Growing Thurgoona - Community Conversations
We had a fantastic response from the community on Saturday 15 September with more than 200 people coming along and visiting us at Thurgoona Plaza for the Growing Thurgoona – Community Conversations. There were plenty of ideas and lots of information shared by all and a very positive event. Thank you to all who attended and made the effort to participate.
The Thurgoona Growth Area encompasses more than 4,500 hectares and accommodates a population of approximately 9,500 people. This population is forecast to grow to 17,500 in 2036 and to 50,000 (including Wirlinga) in the next 50 years.
AlburyCity conducted extensive consultation in 2012 when preparing the Thurgoona Wirlinga Precinct Structure Plan to guide the future growth and development of the area.
We’re now continuing the conversation with our community (including existing and new residents, business owners and visitors) by creating opportunities for people to provide feedback. By participating in ongoing conversations, we can all work together to plan how the growth of the community will be managed in the years ahead.
If you couldn't make it on 15 September, don’t worry, there’ll be many more opportunities to get involved. You can give us your feedback right now, simply by completing our online survey which is open until Friday 5 October, 2018.
The Strategic Planning Team will collate all the information and feedback received and present this information back to both the Councillors and community in the coming weeks.
This information will inform a planned future review of the Thurgoona Wirlinga Precinct Structure Plan (previously adopted in 2012) that seeks to guide the future growth and development of the area.
The Strategic Planning Team is here to help and is available by email, by phone on 6023 8285, or you can call into the AlburyCity Customer Service counter in our Kiewa Street offices.
We thank you for your interest and look forward to working together to make Thurgoona-Wirlinga an even better place to call home.
