Council Plan and Annual Report

The Council Plan is a medium-term plan that sets out our strategic direction and focus for what we aim to achieve during the four-year Council term.

Community Vision, Council Plan and Health Plan 2021-2025

Our Community Vision, Council Plan and Health Plan for 2021-25 was adopted by Council at a meeting on 26 October 2021. For the second time, we have integrated our Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan into the Council Plan.

The plan is our strategic blueprint for the next four years. It details how we will implement our MV2040 vision, and will guide us as we work to build a healthy city that is fairthrivingconnectedgreen and beautiful.

Our vision statement was refreshed in 2021, to include addressing climate change and recognition of our diverse community.

The plan outlines 21 strategies Council will focus on over the next four years. Each year, we will create an annual plan showing the Council Plan initiatives we will carry out over the next twelve months, to achieve the strategies.

These initiatives will be supported by the services, facilities and programs that Council delivers daily to safeguard and improve the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community.

The plan also outlines the integrated strategic indicators we will use to monitor our progress and success. These are the key community outcomes we will work towards achieving, both over the four years of the Council Plan and until 2040.

Our four-page summary is a quick snapshot of our Community Vision, Council Plan and Health Plan strategies, initiatives and strategic indicators.

Easy English versions of the plan will be available soon.

Health and Wellbeing Profile 2021

The Moonee Valley Health and Wellbeing Profile 2021 presents data on the many factors that influence our health and wellbeing, known as the 'social determinants of health'.

This includes research on:

  • demographics
  • individual lifestyle behaviours
  • living and working conditions
  • neighbourhood and environmental factors
  • health and wellbeing conditions

It also examines the impact of COVID-19 on the health and wellbeing of our community. This data helps inform the Community Vision, Council Plan and Health Plan 2021-25 and is useful while we are planning for the future, to make sure that no one in our community is left behind.

Annual Report

The Local Government Act 2020 requires all Victorian councils to prepare an Annual Report each financial year.

The purpose of the Annual Report is to:

  • report on our performance against delivering the objectives of the Council Plan
  • report on the strategies and initiatives implemented to meet these objectives
  • highlight key achievements and challenges
  • provide details of our financial position

The report includes a copy of the Performance Statement and Financial Statement, which are audited by RSD Audit. The report is prepared in accordance with the Local Government Act 1989, the Local Government Act 2020 and the Local Government Reporting Performance Framework (LGPRF).

Our Performance

The Victorian Government established the Local Government Performance Reporting Framework (LGPRF) in 2014 to ensure that all councils measure and report on their performance in a consistent way.
