Changes to Northern Grampians engagement program

Northern Grampians Shire Council will reschedule its Shire Vision 2041 community-engagement roadshow program.

It has also extended the closing date for an online survey until midnight, February 28.

Mayor Murray Emerson said the face-to-face program remained ‘still very much on track’ despite  the state’s sudden ‘circuit-breaker’ lockdown forcing it to postpone events scheduled for last week.

He said it was a shame the roadshow had to be postponed, but the safety of the community was paramount.

“We had to make the decision to put off the last two Shire Vision 2041 Roadshow sessions in Stawell and St Arnaud to comply with government directions and keep everyone safe,” he said. 

“It is a shame because we’ve had great turn-outs and input at our previous roadshow sessions, so to lose that momentum is a bit disappointing. 

“However, the Stawell and St Arnaud sessions will be rescheduled for as soon as we possibly can and I encourage everyone to jump online and fill out the survey so we can hear your thoughts about our region’s future.” 

Residents interested in attending the new sessions in St Arnaud or Stawell can find out more on the council’s website, or on social media.
