The City of Casey’s big population needs big investment.
Council led advocacy is a key way the City of Casey secures funding for a better transport network and the jobs, infrastructure, sustainability and services our community needs.
Our Council Plan 2021-25 reflects how important this work is to our residents. Advocacy is a key strategic objective in the plan (see Strategic Objective 4).
On behalf of our residents, we work with the Victorian and Australian Governments and other bodies to seek funding and commitments for projects and services in Casey.
Together we have achieved funding for public transport, major road upgrades such as Monash Freeway, buildings like Bunjil Place and community programs such as kindergarten and more.
Community feedback tells us which projects most need funding. Our community considers major rail and transport upgrades as the most important issue they want funded.
Council’s current advocacy campaign Connecting Casey promotes these important projects and how they can be delivered.
Top priority Connecting Casey projects include:
- Clyde Road Corridor Upgrade
- Clyde Rail Link
- Thompsons Road Upgrade and Extension
To ensure Casey’s community can become more connected, bold and resilient our Connecting Casey advocacy campaign will be a voice for advocacy and change.
