Feedback for proposed Reconciliation Action Plan closing soon

Published on 21 June 2018

Council is reminding residents that feedback regarding a proposed Reconciliation Action Plan for Loddon Shire closes soon.

Residents that haven’t had the chance to provide their thoughts around the proposed plan are encouraged to fill out the Reconciliation Action Plan survey by 5pm Friday 29 June.

The survey can be completed online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/GRDPK9V 

Hard copies are also available from the Boort Resource and Information Centre (BRIC), Pyramid Hill Neighbourhood House, Inglewood Community Neighbourhood House, Wedderburn Community House and Council’s Serpentine and Wedderburn offices.

Mayor Cheryl McKinnon thanked those that had already filled out the survey and encouraged residents who had yet to fill out the survey to make sure they did so.

“Council wants to hear from as many people in the community as possible regarding their thoughts about the development of a Reconciliation Action Plan,” Cr McKinnon said.

“This feedback from our community is vital as it is an important first step in the process towards the possible 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.

For more information regarding the Reconciliation Action Plan survey, please contact Council’s Policy and Strategy Officer Christine Walters on 5494 1239 or email cwalters@loddon.vic.gov.au
