Brimbank council is calling on the community to have a say on what Brimbank should look like in 2040.

After releasing its draft Brimbank Community Vision 2040 recently, the council is now looking for community feedback on the next two decades of changes to their local area.

Mayor Margaret Giudice said the vision had been developed with significant input from community members and other stakeholders. “More than 1000 people and 20 organisations have already shared their ideas and hopes for Brimbank to help us create this vision,” Cr Giudice said.

“Brimbank is growing and changing. By 2041, we expect Brimbank’s population to grow to 230,000 – that’s another 25,000 people.

“This growth will place more demands on transport, the environment, our economy and our community.

“This is a plan for council, partner organisations and the community to work together so that the Brimbank we live in 20 years from now is a place we can all be proud of.”

The draft document, which is open for community comment at brimbank.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay until June 6, outlines a vision of health, innovation and safety.

“In 2040, the Brimbank community will be healthy, safe and united through a sense of belonging and pride,” the draft document states.
