Project update - June 2021
Councillors and Community Liaison Group Bus Tour
On 8 April 2021 a joint bus tour was organised with members from the Community Liaison Group, Councillors and Council officers. The group went out on site and visited a number of key locations, including the Pine Plantation, the Hamilton Street Bridge, Davidson Street and Powlett Street. Key comments from submitters have been shared and discussed on site.
Petition on the Jeffreys Lane Growth Area proposal
On 28 May 2021, a petition was lodged with Council relating the proposed Jeffreys Lane Growth Area, accompanied with digital and hard copy signatures. Council has also received a number of other late submissions on the Draft Broadford Structure Plan. With these supportive and opposing submissions, the total number of submissions has now grown to 70. The additional petition and submissions have been discussed with Council’s Management Team on Wednesday 16 June. At this meeting, a decision was made to continue the process around the Broadford Structure Plan and proceed to organise the Community Questions and Hearings Committee.
A Community Questions and Hearings Committee meeting on the Broadford Structure Plan is now scheduled for Monday 30 August 2021, subject to Covid restrictions in place at that point in time. At this meeting, the organisers of the petitions and all submitters will have the opportunity to address our Councillors. All submitters will receive further information on how you can sign up and participate on that day.
After that meeting, the Final Structure Plan will be prepared and discussed at a Council Meeting later this year.
Thank you for taking part in the Broadford Structure Plan consultation process. This survey is now closed. We're still in the process of drafting, but keen an eye on our meetings at www.mitchellshire.vic.gov.au
