We're seeking your feedback on the draft 10-year Asset Plan for Merri-bek

As part of the Imagine Merri-bek Engagement Program we have prepared a draft a 10 year Asset Plan for Merri-bek Council.

The 10 year Asset Plan is informed by Merri-bek's Community Vision and is a long term strategy to help us renew, expand or upgrade our community assets.

We want to continue to provide great facilities for our community to use, and also ensure our assets are well manged for future generations.

How has the draft Asset Plan been developed?

The draft 10-year Asset Plan has been developed through three stages of community engagement as part of the Imagine Merri-bek program. You can read reports about our past community engagement on the this draft Plan in the document library of this webpage.

What happens next?

The draft 10-year Asset Plan is now available for feedback until 11:59pm Sunday 29 May. Tell us what you think by completing the submission form below.

The level of engagement pursued at this stage of the 10-year Financial Plan development is the level of ‘consult’ on the International Association of Public Participation Spectrum (IAP2). This means we commit to keeping you informed about this project, listening to and acknowledging the concerns and aspirations you raise in submissions, and we will provide feedback on how your input influenced decision making.
