ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATION COLES BAY – SURVEY (CLICK HERE)

Council is proposing to convert a few parking bays in the Harold St trailer car park to an Electric Vehicle Charging facility.

Glamorgan Spring Bay Council recognises the right of the community to be informed and have input into decisions which affect their lives.

We are inviting the community and key interest groups to provide feedback.

We have developed an online survey that is available until 30 September 2022.

If you would like a hard copy of the survey, these can be collected from the Council or posted to you upon request.

Please share your thoughts and ideas with us regarding Electric Vehicle Charing Station we look forward to hearing from you.

Council is seeking comment on a proposal to change Esplanade West Triabunna into a one-way traffic street.  The section is to flow from Melbourne Street to the RSL Club carpark near Vicary Street past the Eldercare Units.

Access off Vicary Street into the RSL Club car park will still be available but no further. This change to a one-way section of road was promoted in the Triabunna Tomorrow Plan.

This proposal is to reduce heavy vehicle traffic (i.e. Semi-trailers) that are damaging the road surface and also address safety concerns around the blind corner where visibility is poor. We encourage you to fill out this survey as the feedback on this consultation will assist Council in its ultimate decision.  Council will consider all issues raised.

The survey will run for the length of June and Council will collate the information in early July and Council will then decide whether to make the change or not.

The circled area shows the access into the RSL car park and traffic can still enter this area via Vicary Street and Esplanade West.s

 

The above diagram shows the section from Melbourne Street to the RSL Car Park which will become one-way.

 

Glamorgan Spring Bay Council and the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) have engaged Inspiring Place to prepare a master plan that would address a range of issues and provide future direction for the foreshore.

We are inviting the community and key interest groups to provide comments on the key findings outlined in the draft report.

The rationale for these recommendations is provided in the main report. There are references in the questions that refer to the master plans and site concept plans provided in the main report on Council’s website

We have developed an online survey that is available until 5pm Tuesday 28 June 2022 

Please share your thoughts and ideas with us regarding the Orford Foreshore Master Plan, we look forward to hearing from you.

In order to promote and continue to improve the good governance within Glamorgan Spring Bay Council, the Communication and Engagement Framework (‘The Framework’) has been developed.

The Framework incorporates proven best practise Frameworks in Australia. The Framework is based on International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) spectrum, which is used globally as a guide for community engagement. The Framework aligns with Council’s strategic plan 2020 – 2029 and reflects the purpose, vison, values, and objectives of that plan.

The Framework outlines how Council will communicate and engage with the community, as well as key initiatives and actions that we will take to improve communication and
engagement between Council, stakeholders and the community.

Key elements addressed in the Framework are:

  • Key Communication and Engagement Objectives
  • Principles that Guide the way we communicate and engage
  • Why we communicate and engage?
  • Who we communicate and engage with?
  • How we communicate and engage
