Advocacy Strategy refresh

We’re Advocating for Moonee Valley

We're very excited to announce the launch of our "refreshed" Advocacy Strategy ahead of the Federal Election! You can download a copy here.

Our Top Tier advocacy priorities for Moonee Valley are:

  • A train station for Airport West
  • A new community hub for Flemington at Debneys Park
  • An expanded mental health service for young people
  • A commitment to early years services
  • A greener Moonee Ponds Creek
  • Increasing tree canopy

We're also advocating for a range of Second Tier priorities:

  • A plan for a safer Essendon North intersection
  • A transport plan for the Maribyrnong Defence Site
  • A safer Moonee Ponds Junction
  • Support for refugees already living in our community, through the Back Your Neighbour campaign
  • A better approach to housing
  • An indoor netball/basketball facility for Keilor East
  • Support for local government aged services
  • A new plan for waste
  • The activation of the Maribyrnong River.

You'll notice that in this version of the Advocacy Strategy, our priorities are grouped into themes: advocating for infrastructure, community, services, and our environment. We've tried to focus on top tier priorities which interact with the federal policy and funding space, in light of the upcoming election. But we've also been sure to include medium and long term priorities which intersect with all levels of Government, to continue our advocacy over the coming years.

We'd like to thank everybody who contributed to our Advocacy Strategy refresh by filling out our online survey, providing your feedback on social media or visiting us in person at one of our drop-in sessions. With your help, we're advocating for Moonee Valley that's even more fair, thriving, connected, green and beautiful.

In the lead-up to the election, there will be a number of opportunities for you to contribute to Council's advocacy efforts. If you haven't already, you can:

- sign our petition seeking an election commitment of funding for the Moonee Ponds Creek

- show your support for a station at Airport West by filling out our poll or requesting a poster for your home or business

- petition the Prime Minister for ongoing kinder funding and support our 14 Moonee Valley kinders.

You can also read more about Council's vision for the Flemington Community @ Debneys Park, the Maribyrnong River and a netball/basketball facility at Quinn Grove, Keilor East and have your say.
