About the Partnership

The Western Metropolitan Partnership was established by the Victorian Government as a way for local communities to engage directly with state and local governments and advise the Victorian Government of the top priorities across the region.

2020 engagement

The 2020 engagement program has now closed. Thanks to all who participated.

Building on previous years, the 2020 engagement focused on your experience of living more locally, as well as three key areas:

  • Transport
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Jobs, skills and education

Background

In 2017 the Victorian Government established six Metropolitan Partnerships to better understand and respond to the needs of Melbourne’s communities. The Metropolitan Partnerships work with communities, stakeholders and local government to develop advice for the Victorian Government on the top priorities for each region. The six Partnerships include Inner Metro, Inner South-east, Western, Northern, Eastern and Southern.

Each Partnership is made up of volunteer members from across the region with a mix of backgrounds, experience and networks, the CEOs of each local council, and a Deputy Secretary from the state government.
