Loddon Shire residents have until the end of next week to have their say on the future of their streetscapes.

With the public feedback period set to close on Sunday 13 March, Loddon Shire Manager Community Planning Tim Jenkyn, is encouraging interested community members to hop onto the About Town website.

Mr Jenkyn said between now and the end of next week presented a final opportunity to have a say about the future of Loddons’ streetscapes.

“We’ve had an average of 35 people per week looking at our website since the architectural plans were posted, but that doesn’t always translate to formal feedback,” Mr Jenkyn said.

“We’d like people to put pen to paper, keyboard to screen, to express their ideas and find out more about what they think of the proposed streetscapes.

“Residents have until the end of next week to comment on master plans for the development of the main street, town entries and key township areas in Bridgewater, Boort, Inglewood and Pyramid Hill.

“The plans are available to view online at www.abouttown.org and are also on display in key locations in each township.”

Mr Jenkyn said Council was looking forward to assessing community feedback on the plans in conjunction with Outlines Landscape Architecture.

“After the school holidays we’ll be looking at what the communities have said, and where appropriate we’ll bring that into the plans accordingly, with the entire process on track to wrap up next month.”
