Birchip Planning Project Commences

Birchip Planning Project Commences 

Publish Date: 20 July 2021

An important planning project for Birchip is about to launch to develop a comprehensive Birchip Park and Civic Precinct Plan in close consultation with the Birchip community.

The project will review key community and civic facilities, including the Shire Office, Senior Citizens Building, old Shamrock Hotel, Shire Hall and Birchip Park (excluding swimming pool) to identify whether the current facilities are able to provide what the community wants and needs into the future and the costs associated with bringing those facilities up to standard.

Research and community feedback will be collated to develop a plan for the future of the Birchip Park and Civic Precinct, delivering preliminary plans, a feasibility study and business case which would support future funding bids for development or improvements required.

Council will manage the project and have engaged Mach2 and Workshop Architecture to work in consultation with Council and the community as well as a Project Advisory Group, which will be established with members of the Birchip Community, and will be Chaired by Mayor Cr Daryl Warren.

Mayor Cr Daryl Warren continues to see great development in Birchip and emphasised the strong requirement for community input into this project.

“It is clearly a very exciting time in Birchip as the town continues to undertake transformative projects. In addition to the Safer Cumming Avenue Streetscape works and a range of improvements at the Recreation Reserve, members of the community now have the opportunity to have their say in how Birchip will continue to grow by attending a listening post with the project team, getting involved in workshops or by simply completing a survey. I encourage all Birchip residents to consider what their own needs are now and in the future”, he said.

Up to date information on the project, including timelines and how to get involved, will be available at www.buloke.vic.gov.au and distributed throughout Birchip.

The project is due for completion by November 2021.
