Welcome to Your Yarra: Our Future – the exciting journey we're taking with our community to develop Yarra's first ever Community Vision.

The Community Vision will embody the hopes, dreams and aspirations of our residents, businesses and workers for the next 15 years.

We’ll be connecting and partnering with people from all walks to life to create a shared set of values and bedrock for good decision making at Yarra – both for today and future generations.

The Community Vision will also be the cornerstone for Yarra’s next four-year Council Plan. Our Council Plan shapes everything we do at Yarra and the resources we need to deliver them. It will also provide a framework for our annual reporting.

Upcoming project dates

We want to hear from you

Your unique perspectives are important to delivering a successful engagement process, which is expected to start this November with broad community consultation and culminate with a deliberative panel in mid-2021.
