Opportunity to get to know Yan Yean candidates

Popular Stories

Whittlesea Community Futures will soon host a Yan Yean state election candidate question and answer forum, giving residents and businesses an opportunity to get to know their candidates.

Hosted in partnership with Plenty Valley FM and facilitated by the ABC’s Barrie Cassidy, the forum will provide a chance for the community to learn about each candidate contesting the seat of Yan Yean in the lead-up to the state election later this month.

The City of Whittlesea, which makes up a significant portion of the Yan Yean electorate, has been identified as one of Victoria’s fastest-growing municipalities, with the population expected to grow by 60 per cent by 2040.

The growth can create both challenges and opportunities, with Australian Bureau of Statistics data showing the City of Whittlesea is the fifth most disadvantaged metropolitan municipality in Victo-ria.

The City of Whittlesea is seeking state government co-investment in 19 key initiatives across seven identified economic domains: infrastructure and community services, employment, public transport, health and wellbeing, affordable housing, roads, and environmental sustainability.

Investment in these areas is anticipated to create and enhance conditions for economic growth, liveability and sustainability, supporting a rapidly expanding population.

The question and answer forum will be held on Thursday, November 17. To attend, residents must register their interest and will then be advised if they have successfully secured a ticket.

To register an expression of interest, people can visit www.eventbrite.com.au/e/eoi-for-yan-yean-candidate-qa-forum-tickets-433307453257.
