Delving into the BCC Budget

An update from Ferny Grove & Upper Kedron Residents Association

Community Planning in Action

The scope of our Association covers the suburbs of Ferny Grove, Upper Kedron and Keperra.  These suburbs are all part of The Gap Ward of Brisbane. The Gap Ward also includes the suburbs of Ashgrove and The Gap.  

Following the recent release of the Brisbane City Council budget for the year ending 30 June 2022, we took a deeper look at how the budget will be applied to the suburbs we represent.  In our August column in the Hills Echo, we provided some of the high-level analysis which found that as part of The Gap Ward’s $10.3m budget, Ferny Grove, Upper Kedron and Keperra have been allocated just over $3m in funding.  This month, we share more detail on where that $3m has been assigned. See table below.

General Meeting & Planning Session

The interactive community planning workshop we held as part of our August general meeting spurred plenty of constructive discussion on ways in which our local roads, parks, bikeways, footpaths, reserves and public transport could be improved or maintained.  

Our Committee is in the process of collating and analysing the ideas and suggestions shared on the day.  Our aim is to present them in a meaningful way to Council to support the 2022-23 budget prioritisation for Upper Kedron, Ferny Grove and Keperra.
