COUNCIL NEWS

Campaspe Shire Council has passed its community vision after last week's council meeting but postponed passing its 10-year capital works plan until next month's meeting.

Council also streamline­d its policy on community markets and use of sidewalks for commercial purposes in a move that Campaspe Mayor Chrissy Weller said would make it easier for farmers’ markets and night markets to be held on council grounds.

“We want to see the place buzzing,” Cr Weller said.

Council passed its community vision — ‘we are strong, supportive, vibrant and sustainabl­e’ — for the next 12 months.

Cr Rob Amos said there was scope to adjust council's implementa­tion of the vision, which is a Victorian Government legislatio­n requiremen­t to guide the council's policy over the next 12 months.

“I know the council administra­tion have done a lot of work on this,” Cr Amos said.

Councillor Tony Marwood proposed giving council more time to look over its 10-year capital works program, delaying a vote until council's August meeting.

“It’s important we have appropriat­e time as councillor­s to work through the 10-year capital works plan which suits our four-year plan,” Cr Marwood said.
