Our Priorities

"We want our residents and future residents to aim high..."

Transport connectivity and access

TRANSPORT CONNECTIVITY
AND ACCESS 

Connectivity is a challenge for the North. Current and continuing population growth has implications for continued congestion which is severe in comparison to other regions of Melbourne and increasing public transport demand is placing pressure on the existing systems.

 

Large time spent travelling to the CBD has social and health implications and limited ability to move across suburbs results in long commutes. Connected population leads to greater access to jobs and services.

Advocacy Position 

COMMUNITY HEALTH AND WELLBEING

Melbourne’s North is characterised by diversity, including in socio-economic, health and educational indicators. Our region has of disadvantage that deserve to be addressed and increased investment has the potential to influence these indicators in a positive way. Population Growth will also increase need for hospital and social services into the future, paving the way for expansion of jobs in the health sector to meet the needs of our growing and diverse community.
