Advocacy on Local Issues

Council is a strong advocate for its community, whether it involves lobbying a State or Federal government or presenting a compelling case at a planning hearing.


  • I Love Kinder campaign - Council has joined the MAV-backed campaign to secure Federal Government funding for 4-year-old kindergarten
  • Speaking up for Kinder Families - Council will lobby State and Federal Members of Parliament and write to the Prime Minister and Senior Ministers to urge that Federal Government funding for five hours of kindergarten continue beyond December 2019
  • Raise Your Hand for Monash Youth - Monash youth speaking out about the future young people could have if they receive the mental health support they need, and how the issues young people face impacts on them every day. 
  • Consulting with the LGBTIQ community to determine the priorities, programs and/or activities that Council could progress - Connecting with LGBTIQ community
  • A campaign to foster stronger connections between residents within local Monash neighbourhoods and to positively impact residents' perceptions of their own safety and their safety within Monash - Meet Your Street campaign
  • Advocating for State Government funding to further improve the Oakleigh Station Precinct
