2022-23 Draft Annual Budget

We would like your feedback on the 2022-23 Draft Annual Budget.

Our 2022-23 Draft Annual Budget has been designed to action the things that the community told us were most important to them, while being conscious of what we need right now.

We’re focusing on delivering funding that will help our residents, businesses and community organisations continue to rebuild and recover from the pandemic.

Please submit your feedback below by 5:00 pm on Sunday 29 May 2022.

The final budget is expected to be adopted at the Council Meeting on 27 June 2022.

Our priorities include:

  • Help our community with their social and health issues caused by COVID‐19 pandemic.
  • Supporting local businesses through their post pandemic challenges.
  • Help low income and homeless people find a place to live.
  • Reduce food waste going to landfill.
  • Working towards net zero emissions by 2040.

We’re also investing in our community facilities and infrastructure, including:

  • Improving roads and drains.
