Burdekin residents have another four weeks to have their say on the future of their community.
Burdekin Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Ken Holt said the extension of the plan’s community input phase had been made possible by the delaying of the local government elections.
“Now the elections have been moved to April 28, we have been able to extend the deadline for community input until Friday, March 9,” he said.
“We want as many people as possible to have input into the future planning of this region as this plan will set the vision of the Shire for the next 10 years.
“Since launching the survey in December, Council has had responses from about 80 people, but we would welcome more.”
Mr Holt said responses to the survey would be used to prepare a draft Community Plan which would ultimately influence all other planning in the Shire until 2022.
Residents can access the survey and the accompanying summary paper at the Council Customer Service Centre in Young Street, Ayr; the Burdekin Library in Ayr and Home Hill; by downloading a copy from the Council’s web site www.burdekin.qld.gov.au; and online via the Council’s web site or Facebook page.
