A BUDGET THAT WORKS FOR YOU

A BUDGET THAT WORKS FOR YOU

Economic sustainability for a prosperous future.

What we have:

  • [x] High rates with subpar services.

  • [x] A bottom line dependent on land sales that inflate the cost of housing.

  • [x] Spending on plans and projects that aren’t delivered on time, if at all, with no recourse.

  • [x] Vulnerable Canberrans are being left behind by a budget that fails to meet their needs.

  • [x] Below-national-average outcomes in key areas including health, corrective services and social housing despite the highest or second-highest spend per capita of any state or territory in these areas.

  • [x] The ACT has consistently received below our per-capita share of federal infrastructure investment.

  • [x] Event-based tourism is limited by weak regional transport connectivity combined with an unambitious events schedule lacking in private-sector collaboration.
