The public exhibition period for the revised streetscape designs for Chewton, Campbells Creek, Guildford, Newstead and Taradale has been extended. Feedback can now be provided until Sunday 26 August.

The second round of draft streetscape designs for five local towns are 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.

“The designs have generated some great discussion so far, so we’re giving the communities in these towns another two weeks to provide feedback,” said Gaynor Atkin, Manager Community Partnerships, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“All of the elements proposed in the designs are negotiable, so we really want to hear from people if there are elements they would like changed, feel should be done differently or support particular elements,” 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 are available 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 the same webpage or by email to info@mountalexander.vic.gov.au. Feedback may also be sent by post.

Feedback will be considered and designs are expected to be finalised in November.

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

For more information or to discuss your feedback on the designs contact Gaynor Atkin, Manager Community Partnerships, on 5471 1821.
