Community Infrastructure Plan Consultation

Media Release Issued:
Wednesday, April 29, 2020
Share

Wellington Shire Council is developing a Community Infrastructure Plan and is undertaking research to understand the need for community buildings and places in Wellington.

Council wants to know what community buildings and places are used by the community to participate in activities like meetings, events and functions, exercise, community arts and culture, training, social recreation or hobbies and community education such as short courses. Buildings and places that support these activities include town halls, aquatic, leisure and sporting facilities, early years facilities, youth spaces, parks and public open space, libraries, neighbourhood houses, community centres, cultural facilities and senior citizens centres.  

As part of this research, Council wants to understand how individuals and families use community buildings in your local community and outside your local community. We would also like to understand how these buildings and places may need to change to better support you and your family and the wider community.  

With the COVID-19 pandemic, Council understands the community is unable to use community buildings and places as per usual, however we are continuing to develop the Community Infrastructure Plan in preparation for the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

You can play a role developing the Community Infrastructure Plan by:

The online survey will remain open and email submissions can be made until 5pm Monday 22 June 2020.

Online Community Forums

As we are currently not able to perform 'in person' consultation with the community, Council will hold several online Community Forums throughout May and June for different communities across Wellington Shire.

The forums will be capped at 10 – 12 people. Participants must register their interest and will be provided with a link to connect to the online forum. Each forum will run for just over 1 hour and will be facilitated by Michelle Read from Planning for Communities. Multiple forums will be held on the same day for each community.
