Ferguson Valley and Surrounds: This is your plan!

*UPDATE – This consultation has been extended until Friday, July 23.

The Shire of Dardanup has been working with members of the Ferguson Valley Advisory Group to prepare the first draft Ferguson Valley and Surrounds Community Facilities Plan.

The final Plan will serve as a broad scale master plan for all rural Shire areas that have not been covered in existing townsite facilities plans for Burekup and Dardanup. It excludes the Eaton-Millbridge area – which will be covered by a separate plan – as well as the future Wanju and Waterloo / East Picton Industrial Development areas. So if you are a resident from any rural areas within the Shire, we would love to hear from you!

The first draft Plan (Click here to view the plan) has been based on projects that have already been included in the Shire’s existing ten year plans as well as additional input through the Advisory Group. Council, together with the Ferguson Valley Advisory Group is now asking local residents to have a look over the draft plan and provide feedback.

The final Plan will serve as a blueprint to guide and prioritise development of future facilities in the Ferguson Valley and Surrounds – things like roads, buildings, recreation facilities, paths and trails, signage, public art, lighting, tourism amenities and green spaces.

Providing your input on Council decision-making has never been easier or more convenient with our exciting new online tool called ‘Connect’ which uses a community engagement platform called Social PinPoint.

Think Facebook, meets Pinterest meets Google Earth.

Now sharing your ideas, providing input, indicating your level of support and even discussing the future of your town with friends and neighbours will be as easy as posting a comment on social media.

Burekup and Dardanup residents used ‘Connect’ to finalise their Community Facilities Plans recently.

If you are not able to access ‘Connect’ on the internet, a hard copy of the draft Plan will also be available for viewing at the Dardanup Shire Office in Little Street, Dardanup and the Eaton Shire Office at 1 Council Drive, Eaton.

Submissions can be delivered to the Shire office or emailed to records@dardanup.wa.gov.au and close on Friday, July 23, 2021.
