The 2021–2025 Council Plan

Ongoing consultation

Valley and vines

Welcome to our first steps in developing the next Council plan for 2021 to 2025 together with you, the Yarra Ranges community. 

Here you will find information on what we are currently delivering, what the future challenges are that we face and how we might respond to them.

Be involved

Over the next few months we’ll be running surveys, workshops, listening to people and using all that we learn to create the plan.

If you‘d like to help, take the quick survey below and make sure your voice is heard!  We will contact you shortly and offer you opportunities to participate in engagement activities over the next 8 months. You can contribute as much or as little as you like. We will keep you informed and give you an opportunity to comment on the direction and content of the plan.


We know you value the connected communities, natural environment and sustainable economy which make life beyond compare. In 2019-20 Council will spend $102 million to deliver services and invest $78 million in community infrastructure.
