Preliminary Consultation 2019:
In 2019, Council undertook an extensive consultation with the community as part of the preliminary stages of the Study. The purpose of the consultation was to obtain feedback on draft landscape and character statements prepared.
The consultation was promoted through letters to all rural land owners, newspaper advertisements, Council’s e-newsletter, facebook page and website. Consultation activities included face to face workshops in Galston and Glenorie, drop in sessions and an online survey.
The feedback received from the community is outlined in the 2019 Feedback Summary Report and was considered by the consultants in progressing with the Study.
Exhibition of draft Rural Lands Study 2020:
The draft Rural Lands Study was exhibited to the community from mid-September until mid-November 2020. The exhibition was promoted through letters to all rural land owners, newspaper advertisements, Council’s e-newsletter, facebook page and website. Feedback was invited via submissions or an online survey.
A feedback summary report is being prepared to reflect the views and issues raised in response to the exhibition.
