Budget and capital works 2023/24

As we prepare our 2023/24 budget, we’re inviting submissions on our four-year capital works program.

We’re investing a record $198.5 million including delivery of more than $109 million in new capital works projects over the next four years.

The 2023-24 capital works program has $14.74 million in new funding through grants and external contributions to help us deliver 18 new projects. This does not account for projects that will carry forward from 2022-23 that have grant funding attached to them.

We’ll upgrade existing and build new roads, footpaths, walking and cycling paths, and bridges and we’ll develop community facilities, stadiums and pavilions, sporting reserves, parks and playgrounds.

Some of the projects for 2023-24 include:

  • Beveridge Recreation Reserve
  • Beveridge, Greater Beveridge Community Centre expansion
  • Broadford Family and Children's Centre expansion
  • Broadford Secondary College oval upgrade
  • Kilmore Ryans Creek Reserve expansion
  • Kilmore Senior Citizens upgrade
  • Pyalong Kindergarten upgrade
  • Pyalong Recreation Reserve shared-use court and lighting project
  • Sealed Road Renewal - Annual Program
  • Seymour Heywood Hill Reserve park and playspace upgrade
  • Seymour Kings Park Playspace upgrade
  • Seymour Old Landfill passive gas flare
  • Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre improvements to concourse, group fitness room, pool cover and other sustainability upgrades
  • Tallarook Outdoor Pool slide replacement
  • Wandong Community Centre upgrade
  • Wallan Central Cycle and Nature Trail
  • Wallan Darraweit Road upgrade
  • Wallan Greenhill Reserve lower oval upgrade
  • Wallan RB Robson Stadium upgrade
  • Wallan Wellington Street construction

By funding important projects our growing communities need now, we're making a real difference in the lives of our residents and connecting them to the programs and services they want, and need, close to home.

In the past two years, we've received some really good input from our community on our plans, strategies, the new Mitchell 2050 Community Vision, and what projects you would like to see happening around Mitchell Shire.

We’ve developed these plans in partnership with the feedback you provided in the Mitchell 2050 Vision, Council Plan, and other strategies and projects.
