Project background

We have developed a Football (AFL) Strategy that outlines the priorities and actions to support the sustainable growth of AFL in the City of Melton.

We encourage everyone to read it and provide feedback and comments. We will take these into consideration before finalising the strategy,

The amount of growth and change likely to be experienced across the municipality by 2032 is significant. The Football (AFL) Strategy has been developed to help plan for this change, providing Council with a plan that is supported by evidence and flexible over time.

The development of the Football (AFL) Strategy supports the football community by:

  • Ensuring new communities have the right number and mix of facilities to support participation in football now and through its growth over time
  • Planning the right mix and ensuring that all venues provide a quality experience for all users.
  • Investing in facilities that support the creation of vibrant and sustainable clubs.
  • Working in partnership with government, developers and AFL Victoria to fund and deliver priority projects
  • Collaborating with clubs and leagues to provide diverse participation opportunities.
  • Supporting existing clubs through facility renewal programs and club development resources.
  • Addressing legacy issues and growing pains with existing facilities and clubs, ensuring equitable opportunities to participate locally.
