Have Your Say - Community Hub Strategy

Baw Baw Shire Council is committed to supporting the vibrancy and character of our local communities through good planning, provision of community focussed services and facilities, and through support for local people, groups and organisations.

We know that community spaces play a huge role in all these goals. That’s why we’ve developed a Community Hubs Strategy. It’s all about taking a fresh look at our community spaces: How they are used, how they can be developed and how they can best connect communities.

This strategy provides an opportunity for you, as a Baw Baw community member, to help define the role that spaces play in connecting, supporting and nurturing our unique communities.

The Community Hubs Strategy will help us best plan for future improvements to local spaces, including facility upgrades, improvements to existing public space, re-energising underused areas, and support for community-led initiatives. 

What’s involved

The strategy looks at Baw Baw Shire through eight different regions. It provides an outline of the region, an overview of the engagement undertaken and finally some key recommendations put to Council. In response to this, Council have created an ‘action plan’ that prioritises these recommendations and sets out a plan to achieve these priorities over the next five years.

Council would like to hear your feedback on the work completed so far, its proposed action plan and how to progress these recommendations.

The report - split into sections - can be downloaded from the 'Related Information' section at the foot of this page.
