Work on the latest stage of the Emerald Beach Reserve Concept Plan will begin with a Community Information Session at Sandy Beach Public School on May 29 which is open to all interested members of the community.
“The opinions and ideas we gathered through community engagement last year will be used as a guide to help develop a preferred concept plan for the reserve,” said Glenn O’Grady, Council’s Director Sustainable Infrastructure (Acting). “There will also be a variety of avenues and consultation opportunities to ensure that everyone who wants to be involved is kept up to date on every stage as the plan moves forward.”
The Community Information Session at the school will:
- Provide information about the current consultation process and how to get involved or stay updated;
- Outline the structure and purpose of a proposed Community Reference Group;
- Explain how information will be communicated and feedback gathered; and
- Provide an opportunity for questions and informal discussions.
“The Community Reference Group will play a pivotal role in driving the process and helping create a preferred option that has wide community support, so we’d urge anyone interested in being a member to come along to the Community Information Session,” added Mr O’Grady.
The Community Information Session will run from 6pm-7.30pm at Sandy Beach Public School on May 29, 2018. All interested members of the community are welcome to attend.
