Wellington Shire Council is seeking feedback from members of the Rosedale community and surrounds on the concept plans that have been developed for the Western entrance of Rosedale and Willow Park, as part of the $1.5 million Rosedale Revitalisation project.
The Western Entrance beautification plan proposes to remove the current trees between Hood Street west to the Coach Lamp Motel and replace them with a variety of trees that will, over time, provide a significant town entry feature for Rosedale.
Willow Park is an important community open space and RV stopover area that links into the town via a shared pathway. As part of the upgrades, the following is proposed:
- The construction of a public toilet facility
- A new picnic shelter and associated infrastructure
- The creation of an open space area around the picnic shelter
- Revegetation of areas along the Latrobe River and on embankments to improve biodiversity, amenity and reduce erosion
- Significant tree planting of indigenous species to improve amenity
- Resheeting of the shared pathway up to Mill Lane
- Install wayfinding signs at Willow Park and Mill Lane to direct path users to and from the Rosedale town centre.
Council would love to receive your input and is hosting a drop-in session at the Rosedale Neighbourhood House on Wednesday 16 August 2017 from 4pm to 6pm.
Community members can also have their say on Council’s draft Willow Park and Western entrance concept plans by making a written submission. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to Open Space Planner, Rosedale Revitalisation – Willow Park & Western Entrance, Wellington Shire Council, PO Box 506, Sale, VIC 3850.
Closing date for submissions is 5.00pm on Friday 15 September 2017.
The concept plans will be on display at the Rosedale Neighbourhood House and Willow Park and Council’s Service Centre in Sale or online at www.wellington.vic.gov.au/rosedalerevitalisation or by contacting Council’s Open Space Planner on 1300 366 244.
