Thank you for your participation

You have helped us plan for a better City of PAE. Below is the outcome of our community engagement between 26 April - 25 May 2022.

As we continue our community-led recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, we will deliver projects and services to help our community to connect, heal and thrive. An average rate increase of 3.95% will harness new opportunities and growth, while recognising the cost of living pressures on our community. This is significantly lower than March 2022 CPI (4.7%) and represents an average increase of $33 per year per household.

During 2022-23 we will:

  • Complete Design of the Aboriginal Cultural Centre
  • Continue our adaptation to climate change through our Living Environment Strategy to green our City, lower our emissions, and protect our coast and landscape
  • Upgrade change rooms at Greenacres, T K Shutter and Gepps Cross Reserves to modernise and make them more accessible
  • Celebrate and enjoy the Port River with the inaugural three-day Port River Sports Festival featuring sports, performance, culture and food
  • Complete master plans for upcoming redevelopment projects at the Semaphore Foreshore and E P Nazer Reserve
  • Deliver eight playground upgrades across the City including Dover Street Reserve (Blair Athol) and Polonia Reserve (Croydon Park)
  • Deliver $64.2 million of infrastructure works to improve our streetscapes, community facilities, roads, drainage, parks and reserves

This budget will enable us to maintain our existing $1.7 billion of infrastructure and deliver services that are both sustainable and in line with our community’s needs and expectations. (link to adopted document)
