Community feedback wanted

The draft Community Infrastructure Plan, Sporting Infrastructure Plan and Early Years Infrastructure Plan were developed following an extensive research and consultation process. Wellington Shire Council Mayor Garry Stephens said the plans provided a blueprint of current and future needs for the regions much-loved community facilities.

Cr Stephens said, "The research and consultation found that while there are generally adequate community and sporting facilities in Wellington Shire, some investment is certainly needed in our early years facilities to meet growing demand in the coming years, I encourage people to read through these draft plans and provide their feedback, which will then be utilised in forming the final plans."
