Have your say on the pool season

What has been your experience at Council’s public pools this pool season? Complete a survey and let us know what’s been good and what could be done better at our pools at Castlemaine, Harcourt, Maldon and Newstead.

Your feedback helps us understand what can be improved at our pools and also lets us know what is working well.

Surveys were available at each of the pool kiosks (pools have now closed for the season) or you can complete the pool season survey online.

The survey may be completed online until Saturday 31 March.

Communications and engagement survey - now closed

During consultation on the Council plan we heard that people wanted better communication and more engagement opportunities with Council. We are developing a communications plan to keep you informed about our programs and services, and improve the way we communicate with you.

We recently ran a survey asking how people would like to receive information and how we can better engage with the community. The survey closed at midnight on Sunday 11 March.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. The prize draw for five $100 grocery vouchers will occur on Wednesday 14 March. Winners will be notified by email, and published in the Midland Express on 20 March. Council will release the results of the survey later in the year.

New play space for Victory Park - now closed

Council is developing a creative play space at Victory Park in Castlemaine, where people of all ages and abilities can play, explore, socialise and connect.
