Members to see other member's comments

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari said, "This consultation will enable council to gather information from property owners, around issues they are currently experiencing, such as flooding, traffic, dust, lighting and pedestrian access."

"The online engagement platform will allow community members to see each other's comments and add to the discussion, similar to how an in person engagement session would operate, we encourage all impacted residents and ratepayers, as well as the wider community, to provide feedback and participate in the engagement." Cr Tessari said.

Potential progress

Following this consultation period, a report outlining the feedback received and the potential to progress the project with detailed investigation and further community engagement will be considered at a council meeting in early 2022. If supported by council and the community, this would be the largest special charge scheme undertaken in Bass Coast.
