This advice will be become part of the government’s key decision-making processes.
Have your say
The Southern Metropolitan Partnership is seeking your feedback to help shape Melbourne’s south for the future.
If you live or work in the Southern Metropolitan Partnership region, we want to hear from you!
Tell us more about your priorities
In 2018, the top priorities for the Southern region were:
- Jobs and skills
- Social inclusion.
In 2019, we are taking a deeper dive into these priority areas to better understand the needs of community members and groups.
We will use your views to shape decisions
Your insights will be used by the partnership to develop an advice paper for the Victorian Government to assist in key decision-making processes in 2019-20.
What does a well-connected community look like?
Community is all about connection. Please write a short sentence about what a 'well-connected community' means to you. Does this mean easy access to public transport? Knowing your neighbours? Having regular meetings with friends? Having access to local shops? Knowing your shopkeepers by name? Access to meaningful work? The list is endless, but we want to hear your personal perspective.
