the community's long-term vision and priorities for the next 19 years.

“By 2040, the Brimbank community will be healthy and safe and we will be united through a sense of belonging and pride. Our City will be inclusive, resilient, innovative and vibrant and our people will share equally in the City’s prosperity and opportunity. The environment and heritage will be protected and enhanced and Brimbank’s diverse neighbourhoods and housing will offer something for everyone.”

The Council Plan is a medium-term strategic plan that will guide Council’s work over the next four years. Council has developed a vision:

A transformed Brimbank that is beautiful, thriving, healthy and connected”

Recognises the key role of Council in improving the health and wellbeing of people in their municipality.

Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan priorities

Four key Strategic Directions and will guide our work over the next four years.

People and Community

People and Community are the heart of Brimbank. Council will continue to support the mental and physical wellbeing of our community, and help people to come together by sharing their rich diversity. Artistic and social opportunities will also be ways to bring our community together.

People and Community: A welcoming, safe and supported community – an inclusive place for all.

Places and Spaces

Places and Spaces are important for our wellbeing and a sustainable future.Our community strongly values neighbourhoods that are green, where they can connect with others, and access facilities and services.Together We are Brimbank looks for opportunities to enhance our places and spaces for current and future generations.

Liveable and connected neighbourhoods that support healthy and sustainable futures – a green place for all.

Opportunity and Prosperity

Opportunity and Prosperity are at the forefront of our thinking when we consider the transformation of Brimbank.

Major infrastructure development has potential to bring lasting positive change to our community. Council recognises the need to leverage this development to achieve a vision that will deliver increased jobs, housing and liveability for our community. As we look to the future, we will focus on all having opportunities to learn and earn.

A future focused, transforming city where all have opportunities to learn and earn – a prosperous place for all.

Leadership and Governance

Leadership and Governance are integral to a high performing organisation. Decisions and the vision of Council will be delivered through quality and innovative services that respond to the diverse needs of our community. This strategic direction focuses on creating a fairer place for all.

A high performing organisation that enacts the vision and decisions of Council through the delivery of quality and innovative services – A fairer place for all.

Tell us what you think about the Draft Plan

Legislative requirement

The Local Government Act 2020 requires Council’s to have adopted both a Community Vision and Council Plan by 31 October 2021.

In line with the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, Councils are also required to renew their Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan every four years.

The draft Together we are Brimbank brings these three key strategic documents into a single integrated plan, whilst addressing the associated legislative requirements.
