Have say on town fu­ture

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

MUN­DAR­ING Res­i­dents and Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion is host­ing a fo­rum to con­sider a draft mas­ter­plan for Mun­dar­ing town cen­tre.

As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Tom Johns said the Shire of Mun­dar­ing had re­quested com­mu­nity feed­back on the plan by 4pm on De­cem­ber 23.

“Our fo­rum is a chance for those liv­ing in Mun­dar­ing and Ma­hogany Creek to ask ques­tions of the con­sul­tants who pro­duced the plan.

“This is the best way to make an in­formed con­tri­bu­tion to the de­bate,” he said.

The plan presents a vi­sion of how Mun­dar­ing could de­velop over the next 20 years.

“Sug­gested changes are very sig­nif­i­cant – changes to zon­ing could see peo­ple liv­ing in the town cen­tre in ac­com­mo­da­tion that is very dif­fer­ent to what we have now,” Mr Johns said.

Vice- pres­i­dent Kate McHardy said Great East­ern High­way had split the town in half for many years.

“Mak­ing Ni­chol Street an im­por­tant north- south con­nec­tor is a con­tro­ver­sial idea that de- serves se­ri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion,” she said.

As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Tom Bur­bidge viewed the plan as a way to make Mun­dar­ing a bet­ter place to live, work and en­joy.

The draft mas­ter­plan is avail­able to view on the shire web­site and in hard copy at shire li­braries.

The free fo­rum will be held from 7.20pm on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 6 at Mun­dar­ing Shar­ing, 3 Craigie Place, Mun­dar­ing.

Call 9295 1710 to re­quest a seat or email mdgtv@ high­way1. com. au.

Tom Johns, Kate McHardy and Tom Bur­bidge are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to have a say on the mas­ter­plan.
