$100,000 mas­ter­plan

Mansfield Courier - - News -

“Every­body’s in­put was se­ri­ously con­sid­ered.

“Any pre­vi­ous plans from MCHAC and MHS were all taken into ac­count by the con­sul­tants.”

In re­sponse to MHS’s con­cerns that they could be evicted from the site, Cr Wes­ten­dorp said that there is noth­ing in the Mas­ter Plan to have them move.

“There have been a num­ber of other plans for this site pre­vi­ously de­vel­oped, and I can as­sure you that these plans were also all con­sid­ered and con­trib­uted to this pro­posed con­cept mas­ter­plan,” Cr Wes­ten­dorp said.

Fur­ther­more, he pointed out that the full fund­ing for the plan­ning did not come from coun­cil funds.

“Coun­cil, state and fed­eral gov­ern­ment are con­tribut­ing equally to the project,” he said.

Coun­cil­lor Paul Sladdin en­dorsed the mayor’s state­ment.

“To the best of my knowl­edge, all of the $100,000 has come from Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Vic­to­ria,” he said.

At the time of pub­li­ca­tion, finance of­fi­cers from Mans­field coun­cil were un­avail­able for com­ment. The Mans­field Sta­tion Precinct Con­cept Mas­ter­plan has been re­leased by coun­cil for pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion and will be avail­able for pub­lic com­ment from Jan­uary 1 to Fe­bru­ary 15.
