Baw Baw Shire Council has drafted a revised Road Management Plan and invites the community to review the document and provide feedback before consultation closes at 5.00pm on Friday 14 April 2017.

According to the Road Management Act, all Victorian Council's must review their Road Management Plan (RMP) every four years. Council's current RMP Version 5 was adopted on 10 July 2013, and the revised Version 6 has now been prepared for review.

Mayor of Baw Baw Shire Councillor Joe Gauci said it’s important for community members to take this opportunity to provide their feedback on the revised Road Management Plan while it is open for consultation.

“Council’s RMP establishes a framework around how we look after the road infrastructure and guides us in relation to maintaining the road and path network”, said the Mayor.

“The plan provides clarity to the community about the level of service provided in maintaining the roads and paths that Council manages, and commits us to an inspection and maintenance program, which is supported by an appropriate budget.

“Council currently maintains approximately 1,770 kilometres of roads which are used by our resident’s every day, so we want to hear from the community about the draft RMP to ensure it meets community expectations.”

Furthermore, anyone making a submission can request to be heard in support of their submission in person, or by a person acting on their behalf, at a designated Council meeting in the future, with the date to be advised.
