Putting infrastructure, inclusivity and the climate emergency front and centre in the Victorian election

Thursday 08 September 2022

Yarra City Council will put infrastructure, inclusivity and the climate emergency front and centre at this year’s Victorian Election.

Advocacy, and representing the views of the community, is a core function of all councils.

At its Council meeting on 23 June, Yarra adopted its 2022 Victorian Election Advocacy Priorities which support positive community outcomes across the municipality and help create a climate-safe, equitable and liveable Yarra for the future.

Yarra’s priorities capture 33 different policy reforms, projects and initiatives across 7 action-orientated themes, including:

    •  Taking real and tangible action to address the climate emergency
    •  Creating a safe, inclusive and connected community
    •  Investing in local community infrastructure
    •  Improving movement and connectivity
    •  Supporting growth and liveability in Cremorne
    • Supporting arts and culture in Yarra
    • Revitalising our precincts, activity centres and suburbs

Council will be seeking commitments from local candidates and political parties to advance these priorities and ensure the projects and initiatives our city needs most to grow and thrive are supported by our State representatives.
