Comment sought on Martley Street trial closure

20 January 2014

At its ordinary meeting in November 2013, Alpine Shire Council resolved to trial a 6-month closure (10am – 2pm school days) of the section of Martley Street adjacent to Porepunkah Primary School, using lockable steel gates.

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1989, Council is required to seek public submissions on the proposed 6-month trial closure.

Alpine Shire Council Chief Executive Office Dave Barry said that this is the next step in the process. “This procedure is a requirement of the Local Government Act and Council will consider all submissions at the March Council meeting,” he said.

Council’s intention to trial a time-based closure of Martley Street, from 10am – 2pm on school days, is open for public comment until Wednesday, 26 February.

Submissions can be hand delivered or posted to:

Att: Drew Carey
Alpine Shire Council
PO Box 139
Bright VIC 3741

Any person making a submission may request that they or their representative is heard at a meeting of the Council or of a committee determined by the Council, in support of their submission. The request to be heard, and the names of the persons or representatives, must be clearly specified in the written submission. Council will notify those requesting to be heard of the day, time and place of the meeting.

Should the proposed trial go ahead, Council has committed to put in place a process designed to measure community feedback on the time-based road closure.
