Advocacy

An important part of Council's work is representing the interests of the local community to other levels of government. This advocacy role is explicitly defined in the Local Government Act.

Ahead of the upcoming Victorian and federal elections Council is seeking support for a number of key priorities on behalf of our community.

We want to work with all representatives of our region to achieve strong outcomes to enhance the liveability of Bayside.

Meet the Candidates Forums

Members of the Bayside community can hear directly from the political candidates in the upcoming state election at the Bayside Meet the Candidates Forums in late October.

All nominated candidates have been invited to attend the forums on 25 October for Brighton/Bentleigh Districts and 31 October for the Sandringham District and Southern Metropolitan Region.
