Romsey Streetscape Project Feedback FORUM Night


Romsey Streetscape Project Community Forum No. 3 was held on Thursday 21st July 2016 at the Romsey Community Hub. Concept plans for the project were presented by RRBATA and Macedon Ranges Shire Council.

I explained the project’s background so far and emphasised the great efforts of the working group members who have worked hard in the concept development phase. Geoff Caddick and Yvonne Caddick (Caddick Designs) were present to answer questions relating to the plans on display.

Leanne Davey (Economic Development and Tourism) and Shane Power (Manager Engineering Infrastructure and Projects) spoke about the works undertaken so far and including the development of the plans. MRSC Mayor, Cr. Graham Hackett, explained Council’s 2016-2017 budget allocation ($150,000) to the project and the process for the Regional Development Victoria (RDV) funding application currently underway.

An additional opportunity will be available to peruse plans and chat with Romsey Streetscape working group members tomorrow morning, Saturday 30th July, outside the Romsey IGA.

The plans will also be available for perusal and comment as follows:
Romsey Community Hub
Romsey Community Bank (Bendigo Bank)
Verdure Bistro
Romsey Online (

See attached a PDF version of the plan.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries.

Kind regards
