About

Council is working with the Tawonga community to prepare plans which illustrate, cost and prioritise:

  • Improved streetscape treatment of the Kiewa Valley Highway, including a safer pedestrian connection to Tawonga Pioneer Memorial Park, pedestrian pathways extending along the highway and integrated landscape treatments to give the Tawonga township an improved sense of destination.
  • Improvements to Tawonga Pioneer Memorial Park, including upgraded and additional facilities and infrastructure.

Project Update - Survey Results | 4 November 2022

Thank you to the Tawonga community for reviewing the draft Tawonga Better Places concept plans and for providing feedback to the plans.

We received 132 responses to the survey and great insight into the views of the community.

In response to four questions, survey results showed strong support from respondents on the proposed location of the pump track, proposed use of the Scout Hall site as open space and the proposed number and location of car parks.

Respondents were clearly passionate about moving the proposed pedestrian crossing north of the Tawonga General Store. A number of respondents suggested taking another look at the need to have a formalised crossing point at all, and instead considering a speed limit change to better manage crossing safety.

Other key feedback included additional seating and shelter next to the pump track, improving footpaths, and recognising the important history of Tawonga.
