Posted Tuesday, 31 March 2015, 1.20pm

Have your say in the future of Campania. 

The Southern Midlands Council has committed to the preparation of the Campania Structure Plan 2015.  The purpose of this project is to develop a plan to guide the future growth of Campania and address key existing issues. It will include policies and recommendations that will be used to guide Council and government decisions in relation to future development and provision of services.  It will be important that the plan is in-line with community expectations and desires for the future.

In April and May Council will be holding three public workshops that all interested members of the community are invited to attend.  The workshops will be facilitated by project consultants JMG Engineers & Planners.

Want to attend a workshop?  Call Council on 6259 3011, or just show up!
