Federal Election 2022
Council is calling on the Commonwealth Government to support Council and its community and partners to deliver the services and programs that are needed right now, and to seize opportunities to deliver once-in-a-generation projects that will support our community for decades to come.
Our community is strong. But after a tumultuous two-year period enduring the pandemic and storm events of 2021, the health and wellbeing, and financial stability of our community and businesses now hangs in the balance.
Our residents and businesses have told us that social connection, emergency preparedness, business support, mental health and wellbeing are their biggest concerns moving into 2022 and beyond.
Our advocacy priorities align with this, and the objectives of Yarra Ranges’ 2021-25 Council Plan – a document our community has helped shape to enable our residents, local economy and businesses to survive and bounce back.
The projects listed below will be critical for our community as we recover, rebuild and reconnect.
By working with the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments, we can ensure Yarra Ranges is maintained as one of Victoria’s most loved places to live, work and visit, and a continues to contribute strongly to the state and national economies.
