Council endorses advocacy priorities for 2022–2023

Council is committed to advocating for projects which are important to our community and deliver measurable results for Glen Eira residents — essential services, better facilities and key infrastructure to make our City more sustainable, liveable and inclusive.

At a Council Meeting on Tuesday 5 April 2022, Council endorsed its advocacy priorities for 2022–2023.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Jim Magee said Council has identified key projects and initiatives that will not only support our community to rebuild, reconnect and restart the economy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but help to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

“These key projects and initiatives will also help to make it easier for residents and visitors to move in and around Glen Eira,” he said.

“Our biggest priorities for the coming year include securing $10 million to help us complete the $52 million redevelopment of the Carnegie Memorial Swimming Pool, along with funding to help us develop new open space for Glen Eira residents.

“With elections at both federal and state levels this year, we are being proactive in seeking funding and policy commitments to support these and other urgent priorities, including actions to address the climate emergency and funding to ensure safe, accessible and sustainable transport options for our community.”

Cr Magee said Council also endorsed its Advocacy Policy which affirms Council’s commitment to proactively advocating for its community and provides direction and guidance for its advocacy efforts.
