Brimbank council is looking to the future and it wants resident to have their say.

As part of its planning, the council is devising a Brimbank Community Plan 2040 to address the challenges and opportunities facing Brimbank in the coming 20 years.

Brimbank mayor Margaret Giudice said the Brimbank Community Plan would be a shared vision of the community, service providers and the council.

“There is so much that we love about Brimbank today, such as our rich cultural diversity, indigenous heritage and our proud industrial history,” Cr Giudice said.

“The Brimbank Community Plan 2040 is an opportunity to consider our community’s shared long-term goals.

“As we consider what type of place we want Brimbank to be in 2040, we should reflect on the things that we currently value about Brimbank.”

Community members – including residents, traders, land owners and service providers – are being invited to provide input online or by attending a community workshop.

“This workshop will provide a chance for residents, traders and other community members to collaborate and share ideas about Brimbank’s future,”
Cr Giudice said.

The workshop will be held at the Sunshine Convention Centre, 460 Ballarat Road, Sunshine, on Thursday, February 15. RSVP at brimbank.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay. Those interested can also contribute online until February 25 via the same website.
