Final Draft Calder Park Drive Level Crossing Removal Urban Design Principles
Council has adopted the Calder Park Drive Level Crossing Removal Project Urban Design Principles to assist with advocacy for safer and better connected communities.
The 9 design principles will help Council take a coordinated approach to seek the best possible urban design and transport outcomes for the community through works delivered by the State Government.
In July 2021, the State Government announced funding to remove the Calder Park Drive Level Crossing by 2025. The announcement suggested the level crossing would be replaced with a new road bridge over the existing rail line.
Brimbank Aquatic & Wellness Centre – June 2022 Status Update
Construction of the ground-breaking Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre is on track, with demolition of the former St Albans Leisure Centre, earthworks and structural construction completed.
Some of the current works underway include installation of the water slides, flooring, window glazing, painting and fit out of the sauna and steam room.
Consultation with key stakeholders has occurred throughout the Project and will continue as part of the final design and construction phase of the project.
Final Draft Annual Budget
Council adopted the final Annual Budget 2022-2023, following extensive community consultation.
Council has delivered a financially responsible budget that prioritises improving parks, roads and sporting facilities, addresses climate emergency, supports our community with mental health and wellbeing initiatives, and business support initiatives that promote economic recovery from COVID-19.
The budget underpins our city’s recovery efforts through COVID-19, while also delivering much-needed services and programs.
This budget will invest $56.64 million on capital works to fund the delivery of projects, services and facilities across our city.
The final budget has been shaped by the feedback and ideas shared during Council’s extensive budget community engagement, and is consistent with the vision and objectives in the Council Plan 2021-2025 and Community Vision 2040.
