Moonee Valley City Council

--- Moonee Valley City Council

LeadWest has two types of members: (1) the councils of Melbourne’s west; and (2) organisations that operate in Melbourne's west.

Moonee Valley City Council is one of the founding council members of LeadWest.

The City of Moonee Valley covers an area of 43km² just north of Melbourne City Center and includes the suburbs of Ascot Vale, Flemington, Travancore and Moonee Ponds in the South, Avondale Heights, Keilor East, Airport West, Niddrie, Essendon West and Essendon Fields (Moonee Valley’s newest suburb) in the West, and Strathmore, Strathmore Heights, Essendon, Essendon North and Aberfeldie in the centre.

Approximately 107,443 call Moonee Valley home, and this figure is predicted to remain relatively stable over the next 20 years, with a forecast increase of only 9,000 people by 2028.

Moonee Valley is well known for its streetscapes and historic buildings, the internationally renowned horseracing industry, its active community of sporting enthusiasts, and cultural facilities and events such as the Clocktower Theatre, Incinerator Arts Complex, Moonee Valley Festival, Arts Week and the largest youth festival in the country, YouthFest.

Interested in LeadWest membership?

Any organisation with operations or interests that are based in Melbourne's west may apply for membership. There is a process set down in LeadWest's Constitution for approval of memberships by the Board of Directors
