PEOPLE can have a say on a draft concept plan for Patterson River at a public forum event or by completing an online survey.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is hosting the “Open House” event at Patterson Lakes Community Centre on Thursday 24 May.
“We are presenting to the community a draft concept plan with around 50 options for development or improvement,” DELWP land and built environment program manager John Downs said.
“The survey allows the community the opportunity to select their preferred options in both upper and lower project precincts.
“In the Lower Precinct, the options include a fenced picnic area, a non-powered only boating zone, a multi-use path, and improvements to parking arrangements.
“In the Upper Precinct, options include upgrading old buildings and the access road, adding benches along the north side of the river, and extending the jetty at the launching ramp.”
See engage.vic.gov.au/patterson-river-concept-plan to see the draft concept plan and complete the survey between 11-27 May.
The Open House survey will be hosted by the DELWP on Thursday 24 May, 11am-4pm, at Patterson Lakes Community Centre (meeting room 1), 54-70 Thompson Road, Patterson Lakes.
The final concept plan will be released at the end of June.
