Last year, through a process of deliberative engagement with the community, the Council developed a Community Vision and four-year Council Plan 2021–2025 that outlines what it aims to deliver over its four-year term.

The Council Plan 2021–2025 includes six strategic objectives that cover people, culture, the economy, the environment, as well as Melbourne’s unique and Aboriginal identity. Underpinning these strategic objectives are 52 major initiatives the Council has committed to deliver by 2025.

This Annual Plan describes the key activities the Council will undertake in 2022–23 to deliver those 52 major initiatives in order to achieve our vision of Melbourne as a City of Possibility.

The Annual Plan 2022–23 is a companion document to the Budget 2022–23 which outlines how the Council will resource its activities over the financial year.

The draft Annual Plan was open for community consultation from 17 May to 14 June and was adopted by Council on 28 June.
