    Council is developing a Masterplan to guide the future direction, planning and potential improvements to the Blaxland Town Centre over the next 15-20 years.

    The master planning process helps Council to prioritise projects that enhance the function, character and appearance of town centres progressively as funding becomes available. The process involves significant community consultation to inform the best possible urban environment and to improve the way town centres function.

The material from the workshop is now available on this Have Your Say site for review and comment until 18 December 2017.
