Yarra 2036 Community Vision

Why a Community Vision?

The Local Government Act 2020 requires all Victorian councils to develop and adopt a community vision before 31 October 2021.

They also have important benefits, including:

  • helping us understand our community’s long-term aspirations 
  • providing a tool for future planning and decision making in Yarra 
  • helping guide our community’s future priorities.

How it was developed

The Vision is the product of a two-staged engagement approach, which started with broad community engagement in November 2020, and a community panel in May 2021.

What will it inform?

The Vision will inform all planning and decision making for Council and our community. It will guide and inform our next Council Plan which is effective from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2025, and next 10-year financial and asset management plans. 

We will report on our progress in achieving the Vision through our Annual Report.
