As Yarra Ranges continues to grow and evolve, the need for new infrastructure, upgraded facilities and more services also increases.  We cannot deliver on these requirements alone. 

To ensure the needs of our community are understood and heard, Council advocates to all levels of government, often working in partnership with local representatives, associations and other like-minded councils.

Advocacy can take the form of direct lobbying, making a submission, meeting with key decision makers, supporting community campaigns or executing media strategies, all designed to influence and inform those with political or economic power.

Our advocacy efforts generate support for projects and policies to deliver the social, health, cultural, infrastructure, education and transport services that our community deserves.
