50 members of the local community attended Bass Coast Shire Councilís Community Forum in Kilcunda on Wednesday 11 September.

The forum included group discussions, which allowed people to focus on specific areas of interest to them and their local community. At the Kilcunda forum, groups discussed a wide range of planning and environmental issues such as indigenous vegetation, wind farms and water conservation strategies. Traffic and pedestrian safety were also issues of considerable concern to those present.

Mayor of Bass Coast Shire Council, Cr John Gains said that he had found the forum interesting, informative and enjoyable.

"This forum was particularly enjoyable because of the very positive and constructive way in which the community presented their issues and concerns," he said.

"Council getting out there into smaller centres like Kilcunda and talking face-to-face to residents is exactly what these Community Forums are all about."

Community Forums are held on the second Wednesday of every second month and provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about the broad range of Council functions and activities. They enable citizens to raise issues face-to-face with Councillors and staff, and hear othersí points of view about issues all in an informal setting.

The next Community Forum will be held in Cape Paterson on Wednesday 13 November.
