Build a better Brimbank

Residents are being asked to share their vision for the area in 2030 by taking part in an online survey by July 1.

They can also share their hopes, dreams and aspirations across 12 areas of council operations – including parks and gardens, sports and recreation and arts and culture – at a special listening post in St Albans on July 2, from 10.30am to 12.30pm, to help inform the update of Brimbank’s Community plan (2009-2030).

The post will be run at the corner of Main Road East and St Albans Road, St Albans. The survey can be found at www.brimbank.vic.gov.au

Forums will also be held in August, with dates on the council’s website.
