It’s Time For Melbourne’s North To Have Its Say

Locals in Melbourne’s northern suburbs have an opportunity to join a conversation with the Andrews Labor Government, as community consultation kicks off in the lead-up to the first Northern Metropolitan Partnership assembly on 25 October 2017. The annual Metropolitan Partnerships give people across Melbourne the chance to come together as a community and advise the Andrews Labor Government on regional priorities and opportunities. The assembly will give locals an opportunity to talk directly to decision makers about the future needs of the northern region, and help all levels of government better understand the varied challenges facing Melbourne’s northern region as it grows. The Partnership will then advise government on actions that can make a real difference to the liveability of the Northern Metropolitan Region, which includes the local government areas of Hume, Whittlesea, Nillumbik, Moreland, Darebin, Banyule and the portion of Mitchell Shire falling within Melbourne’s urban growth boundary. The Metropolitan Partnership helps ensure all of Melbourne’s residents will have reliable and affordable access to jobs, services and infrastructure, no matter where they live. The Northern Partnership is one of six across Melbourne’s metro areas, with the Eastern, Inner South-East, Inner Metro, Southern and Western Partnerships also launched in June. Each Partnership includes eight business and community representatives, the CEO of each council in the region and a senior Victorian Government representative.
