A message from the Lord Mayor of Melbourne Sally Capp …

29 Jan 2020

Melbourne is Australia’s fastest-growing city and will be the biggest by the end of the decade.

More people than ever before are choosing to live close to where they work and near the best places to unwind. And this is driving development throughout our CBD, Docklands and Southbank.

Melbourne’s economy has just reached a turnover of $100 billion annually. Our workforce is brimming with skilled workers and entrepreneurs, teachers and nurses, artists and performers. We welcome a community with diverse skills, experiences and interests to support a bright future. 

As our city changes and continues to grow it is important that we have effective ways to communicate and connect. Our local media has a significant role to play in meeting the changing needs of local communities. 

 I’d like to welcome readers to the new-look Docklands News.

A great city is the product of long-term decision making based on evidence, listening to the ambitions of our residents and workers and understanding what makes each local community distinct.

In Melbourne we are lucky to have active and committed local publications that cover the CBD, Docklands and Southbank in depth. The cares, concerns and pulse of our communities are recorded each month and this allows local issues to be debated and ideas to be presented.  

These publications also create connections for people to get involved in issues and activities that they are interested in and enjoy. These connections build strong and vibrant communities. 

I’d like to thank everyone who reads and contributes to Docklands News, fostering a strong connection to their community.

 

Cr Sally Capp - Lord Mayor of Melbourne
