Council endorsed the Annual Budget 2020-21 on July 15, following community consultation and submissions made by the public. The Budget outlines the financial resources we need to deliver the 100 services that we provide to the community. It also outlines proposed funding allocations for our capital works program and operating projects.

The adopted budget aligns with the vision set out in the Darebin Council Plan 2017-2021 while responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in a meaningful, practical and tangible way.

Council’s $11.8m Community and Local Business Resilience and Recovery Package is the biggest response of any Victorian Local Government outside of the City of Melbourne.

The package includes a rate relief hardship policy, funding for emergency food relief, and grants for the hardest hit sectors including small businesses and family violence and homelessness support.


2020-21 Annual Budget

Highlights of the 2020-21 Annual Budget include:

- Ensuring the continuation of vital community projects and services, such as 22,200 immunisations, 130,000 hours of aged care services and the provision of more than 25,000 meals.

- Delivering the planting of 6,000 trees, maintenance of more than 60 sporting ovals and fields, and essential upgrades to 8,000 square km of footpaths.

- The provision of highly valued services such as library services to support 626,000 visitors per year, and the collection of 5,500,000 bins.

-The detailed design of the Northcote Aquatic and Recreation Centre and building upgrades and maintenance at Reservoir Leisure Centre.

- A range of upgrades to our parks, sportsgrounds, open spaces and playgrounds, including KP Hardiman Reserve and the BT Connor pavilion.
