Greater Geelong Council has released its Proposed 2024-25 to 2027-28 Budget for community feedback.


The budget aims to deliver facilities and services to meet the community’s needs, while helping the Council remain financially sustainable in a challenging economic environment.

The proposed budget forecasts a small operating surplus of $2.07 million in 2024-25, while containing total average rate rises to the 2.75 per cent Victorian Government cap.

The Council’s strong focus on new and upgraded facilities to cater for Greater Geelong’s growing population will continue.

A proposed capital works program totalling $210.5 million in 2024-25 and $752.6 million over the next four years will result in new or improved sporting facilities, community centres, parks and reserves across the region.  The works will be delivered via a combination of direct Council funding, state and federal government grants, and developer contributions.

The Proposed Budget is available for community feedback until 5pm on Wednesday 22 May via the 'Have Your Say' page.
