Pyrenees Futures in Beaufort

Monday 03 July 2017, 11:55 AM

It’s time to discuss Beaufort’s future!

Pyrenees Shire Council invites you to get involved and work with us to develop the Beaufort Township Framework Plan.

The plan is a spatial planning document Council is producing with funding support from the Victorian Planning Authority. The document aims to deliver long term planning policies that will guide future development, and urban design guidelines to help deliver an even more people-friendly town centre.

Following a well-attended stall at the Beaufort Easter Market, Council will be running a day of community sessions on Tuesday 30 May. This will include a community workshop with catering provided at the Beeripmo Centre from 5pm, and drop-in sessions around town throughout the day.

RSVPs for the community workshop are appreciated for catering purposes, via before Thursday 25 May.

You can also complete a five-question survey here or in hard copy at the Beaufort Community Resource Centre.

After May, Council and planning consultants Hansen Partnership will produce a draft plan based on community views and other data that will be placed on community exhibition later in 2017.

Council CEO Jim Nolan said the plan was being produced at an important time for Beaufort.

“It is really timely for Council to work with our community on a plan that considers the issues and opportunities that are front of mind in Beaufort now so we can address them over the next 5-10 years,” Mr Nolan said.

“We are really keen to hear from our community on the things that make Beaufort a distinctive, special town; as well as suggestions from people that live in, work in or visit Beaufort on what they would do if they were designing Beaufort’s future,” he said.

“We’ve already heard some great ideas from our community and it’s vital that we hear from people of all ages and backgrounds during this process be it online, at our workshops or drop in sessions.”

The Beaufort Framework Plan is part of the Pyrenees Futures project, through which Council will work with our community to produce nine framework plans for our major townships.

We acknowledge the people past and present of the Wadawurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, and Djab Wurrung tribes, whose land forms the Pyrenees Shire. We pay our respect to the customs, traditions and stewardship of the land by the elders and people of these tribes.
