Resident associations budget requests 2022-23
As part of the City’s budgeting process, Cockburn resident associations are invited to submit up to three projects for consideration in the 2022 - 23 draft capital works budget. Projects may have a total combined value of up to $30,000.
Resident associations have until 4pm, Monday 20 December 2021 to submit their project ideas. Contact your resident association to share your suggestions.
What projects can be considered?
Priority is given to projects that align with prior Council commitments. Community support for the project must be demonstrated within the submission.
Playground shade sails
Playground improvements (if additional equipment will require extensions to the play pit border and additional soft fall material you will need to consider this as part of your submission as it will impact the cost of the project)
New footpaths linking other footpaths
Small art projects (e.g. murals)
Other small community projects (e.g. parklets)
Solar lighting along footpaths (consider length and proximity to adjacent houses)
Trees in parks
Barbecues (assess if there is a shelter, drinking fountain, seating, etc. already in the park as these are essential infrastructure to support a BBQ. If a park doesn’t have these elements then you will need to consider the cost of these items in your submission)
Shelter, Tables, Seating, bins (consider accessibility issues)
Half-Court Basketball Courts (consider park size and location on park)
Sporting infrastructure (liaise with the City prior to submission)
Park/Reserve signage (consider sign content and name of park)
Before items are presented to Council, officers will assess requests in line with project criteria, budget, long-term plans and policies.
Which projects cannot be considered?
Please note that projects exceeding $30,000 will not be considered. These projects are usually major infrastructure projects like roads, buildings, public toilets, water-based projects, fenced dog exercise areas, skate parks and pump tracks.
Each association can submit a maximum of three projects for consideration, with a total combined value of up to $30,000.
What will happen next?
An initial assessment of the submissions will be undertaken by officers in first quarter 2022. This process determines whether a project is suitable for Council to consider in the 2022-23 draft capital works budget.
If the project is considered suitable for Council consideration, it will be included in the draft budget requests for 2022-23. The draft budget is presented to Council for consideration and approval at Special Council Meeting in June 2022.
