Have your say on revised streetscape designs

Streetscape of Chewton at Red Hill Hotel

Have your say on streetscape designs for Taradale, Guildford, Chewton, Campbells Creek and Newstead.

Thursday 26 July 2018

The second draft streetscape designs for five local towns will soon be available for public comment. The designs consider things like the placement of trees and plantings, traffic management, pedestrian safety and creating social spaces.

The initial streetscape designs were based on the priorities identified in community plans for Chewton, Campbells Creek, Guildford, Newstead and Taradale. The designs have been revised following a number of community workshops and public consultations.

“We received some great ideas and comments from the first round of consultations in June,” said Gaynor Atkin, Manager Community Partnerships, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“Over the next two weeks, we would now like to hear what the community think about the changes we have made and encourage everyone to take a look at the revised designs and let us know if we’ve captured their vision for their town,” said Ms Atkin.

Council has budgeted $100,000 to begin implementing streetscape designs in its 2018/19 Annual Budget, and will seek external funding for some of the larger elements of each design as required.

The revised draft streetscape designs can be viewed online at www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/HaveYourSay as well as various locations in each of the five towns.

Feedback on the revised draft streetscape designs can be sent via an online survey at www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/HaveYourSay or by email to info@mountalexander.vic.gov.au. Feedback may also be sent by post.

The public exhibition period for the revised draft streetscape designs is open from Monday 30 July to Sunday 12 August.

Designs are expected to be finalised in October.

Council is also finalising streetscape design guidelines for Castlemaine and Maldon as part of a separate project.
