12 July: Draft Community Plan released for feedback  Printer Friendly

A series of “open house” sessions will be held from 14-22 July 2016 for the community to give feedback on the Draft Community Plan which has been developed to articulate the community’s long term vision for Benalla Rural City.

The Draft Community Plan has been developed after extensive consultation including workshops, “kitchen table” discussions, postcards and online engagement. More than 600 people participated during the initial consultation phase, led by the Community Planning Project Steering Committee in conjunction with specialist consultants.

The community-based Project Steering Committee comprises individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds and Council representatives.

The open house sessions will be informal gatherings where copies of the Draft Community Plan will be on display and members of the Project Steering Committee will be available to answer questions and listen to feedback.

“The Draft Community Plan is a document for the community by the community, outlining what we value about Benalla Rural City, how we want it to be in 2036, and what will need to happen for us to get there,” said Cr Barbara Alexander, Chair of the Steering Committee.

“For the plan to be effective it will need to be put into action by the whole community, so we are seeking as much input as possible so it truly represents the community’s vision,” Cr Alexander said.

“The document is intended to be a guiding document for the whole community. We hope that organisations, businesses and all sectors of the community will use it to assist them in their plans for the future,” she said.
