Submit your budget initiative or idea

Do you have a great initiative or project idea that you think should be included in the Council budget?

Melton City Council is preparing the 2024/2025 Budget and invite residents to share the things they think will make a difference to their local community.

Residents, local community groups, organisations, and clubs can submit ideas for consideration by completing the online Budget Submission Form below.

Budget allocation requests closed: Sunday 17 December.

You will have the opportunity to present your idea to Council on the evening of Thursday 15 February 2024 (time to be confirmed). If you would like to pitch your project to Council, please indicate this when making your online submission.

To make a pitch, you will need to share details about your organisation together with your proposal for a project, program or service including who it would service and how it would address a community need and benefit locals. Submitters will also need to be prepared with budget details and project plans.
