Developing a Community Plan for Kew, Kendall, Herons Creek and Lorne

In November 2018, members of the community came together in a series of Community Think Tankworkshops to:

  • Tell us what they like about their community;
  • Draft a vision for the community;
  • Identify key themes for their community and
  • Identify actions that they would like to see delivered in the next 3-5 years.

A Community-Council Action Team (C-CAT) has been established and iscurrently working on a Draft Action Plan and a Community Plan for the area.Both documents will then go out to the community for further input and feedbackbefore being endorsed by Council.

There is still time to be a part of this part of this Action Team. If you would like to shape the future direction of your community, find out more and complete a nomination form.
