Budget 2024-25

Have your say

Want to influence how the Shire allocates its funds? Consultation for the 24-25 Budget is now underway, and we would love to hear from YOU! We’ve made it quick and easy for everyone to have their ideas and priorities considered for the Budget. Rank your priorities below or share your feedback in the comment box. All contributions and feedback will be presented to Council for their consideration.

While most of the money in the Budget is allocated to essential services including rubbish and recycling, road maintenance, family services and more, a portion of the Budget is spent at the discretion of Council, and is influenced by our community’s feedback.

Last year

Last year, consultation results showed that the top priority of our community was road safety and maintenance. Council took this on board and allocated a total operating budget of $26 million to transport connections, which is an eight per cent increase on the previous year’s spend.

Other highlights from last year’s budget are many, including, but not limited to:

  • $2.6M for footpath renewal and risk mitigation
  • $500,000 for a new playground in Hastings
  • $2.9M for a new pavilion at Red Hill Reserve
  • $1M to Canadian Bay foreshore carpark renewal
  • $100,000 towards investigating soccer facilities in Somerville
  • $5.5M for the new Southern Peninsula Youth Hub
  • $110,000 Sorrento netball court design.

Other popular initiatives included introducing tip vouchers to tenants, increasing the number of no charge green waste events, and removing the tip fees for mattresses, tyres and fridges.
