Draft Active Women & Girls Strategy

Council in partnership with Sport and Recreation Victoria, has developed a 10 year Active Women & Girls Strategy specific to our local community. The development of this strategy is critical to address the current inequality that exists between female and male participation in physical activity, allowing for more girls and women to experience health benefits from regular active participation.

Please click here to download a copy of the draft Active Women and Girls Strategy.

Comments on this draft strategy can be made by close of business 10 April 2019 to shire@hepburn.vic.gov.au or in writing to Community Programs Officer, Hepburn Shire Council, PO Box 21, Daylesford 3460.

Review of General Local Law No. 2 – Community Amenity and Municipal Places and Designated Dog Areas

Council is reviewing its General Local Law No. 2 – Community Amenity and Municipal Places and designated dog areas to ensure they are relevant to and reflect the expectations of the community.

We are inviting the community to provide feedback on the current local law and designated dog areas to see what is or isn’t working well and what needs more or less control. This feedback will help Council draft a new Local Law and new dog designated areas that will be presented to the community for further comment later in the year.

The current General Local Law No. 2 regulates activities such as burning off, obstructions in public places, keeping animals, unsightly land, busking and the consumption of alcohol. Your feedback on the current Local Law is encouraged to ensure any future local law reflects the expectations of the community.

The current designated dog on leash areas are generally the main township CBD’s, Calembeen Park, Hepburn Mineral Springs and Lake Daylesford. Most areas within the Hepburn Shire are dog off leash areas. Your feedback on the current designated dog areas are encouraged to ensure any future designated areas reflect the expectations of the community.
