Council hosted an online Q and A session on 11 August as part of its community engagement process for the Rural Land Use Strategy.
The forum’s purpose was to support informed community engagement on the draft strategy. By exploring diverse perspectives on rural land use in Macedon Ranges Shire, the project team sought to create a deeper shared understanding of the issues and considerations that have informed the draft strategy.
Moderator Ross Allen led the panel discussion of key questions and themes raised by local landholders and other interested parties.
Panel members, representing different local interests, shared their perspectives on rural land use in the shire and implications of the draft strategy on local communities, businesses and the environment.
The session was recorded for those unable to attend yet still interested in these issues.
