Little Lake Boort Master Plan

Published on 17 November 2016

Loddon Shire Council is working with the Boort community to prepare a 10-year master plan for Little Lake Boort. The master plan will help guide the planning and development of parkland, bushland and infrastructure around the lake.

There are a number of ways you can be involved in the project but Council is particularly keen to see pictures and sketches of examples of how you would like the lake environs to look in 20 years time.

Council and the Boort Development Committee want to know what residents and visitors want the lake’s parklands and bushland to look like.

“These images and comments can be attached to the ‘ideas wall’ in BRIC and will provide a visual representation of what we want the lake to look like”, said Allan Stobaus, Council’s Community Support Manager.

“Do we want modern and more natural park furniture, do we want to regenerate bushland areas for wildlife, do we need more places for young people to gather, do we need interpretive signage?”

Rod Poxon, Secretary of the Boort Development Committee said, “if each member of the community invests just 30 minutes on the project then we will have a thorough understanding of the community’s aspirations for the lake and its environs.”

There are other ways you can be involved in the project. You can complete an online survey at www.research.net/r/LLBoortMasterPlanComSurvey or you can collect a hard copy survey from BRIC, or by ringing Carmel Pethick, Council’s Community Development Officer on 5494 1253.
