Advocacy Campaign 2021-2025

Overview

As the level of government closest to the community, we are committed to doing everything we can to help Frankston City achieve its vision and aspirations as a vibrant place to live, work, study and enjoy now and into the future.

Council-led advocacy to state and federal governments is a vital tool for building awareness and support for matters that impact our city and to help secure the essential funding necessary to drive change and deliver on priorities that benefit our community.

Draft Advocacy Priorities

Throughout August 2020 and February 2021, we asked our community for their feedback and ideas on the issues that matter to them, how we can improved the challenges they face in their daily lives and their vision for the future of Frankston City.

The results have been used to determine key priorities requiring council-led advocacy in the lead up to the upcoming state and federal elections.
