Do you want to contribute to the development of Council’s 2023/24 draft budget?

We’re again starting our community consultation early to ensure as many people as possible have the opportunity to tell us what projects and priorities should be considered when developing the budget.

This early process is in addition to the usual budget consultation that will take place in April/May 2023 when council considers the draft.

We'll also take on board feedback received when developing our projects, strategies and initiatives, as well as the conversations we had with our community when developing our Council Plan 2021-2025 along with input from our Advisory Committees and other key stakeholders.

However, we also need to be realistic and recognise that not all suggestions will make their way into the draft budget.  

Among the challenges Council faces when preparing its annual budget, is to balance the community’s wishes and aspirations against the ongoing investment required to maintain and renew existing infrastructure and deliver quality services.

Through the responses received, we’ll get a good understanding of what matters most to our community, which will help council in its decision making.

To have your say, simply complete the survey.
