Strathbogie Shire Council’s annual Pitch my Project initiative is now open for ideas to include in the 2024/25 Budget.

Since we launched the Pitch my Project initiative, we’re proud to have funded almost 30 incredible ideas from our community.

Council has allocated $300,000 for Pitch My Project as part of the 2024/25 annual budget. Each of the six Strategic Focus Areas within the Council Plan will receive $50,000.

This year, pitches for *infrastructure upgrades that demonstrate strong community benefit can we made through strategic focus areas five and six.

After the success of last year, the community will prioritise all the eligible pitches and decide which ones will make it into the 2024/25 Budget.

All successful ‘pitches’ will be led and delivered by Council, there will not be any allocation of funding to applicants.

We’ve also released guidelines which explains how to pitch your idea and how your pitch will be assessed.

When it’s time to prioritise we’ll put all the eligible pitches here and in our survey stations in each township to ensure everyone has the opportunity to have their say.

* Infrastructure pitches will only be considered on infrastructure listed on Strathbogie Shire Council’s asset register. Please contact Community Development Officer, Jean McKinnon, to determine this. Contact Jean via jean.mckinnon@strathbogie.vic.gov.au or call 1800 065 993.


But first, it’s time to pitch ideas. Read the guidelines in document library and fill in a pitch form below.

The pitch period will close at 5pm on Friday, February 23, 2024.
