Our Shire Is In Crisis

Please donate to our fundraising campaign

For the past four years Nillumbik Shire Council has been dominated by a group of four Councillors who have failed to protect our iconic Green Wedge, have presided over financial mismanagement by squandering our financial reserves and replaced many experienced, competent staff. Do we want another four years of Council failing to consult with residents whilst pursuing an overdevelopment agenda?

Now is your opportunity. The election is a couple of months away and you can help elect Councillors who will consult transparently and have the integrity to act in our best interests.

Friends of Nillumbik Inc has worked with residents for twenty years. We lead a team of community groups and interested people of Nillumbik who oppose inappropriate development and protect neighbourhood character and our precious Green Wedge.

We all pay rates from many hundreds to several thousands of dollars, so make your voice heard! We ask for your donation of $50 to $200 to help elect a Council which will act in the best interests of residents, of the environment and of our children, the generation of the future.

Your donation will be used to support good candidates with election advertising, posters and flyers and electronic methods to put their policies out to the public view.

Please help. Send your donation to.....
