Consultation with our community is central to what we do at Monash. This can include asking locals what they want to see in an upgraded playground, working with residents to make sure Council projects are complementary to their neighbourhood, and asking people about the future use of our open space sites.

As an important part of Council’s planning, we are now seeking community feedback on what matters to you. Your feedback will help us build on our existing Community Vision, set our priorities for the next four years and influence key Council strategies and plans.

These plans will impact all residents in Monash as they guide the day-to-day operations of Council and shape our longer-term decisions. This includes the types of services we provide to the community, where and what capital works we undertake, which facilities we prioritise our investment in, and how we can best support the health and wellbeing of the community and environment.

Tell us your ideas and aspirations to shape the future of this municipality where you live, work and play in.
