Town future plan

by
April 13, 2018

Mitchell Shire Council is looking for community members to help guide a plan about the long-term future of Broadford.

The council is in the early stages of developing the Broadford Structure Plan — a comprehensive document that will shape the future look and feel of the town, will guide growth and development, while also ensuring the preservation of the town’s character.

To get started, the council wants residents to be part of a Community Liaison Group.

The group will play an important role in representing community views at key milestones in the preparation of the structure plan and will provide a connection back to the community.

The council is looking for people to represent the community in the fields of sport, recreation and open space; transport; natural environment; heritage; business, commerce and industry; community and health; education and youth.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda Sanderson said the plan would set out a clear direction for the future vision of Broadford.

‘‘The beginning of this process marks a really important and exciting time for the Broadford community,’’ Cr Sanderson said.

‘‘It is important we create the Broadford Structure Plan, in conjunction with our community, to ensure Broadford is best placed to cater for future growth, attract more jobs and quality services, and plan for new residents.

‘‘We’re keen to hear from a wide range of enthusiastic and passionate residents to join the Community Liaison Group, which will play a vital role in developing this plan and will be a key contact with the wider community.’’

The Broadford Structure Plan is the latest structure plan being developed by the council following Wallan, Kilmore, Wandong/Heathcote Junction, Beveridge and Seymour.

For more information on the Community Liaison Group or the Broadford Structure Plan, go to www.engagingmitchellshire. com/broadford3658 or visit one of the council’s Customer and Library Service Centres.

Nomination forms will be accepted until April 30.
