Advocacy

The population in the City of Melton has continually grown over the past fifteen years.

That means more pressure on health services, local education facilities, public transport and roads.

The Melton Advocacy Priorities booklet details what is  needed to manage this and anticipated future population growth. The priority projects and services identified within have been developed in conjunction  with our community and a broad range of key stakeholders across private and public sectors.

Melton City Council held a range of community consultations in 2016 and 2017 about the new Community Vision and the Council and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021.

The City of Melton is one of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities in one of the country’s fastest growing regions. Council calls on State and Federal Governments to support the City of Melton as it manages this growth.

Build Melton Hospital

Melton City Council, along with passionate residents, community groups and health professionals launched the Build Melton Hospital campaign on 16 August, 100 days out from the Victorian State Election on Saturday 24 November. 

We're asking the State Government, Opposition and minor parties to commit to building a 24-hour, full-service hospital in the suburb of Cobblebank, 4km southeast of central Melton, south of the Western Freeway and close to the future Toolern train station on the Melton line.
