Clunes Community Plan 2015
Hepburn Shire Council works with communities to produce community plans that describe what residents love about their town and what they would like to see happen in the future! Community plans can be used by local community groups to advocate for all kinds of projects, attract funding and members of your community will have a chance to present ideas to Council.
The 2015 Clunes Community Plan review began with a community survey asking to residents what they valued about Clunes and what priorities from the 2012 plan were still relevant for their community. Community drop in sessions were also held and a draft plan was developed focussing on areas of most importance to the community in 2015.
The draft was presented to the community at the Clunes Open House Dinner on 28 July 2015. A community planning meeting was then held at the Warehouse Clunes on 23 August 2015 to finalise the plan. After compiling the final Community Plan community members presented their vision for Clunes to Hepburn Shire Council and the plan was noted at the September 2015 Council Meeting.
Clunes community members Jim Robinson, Phil Taig and Peter Hanrahan also developed a draft foresight document of what Clunes might look like in 2030. This plan was not ratified by the Clunes community but provides insight into future possibilities for the town.
Everyone is welcome to participate!
An important part of the community planning process is the participation of a diverse cross section of our community. We encourage you to be involved in contributing your ideas. If you don’t like meetings that’s ok, you can provide your feedback on draft plans directly to Council’s Community and Cultural Development Officer, Kate Gerritsen by phone or email on 5321 6126 or firstname.lastname@example.org
