belgrave town centre study – what do you think?

report from the roundtable – 25 may

The Belgrave Town Centre Study was undertaken to address a range of issues relating to the appearance and operation of the township. The study was informed by extensive community input and the report provides guidelines for key redevelopment sites, design ideas for improving public spaces and suggestions for addressing traffic and parking issues.

The report recommends some areas for rezoning, one being the key site of New Belgrave Motors to Business One. I do have some concerns about this recommendation as it means that many more types of businesses can use the site as of right, in the back of my mind was the long fight to keep McDonalds off a prominent site in our town.

The report also considers the Belgrave Bypass, as council has never had a formal position on this matter, the report does not support the construction of a bypass.

The report is out for public consultation for the next 6 weeks, I look forward to hearing what the community has to say. If you'd like to read the report click here and here (it's in two parts) and email any comments to
