About Council

Geelong is among the largest of 79 Councils which collectively represent approximately 5 million Victorians. While each Council is independent there are common rules, mainly in the form of State Legislation, which provide the framework in which Councils operate.

Our Vision:
Greater Geelong: building our community through enterprise, opportunity and innovation in a quality environment.

Our Mission:
We will focus on developing and maintaining effective working relationships to deliver Council's strategic directions and high quality services that meet the changing needs of our community.
