The Northern Metropolitan Partnership is an advisory group established by the Victorian Government. The Partnership is a way for local communities to engage directly with state and local governments, and advise the Victorian Government of the top priorities for jobs, services and infrastructure across the region. This advice will become part of government’s key decision-making processes.

Following engagement with its community throughout 2018, the Northern Metropolitan Partnership has developed its advice to the Victorian Government on the regional priorities for the Northern region.

The Partnership's advice to the Victorian Government for 2018 included:

Jobs and Investment – Attract investment and create more local jobs to improve regional prosperity and liveability for all.

Transport and Infrastructure – Improve connectivity and accessibility within the region to ease congestion and support participation for all.

Health and Wellbeing – Improve health and wellbeing by increased access to affordable primary health services that cater to everyone in our community with a focus on early intervention.

Lifelong Learning – Supporting a seamless approach to lifelong learning for all ages, resulting in a more skilled, work-ready, employed, resilient and connected community.

Environmental Sustainability – Protect and enhance the quality of the region’s natural assets, promote the use of renewable energy and improve connection to nature and open spaces.

Connected Young People - To build a strong and resilient region where young people have a voice, feel connected to their communities, are healthy and respected, and where diversity thrives
