In 2017 Council formed a Steering Committee to ensure community representation was included in the planning works for these projects.
The Maldon Streetscape Steering Committee comprises representatives from local traders, residents, heritage and community groups, Maldon Community Bank, State Government and Council.
Council managed the community-led project. There were many steps along the way but work quickly ramped up to deliver these projects following the Victorian Government’s commitment of $4.5 million towards these works. This is a significant investment to preserve and enhance the heritage features of historic Maldon.
