Longwarry Next for Council Pop-Up

Baw Baw Shire Council’s second Council pop-up is heading to Longwarry on Tuesday 18 June.

Council pop-up is a rural outreach program which aims to increase Council’s presence in a range of areas across the municipality, particularly those further from major townships.

Following the success of the first Council pop-up in Thorpdale held in April, Longwarry has been identified as the next location.


Longwarry Council pop-up

  • When: 3.00pm – 7.00pm on Tuesday 18 June
  • Where: Longwarry Hall, 14 Kennedy Street

Opening times have been extended into the evening to be more flexible around resident’s school and work commitments.

Later in the year the program will also travel to Neerim, Willow Grove and Rawson. Residents in these communities and surrounding areas will be able to drop-in and talk with Councillors and members of the Executive team about all matters affecting them and their community.

As stated by Mayor Cr Mikaela Power

“Conversations with our community are one of the most important things we can do. We want to hear how Council can make a difference to Longwarry and surrounds. We hope to see you there!”

As stated by West Ward Cr Keith Cook

“I highly encourage residents living in and around Longwarry to come along and have a chat with us. We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas, as well as talk through any local issues important to you.”

As stated by CEO Alison Leighton

“It was great to see our first Council pop-up take place in Thorpdale last month. Our visit sparked a lot of positive and productive conversations, and the opportunity to chat was well received. This program is all about making Council more accessible to communities all over our Shire and we’re pleased to be able do this again soon in Longwarry. Please join us for a cuppa on 18 June and help continue the conversation.”
