Whitehorse Budget Blues

Inequitable budget needs changing

Whitehorse Council draft budget for 2019-2020 was published in April

18% of the population involved in structured club/sport will receive a massive 97% of the recreation related budget. The 82% who walk and ride for exercise, recreation or transport get just 3%

The budget direction as far as Active Transport is concerned is very bleak!

WATAG made a detailed submission – see the document below. or download here.

If you are concerned, contact your local Councillors and let them know.
