Mitchell’s advocacy priorities

Federal election 2019

We're calling on candidates in the Federal election to commit funding for local mental health services and a full diamond interchange ramps joining Hume Freeway and Watson Street in Wallan. You can add your voice at by sending an email to candidates in the seats of McEwen, Nicholls and Bendigo. You can also download fact sheets and posters and learn more about these important issues.

Advocacy priorities

Mitchell Shire’s population is growing at a rate of 4.8% a year. This projected growth is changing the characteristics and demographics of the region and putting additional pressure on already strained infrastructure and services.

Asking for Help to Provide Services and Infrastructure into our Future

To ensure the liveability of Mitchell Shire, we have worked with our community to develop our advocacy priorities that require planning or funding investment.

These fact sheets and business cases are for community, government, elected representatives, election candidates, government departments and service providers to better understand the critical needs of our community and to ensure our service and infrastructure investment needs are supported now and in the future.
