Manningham Mayor, Cr Diedre Diamante said Council would invest in projects that support and benefit the diverse community and ensure the organisation was well placed to deliver for future generations.

“We’re a financially sustainable Council, committed to spending your rates wisely and providing community services, facilities and programs that suit your needs. To do this, we need to know what’s important to you.

“Our current budget is delivering a $65.17 million capital works program and more than 100 services for our community, and now it’s time to prepare for the next financial year. I strongly encourage residents to take part in the survey before it closes.”

Through the Budget and 10 Year Financial Plan Council is committed to:

  • Building a better Manningham by creating, upgrading and maintaining infrastructure such as roads, drains, bridges, footpaths, cycleways and sporting and community facilities.
  • Planning our future by ensuring facilities deliver on the needs of our community, unlocking the potential of our assets to improve financial sustainability, developing ways to protect public and private property through flood management and investing in innovation.
  • Taking action to protect our environment through climate change mitigation, biodiversity, reducing waste to landfill and environmentally sustainable designs.

Community survey feedback will contribute to the Draft 2023/24 Budget and 10 Year Financial Plan to be endorsed for community consultation at the 30 May 2023 Council Meeting

The final version will be considered by Council on 27 June 2023.
