Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on the draft Budget, draft Long-term Financial Plan and draft Revenue and Rating Plan and comments on the separation of waste service charges. All comments and feedback were considered as part of the draft Budget consultation process.

Yarra's Budget 2023/24 was adopted at an Extraordinary Council Meeting on Monday 19 June 2023.

Our Budget 2023/24 puts community first, paving the way for a financially sustainable future, without any impact on service delivery. Being smarter and more efficient in how we utilise funds means we can provide for both current and future residents.

A bit about this year's Budget

The Budget outlines funding for the next financial year and how it will benefit the Yarra community.

This year’s Budget also includes the separation of waste service charges from general rates to help cover the rising cost of providing waste services to our community.

The consultation for the 2023/24 draft Budget was open from Friday 21 April to Friday 19 May 2023.
