The City of Melbourne has developed a 10-Year Financial Plan to deliver on our vision for the city’s growth, prosperity and liveability.

We engaged with the community in two ways – through broader community engagement and via our first People’s Panel.

The broad community engagement took place across the city from Wednesday 30 July to Wednesday 3 September. Anyone could join the conversation using the budget simulator and at a number of community events across the city. Information gathered during the broader community engagement was presented to the People’s Panel to inform their recommendations.

The People’s Panel of 43 randomly selected Melburnians was formed to make recommendations to Council on its spending and revenue strategy over the next decade. Since August 2014, the diverse group of residents and ratepayers were given open access to information, expert opinion and financial data to inform its recommendations.
