Budget Ideas 2021-22

The City of Stonnington has commenced our Shaping Stonnington 2040 engagement which aims to start a conversation with the community about our shared vision and priorities for the future.

Over the coming months, there will be opportunities for everyone to share ideas for the type of future you want for your City.

In the meantime, we want to hear from you about initiatives you think Council should consider for inclusion in the City of Stonnington’s Budget for 2021-22.

To help you get started, some emerging themes our Shaping Stonnington engagement have included:

  • The importance of open space and environment
  • Developing and fostering a sense of community
  • Supporting local businesses
  • Having a connected city
  • Improving community health and wellbeing

We invite you to share your ideas, large or small, on how we can start working towards these and any other outcomes that are important to you.

In the meantime, for more information about future opportunities to participate in the development of our long-term Community Vision, please visit our Shaping Stonnington page.

Ideas close Monday 30 November 2020.

For further information please contact Council on 8290 1333 or email finance@stonnington.vic.gov.au
