This lighter Footprints submission on the Boroondara Budget for 2022-23 raises a number of concerns.

-Lack of meaningful community engagement with the process of budget consultations.

Lack of detail on the initiatives funded.

-Overall low funding for the Climate Action Plan and the possibility that the underspend for 2021/22 will not be rolled over to 2022/23.

-The inadequate funding for the implementation of the bicycle strategy and integrated transport strategy and for the protection of the tree canopy.
