Mitchell Shire Council is committed to creating safe and welcoming spaces for the community.

Two years ago you told us that installing CCTV (cameras) and lighting would help you feel safer in the Broadford Community Precinct and reduce levels of graffiti, vandalism, anti-social behaviour and crime.

CCTV and lighting were installed in 2020 around the Broadford Community Precinct which includes the Broadford Youth Room, skate park, Broadford Living and Learning Community Centre, Community Garden, Men’s Shed and Mount Piper Kindergarten.

Now the CCTV and lighting towers are installed, and we want to know if you think the project has increased feelings of safety.

Your feedback will help us to continue creating safer spaces throughout our entire community.

    Mitchell Shire Council is committed to creating a safer and more involved community by working with all stakeholders, including Victoria Police, the community, community groups, and agencies, to improve public safety, and enhance community perceptions of safety in public spaces. We are looking to activate public spaces to encourage greater community use for all members of the community.

    An opportunity to apply for a Department of Justice grant has arisen, which funds projects to implement measures to improve public safety and security infrastructure, and to increase community perceptions of safety in public spaces.

    We recognise the benefits in consulting with the community prior to embarking on this project.

    This is where you come in. We want your views and opinions on the proposed safety measures we would like to implement, should we be successful in the grant funding (including the installation of CCTV and public safety lighting in the Broadford community precinct).

    The Broadford Precinct covers the newly refurbished Broadford Living and Learning Centre, Police Station, Youth Room and Skate Park.

    Your views will inform the completion of the grant application, ensuring that we are requesting funding for activities and infrastructure that the community wants and needs.
