Online Updates on Draft KFT Plan and Design Framework
Murrindindi Shire Council has received advice in relation to the work being undertaken by the State Government in response to the recommendations of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission (VBRC).
Work is nearing completion by the Department of Planning and Community Development in relation to bushfire mapping and local planning assessment. This information will inform and update the Interim Report that was prepared in response to the first draft of the Kinglake Ranges, Flowerdale and Toolangi (KFT) Plan and Design Framework.
Mayor Peter Beales said that an updated Draft KFT Plan and Design Framework will be developed and released for further consultation in the coming months incorporating both community feedback and any changes resulting from addressing VBRC recommendations.
"It remains essential that we get further input into the revised KFT Plan and adjust the Interim Report accordingly to ensure this planning strategy responds appropriately to addressing important fire safety measures and also provide for a range of sustainable land use options for the future for the area".
"When the plan is finalised it will be used to guide decision making by Murrindindi Shire Council and Victorian Government agencies for the region over the next fifteen years," said Cr Beales.
Residents are reminded that updates on the progress with the plan can be obtained on-line. Alternatively, inquiries regarding the draft KFT Plan can be made by emailing email@example.com or contacting Murrindindi Shire Council's Planning Department on 5772 0333.
