Future Morwell community consultation opens

Posted on 7 April 2017


Latrobe City Council is looking for community feedback on the draft Future Morwell Revitalisation Plan. The draft plan will be open for community consultation for 10 weeks until 6 June 2017.

Latrobe City Council’s mayor, Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan, said receiving the thoughts and opinions of local residents was paramount to being able to ensure the future direction of the town is what the community wants.

“We know this draft plan will generate lots of discussion and debate. We want to be able to engage with the community around what they actually want to see in their town.  We would encourage all those with an interest in Morwell and the way it can be revitalised to have their say by using a short feedback survey,” Cr O’Callaghan said.

“Over the coming weeks the community will have targeted opportunities to provide feedback on components of the Revitalisation Plan, starting this week with broad and immediate thoughts and reflections on the Future Morwell Urban Design Revitalisation Plan. Details of these will be published on our Facebook page and on our website,” Cr O’Callaghan concluded.

The draft plan documents are available for viewing on Latrobe City Council’s website at www.latrobe.vic.gov.au/futuremorwell or visit the Pop Up Shop at 170 Commercial Road, Morwell, next to Subway, to look at a hard copy.

The Pop Up Shop will be open until 6 June for people to call in for more information. Visitors to the space will be able to talk to officers, complete online surveys and review the draft plans.

The Pop Up Shop is located at 170 Commercial Road, Morwell and is open weekdays from 9am to 5pm until 6 June, or by appointment.

For all enquiries, phone the Community Resilience Team on 1300 367 700.

Please note that the documents on the website are extremely large.
