Harrietville: Our Future, the draft of the Strategic Master Plan for Harrietville, is now available for comment. Harrietville: Our Future outlines key actions and priorities that collectively will strengthen the Harrietville community. The document has been developed as part of the Communities Adapting to Climate Change project, funded by the Victorian Government.
Harrietville: Our Future is the result of many hours of discussion within the Harrietville Community Forum (HC), in conjunction with the Alpine Shire Council, applying the priorities raised by the community during the nine community discussion sessions held in October and November 2015 and identified in the 2014 community survey to the project goal of improving sustainability and resilience of the Harrietville community.
The document defines what resilience and sustainability means for the Harrietville community. It then presents actions, separated into themes that collectively improve resilience and sustainability as it is defined for the Harrietville community.
The HCF, Parks Victoria, Alpine Shire Council, and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning have all been involved in the development of Harrietville: Our Future. Only actions that are able to be undertaken by people or organisations involved in the Communities Adapting to Climate Change project are included in Harrietville: Our Future so as to ensure that actions are committed to and delivered by the relevant parties.
Harrietville: Our Future is open for comment until 22nd June 2016. The document is available here.
Submissions can be made by contacting Michelle Kent at email@example.com or on 5755 0555, or by responding to a short survey here.
Michelle will also be available at the Harrietville Hall Monday 6th June from 7pm – 8:30pm and on Thursday 9th June from 1.30pm – 3.00pm for people to drop in to discuss the document or the wider Communities Adapting to Climate Change project.
