Council officers will now consider and review each of these submissions and verbal briefings, and prepare two reports to Council. This includes a conversation report which will outline the consultation process, contents of submissions and Council officers’ responses to each of the concerns raised, and a Council report that will make a recommendation to Council on the proposal.
All submissions, verbal briefings and Council officers’ reports will then be considered by Council at a future Council Meeting at the earliest in June 2022. Council officers have also commissioned additional technical expert reports to appropriately analyse and respond to matters raised in submissions.
Mayor, Councillor Kim O’Keeffe thanked each of the residents and community members who made a verbal presentation to Council.
“Council officers are reviewing each of the submissions and verbal briefings to prepare reports that will be essential to the process of this proposal,” she said.
“Council will address this decision most likely in June at the earliest and subject to the completion of further work.”
As part of the process, Council officers may be in contact with submitters to clarify any concerns raised in their submissions or verbal briefings. A copy of the recording of the verbal briefing can be found on Council’s Shaping Greater Shepp website at Shaping Greater Shepparton
