Community invited to attend forum on retaining wall requirements for Baw Baw Shire
Council is set to host a community forum to provide key stakeholders and the wider community with a better understanding of retaining wall requirements across the Shire.
Hosted by Mayor Danny Goss, the forum will outline guidelines and requirements for retaining walls that will impact the streetscape of future residential neighbourhoods in Warragul and Drouin. Alongside the Mayor will be a panel of subject matter experts who will take part in a Q&A discussion where the community are invited to join in the conversation and ask questions directly to the panel members.
Community groups, developers, and interested residents are invited to join Council for a community forum on retaining walls
Council to provide brief overview
The forum will include a presentation from Council regarding the updated requirements on retaining walls including height guidelines, definitions, and their purpose. Council will also provide a brief overview of the Draft Warragul and Drouin Design Guidelines followed by the retaining wall Q&A with panel members.
The forum is set to complement the current Warragul and Drouin Design Guidelines public consultation opportunity. As part of the consultation, Council is seeking feedback on retaining walls and the impact this may have on future residential land in Drouin and Warragul.
Informing the wider community
Mayor Cr Danny Goss said, "The Warragul and Drouin Precinct Structure Plans, both introduced in 2014, contain requirements and guidelines that impact retaining walls. This forum is an educational session to inform the wider community of these requirements and allow the opportunity for the community to raise any questions or concerns they may have to our panel of experts."
"I know our community has strong opinions on retaining wall matters and this is the time to raise them. I encourage you all to join us at the forum and take part in the discussion. Be sure to register your attendance through Eventbrite and come prepared with your burning questions."
Take part in the discussion
The forum will take place between 1:00 and 3:00pm on Friday 12 November at the Fountain Room, West Gippsland Arts Centre. Bookings are essential for the forum and can be made via the Eventbrite page. The forum will run in accordance with current DHHS regulations. For further information on the community forum please contact Council via email at email@example.com.
