Community information session to help preparedness in Halls Gap


Northern Grampians Shire Council has been funded to undertake a series of capacity building activities to enhance community emergency preparedness and resilience in Halls Gap at both the residential and business level.

The project seeks to engage a number of key stakeholders including the residential community, Halls Gap and surrounding businesses, those who work in Halls Gap, and those absentee residents who are landowners

yet reside outside of the immediate area.

Following feedback received from the ongoing survey, council is holding an information session for people who live and work or conduct business in the Halls Gap area.

The community engagement information session will provide further detail and seek feedback about the planned activities within the Safer Together funded Halls Gap Community Preparedness and Resilience Project.

Northern Grampians Shire Council Mayor, Cr Murray Emerson, said this next step of the project is vital to ensure the proposed activities align with the needs of the community.

“I encourage everyone in Halls Gap to come along to the information session and provide their feedback on this plan,” he said.

“This project is all about keeping the community safe in times of disaster or hardship and that cannot be done properly without valuable community input.”

If you’d like to attend, please register your interest via the project webpage and select either the 1pm or 6pm session to be conducted on 17 March 2021 at the Halls Gap Hall, Halls Gap Hub Precinct.
