MEDIA RELEASE - Glenelg Shire 2040 to host pop up sessions

29 January 2020

The Glenelg Shire 2040 conversation is continuing and residents are invited to attend a pop up engagement session in their township this February to have their say on what the community’s vision should look like for the next 20 years.

The Glenelg Shire 2040 project team will be visiting the communities of Tyrendarra, Cape Bridgewater, Nelson and Heywood throughout the month of February to gather valuable feedback and ideas from local residents.

Engagement sessions will take place at iconic events, such as the Heywood Wood, Wine and Roses, and at standalone community workshops.

Glenelg Shire 2040 project lead Cherie Arnott said she was hoping to chat to residents of all ages across the shire to best gather long-term needs, hopes and priorities.

“We want to hear what you love about the Glenelg Shire, what challenges and opportunities you think our community will face between now and 2040 and your big ideas for making the shire an even better place to live, study, work and play,” she said.

“Since the 2040 Event Launch in September last year we have spoken to residents at consultation sessions in Dartmoor, Narrawong, Digby and Casterton on a range of topics such as the environment, transport and innovation.

“We look forward to chatting to community members across Tyrendarra, Cape Bridgewater, Nelson and Heywood this February to discuss the topics important to them and hear their thoughts on what we should be investing in for the next 20 years.

“These ideas will then be used to shape the Glenelg Shire 2040 Community Plan.”

Ms Arnott said no RSVPs were necessary for the workshop events in Nelson and Cape Bridgewater.

“The workshops are designed to be flexible, so pop in anytime during the workshop times to have your say,” she said.
