City of Port Phillip’s Federal Advocacy Priorities for 2022/23, setting out our key projects, policy changes and funding requests for consideration by the Australian Government.
On behalf of Port Phillip Council, I am delighted to present the City of Port Phillip’s Federal Advocacy Priorities for 2022/23, which set out our key projects, policy changes and funding requests for consideration by the Australian Government.
My fellow Councillors and I are working hard to secure opportunities for a better City of Port Phillip, now and into the future.
Located just south of the Melbourne CBD, the City of Port Phillip sits on 11 kilometres of foreshore, where the city meets the sea. Our municipality boasts a proud legacy as a cultural hub and has long been a playground for Melburnians of all ages thanks to our strong live music and creative industries, an array of tourist attractions and large-scale events.
Regrettably, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the financial position of Council and its impacts have been devastating for many in our community.
Our Council has a range of policy changes and projects that we would like considered to boost the ongoing rejuvenation of our vibrant City.
These priorities have been developed with the help of community input into our Council Plan and other important Council strategies.
Our requests focus on key areas of national interest, including social housing, Federal funding programs, major transport infrastructure, action on climate change and redevelopment of key precincts and buildings within our municipality.
These projects will encourage renewed visitation and patronage to local businesses, create jobs, while providing much-needed infrastructure for our community to enhance the liveability of our City for years to come.
We look forward to working with all levels of government and key stakeholders to develop partnerships to realise our advocacy goals and turn.
