Council is responsible for the management of our City's infrastructure and natural assets for the benefit of current and future generations. Millions of dollars are spent annually managing and maintaining these assets throughout their lifecycle.
It is essential that sound asset management practices are in place to ensure all Council assets are managed prudently and efficiently. To ensure this, the Local Government Act 2020 requires all Councils develop a 10-year Asset Plan.
Council's Asset Plan 2023-2032, endorsed on 6 June 2022, has been developed with input from our community via detailed deliberative engagement processes.
A dedicated Frankston 10 Year Asset Plan Community Panel was established in early 2022 to discuss and identify the key principles by which Frankston City should prioritise and invest in its asset over the next 10 years.
The community engagement was undertaken in March 2022 to engage and collaborate meaningfully in line with Local Government Act 2020 requirements, to inform the development of the Frankston 10 Year Asset Plan.
Please see our Community Panel Outcomes Report for more information about this Panel.
Following the inclusion of the outcomes from the detailed deliberative engagement conducted with the Asset Plan Community Panel, the draft Asset Plan was exhibited for broader community feedback via the engage Frankston website between 4th April to the 29th April 2022.

Various changes have been made throughout the Asset Plan based on the feedback received during the public exhibition process. They are in summary:
Our Asset Plan, along with our Community Vision and Council Plan, has been developed with input from our community via detailed deliberative engagement processes.
A dedicated Asset Plan Community Panel was established in February-March 2022 to discuss and identify the key principles by which Frankston City Council should prioritise and invest in its assets over the next 10 years. The diverse Community Panel members were drawn from our larger 520-member Mini Frankston City group, and were broadly reflective of the demographics of our community.
The Community Panel worked together to deliberate over this important question:
In deliberating over this question, the Panel identified the following set of decision-making criteria (principles) and community recommendations for future allocation of discretionary funding and priorities for asset investment.
