Your Community 2030 – drop-in sessions

Funded by the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund, Central Goldfields Shire Council is working with residents to develop 10 year community plans that reflect the uniqueness and priorities of the eight communities and districts of Maryborough, Bealiba, Carisbrook, Dunolly, Talbot, Majorca, Bet Bet and Timor.

Throughout the months of October to December, Council is inviting feedback from the community on what is needed to make their community a great place to live – now and into the future.

Your Community 2030 drop-in sessions are open to everyone of all ages.  It will be a relaxed setting where you can read more about the project and talk one-on-one with project staff and share your ideas.
