There are three ways to share your ideas and priorities.

You can:

  1. Allocate points to areas that are important to you
    Review the 14 themes below and allocate points to areas that matter to you. Should roads maintenance take priority or do playgrounds need more attention? You can spend all your points in one area or split among different areas - the choice is yours.

  2. Prioritise our existing spending
    Use our service prioritisation tool to see how every $1000 of the budget is currently allocated to services. You can use it to increase or decrease the allocation to suit your preferences/needs.

  3. Submit your specific project/ideas
    Is there a specific project you want funding or area in mind (new footpath location for example)?
    Make a written submission under the Tell us your ideas’ heading.

Your input will be help guide funding allocations for Council budgets and long-term planning.

All feedback will be presented to Council for review, ensuring every voice is heard.
