Loddon Shire residents have given their support for a proposed Reconciliation Action Plan, following a survey of the community last month.

Eighty-nine residents completed the survey, which was available to all community members, either via online or in hard copy.

"There has been overwhelming positive results for the support of Council developing an entry level Reconciliation Action Plan," Council’s Director Community Wellbeing Wendy Gladman said.

"Overall 77 per cent of people voted yes to the Reconciliation Action Plan’s development. In this figure, 83.8 per cent of women supported the Plan’s development and 59.3 per cent of men.

"Council will now be proceeding with the development of the Plan."

Reconciliation Action Plans generally guide organisations in building greater awareness, understanding and respectful relationships between our wider community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
