  • Broadford Structure Plan

    Broadford 3658

    Have your say on Broadford's future direction

    We're in the early stages of developing the Broadford Structure Plan.

    Earlier this year, we called for people to join a Community Liaison Group to help with the development of the plan. Now we're hitting the streets to find out what matters to you.

    On the weekends of 23-24 June and 31 June-1 July, we'll be door-knocking homes, asking them a series of simple questions about their households, travel to work, service gaps and opportunities for Broadford.

  • Draft Domestic Animal Management Plan 2017-2021

    3 months ago
    Dog 2606759 1920

    *Thank you to all who made provided input. All submissions will now be considered before the Plan is considered at a future Council meeting.

    Following community input last year, we've developed a new draft Domestic Animal Management Plan and we want you to take a look and let us know what you think.

    The four-year plan covers pound improvements, desexing, possible curfews and off-leash and on-leash areas. It also has recommendations to increase the number of registered and microchipped animals and to reduce the number of dogs wandering at large.

    To help roll out the plan once it is finalised, Council is also looking to form a Domestic Animal Management Plan Consultative Committee.

    Submissions on the draft plan and expressions of interest for the Consultative Committee must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 23 May 2018.
