Developing Glen Eira's Asset Plan

We developing a 10 year Asset Plan and we would like to hear what is important to our community.

What is the Asset Plan?

The Asset Plan is a 10-year document that guides the way Council prioritises and manages its assets to increase their lifespan whilst ensuring that their replacement, disposal, upgrade or renewal occurs at the right time and in the most cost-effective manner.

Why is Glen Eira Council updating the 10 year Asset Plan?

As an outcome of the Local Government Act 2020, councils are required to develop and adopt an Asset Plan (the Plan) by June 30, 2022. The Plan aims to be the overarching document that provides strategic direction to ensure that infrastructure assets are managed and maintained efficiently and effectively, for the next 10 years.

Council manages approximately $1.5 Billion worth of infrastructure assets, which range from buildings, minor structures, roads, drainage, carparks, footpaths, playgrounds, open space to sporting grounds and ovals.

As part of the development of Council’s first Asset Plan, we want to hear your opinion on:

  • What you would consider to be priority assets?
  • What your expectation of Assets are?
  • What’s important about Council managed infrastructure and assets?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities you see over the next 10 years?

The aim is to ensure the Asset Plan accurately reflects the community’s priorities, and to seek community feedback on what should be included.

How can you provide feedback?
