Locals in Moriac and Winchelsea Develop Community Plans

Winchelsea Community Planning working group

Surf Coast Shire Council is supporting Moriac and Winchelsea locals to develop three-year community plans.

Community plans are created by community members for their community. They contain a shared vision and actions that locals feel motivated to act upon themselves.

The Deans Marsh and district community were the first in the Surf Coast Shire to develop a community plan in 2019, and now its residents are seeing the benefits of the community-initiated projects being realised. This includes the Deans Marsh Community Dinner Program, the PowerMaD renewable energy project, local food initiatives and the establishment of the Deans Marsh Streetscapers, who are planning for streetscape improvements.

Working groups have been set up in Moriac and Winchelsea with community surveys about to start shortly. Other engagement opportunities will include focus groups and community dinners.
