On the 28 June 2017 Council adopted the draft Environmental Elements of Sustainability Strategy to allow for a period of public consultation.

The purpose of the Strategy is to set the direction for the implementation of environmentally sustainable policies and practices over the next 10 years.

The plan has been developed with input from the community obtained during initial phases of consultation.

We now invite you to review the final draft and provide your input prior to the matter being considered by Council for final approval. 

The draft Environmental Elements of Sustainability Strategy can be viewed by {Clicking Here} or by visiting the “Your Say” page. The plan is open to the public until Friday 15 September 2017.

Project Summary:  The Shire is scheduling its bi-annual street tree pruning program for the Main Street.  This work is conducted for tree health, safety of the public and to ensure no tree is impeding the movement of heavy or large vehicles that currently travel along the Main Street.  These works will be carried out by the Shire’s preferred Arborist and Traffic Controllers.

Commencement Date:  Works have been planned to commence on Monday 4 September with a two week timeframe allocated for completion, weather permitting.  Work will be conducted over 4 to 5 days working on one section of town at a time  (refer to attached location map).  The Shire will be engaging 2 works crews to ensure the job is completed as quickly and safely as possible, with works to finish in each area before midday.

Property Access:  To minimise disruption to businesses the works are planned to start no earlier than 7am due to noise restrictions.  Please be aware that there will be noise created by chainsaws, chippers and machinery and every effort will be made to minimise disruption during works to traffic and pedestrian numbers.

Traffic Management:  During these works, traffic management will be in place.  The Shire is also placing multi-message boards at either end of town with a similar message advising motorists to expect delays.  During the works traffic management will include pedestrian movements but at no time will access to the business be closed however, disruption to parking out the front of businesses will be closed during the works. The Shire will endeavour to avoid lengthy delays, and we appreciate your cooperation during this time.

Further information:  Should you have further enquiries regarding these works, please contact the Shire’s Operations Coordinator, Mr Grant Kirby on 9780 5649 or 9780 5255.
