Imagine Cardinia – final chance to provide your feedback!

You’ve told us what you’d like Cardinia Shire to look like in the future, via online consultation activities, surveys, face-to-face consultations and conversations. Thank you for your valuable input!

A group of passionate residents from across the shire also came together to form the Imagine Cardinia People’s Panel.

The panel worked together to:

  • review responses from the community
  • put together a list of priorities for Council
  • co-author Cardinia’s very first Community Vision, which has been included in the Council Plan 2021–2025.

Council’s proposed Financial Plan 2021–2031, Revenue and Rating Plan 2021–2025 and Budget 2021–2025 have been influenced by the Community Vision and Council Plan community consultation process.

You can now view the draft documents below and let us know if you think your feedback has been reflected. You can provide feedback on only one document or all of them – it’s up to you!


In late-2020, Council called for community members to volunteer to be a part of our very first People’s Panel. The panel was carefully selected to ensure it represented the diversity of residents in Cardinia Shire.

The panel took part in 6 sessions in early-2021. During the sessions, the panel members:

  • learned more about our municipality
  • discussed the broader community feedback received during round one and 2 of the consultation
  • finalised their recommendations for Council plan priorities
  • worked collaboratively to write Cardinia Shire's first ever Community Vision at the last session on Tuesday 9 March 2021.
  • We thank the People's Panel participants for their time and invaluable assistance in developing Council’s major plans.

    Thank you to everyone who provided feedback in round one of community consultation in November and December 2020.
