Help us set the priorities for our Budget

Preparing a budget and long-term financial plan is an essential part of Local Government.

Understanding what goes into the process and weighing up all of the demands for services and how they will be paid, while meeting legislative and policy requirements, can be a complex task.

We want to give our residents the opportunity to learn more about the services we provide and offer their view of where rates money should be spent.

Council’s interactive budget simulation will help us understand your priorities. The budget simulation tool will be open from 13 October to 10 November 2021. Visit

Join our citizens’ panel for the budget process

In late November, we will be holding two deliberative engagement sessions to analyse the information gathered from the community during October and November.

This information will be used to provide recommendations for Council to consider when developing our Budget and Financial Plan, ensuring it is reflective of the community’s financial priorities.

If you are over 18 and live in or own a business in Glen Eira, we invite you to express interest in being part of this process. You can do this by completing the Expression of Interest form at

Submissions close 5pm Monday 1 November 2021.
