Community Consultation is your opportunity to provide input on a range of Council projects and activites and to be involved in Council's decision making processes.
Wattle Range Council is assisting all of the townships within the Council area to develop Ten Year Community Town Plans.
With the assistance of the Rendelsham Sports & Progress Association members, an initial draft for the Rendelsham plan has been developed.
Council staff will be available to take feedback on the draft plan at an initial community consultation session between the hours of 6 pm and 8.30 pm on Tuesday, 7 March 2017 in the Rendelsham Community Hall.
The draft plan is available to download here or alternatively hardcopies can be collected from the Millicent Council Office.
The initial stage of a review of kerbside waste collections is underway, with selected residents and ratepayers receiving correspondence from Council regarding their service.
Residents who do not currently receive a kerbside collection, but are adjacent to those that do or within close proximity will be offered a new Council service. The cost of a Council collection is significantly less than a private arrangement, offering a saving to residents.
Several smaller townships including Coonawarra, Rendelsham and Hatherleigh have underutilised the kerbside green waste collection and Council has written to these landholders suggesting that this service be replaced with a 2 bin service, resulting in a cost saving to residents.
These residents are asked to complete and return the form in the pre-paid envelope provided with their letter.
Residents who do not receive a letter from Council are also welcome to submit their views in writing by emailing email@example.com or by post to Wattle Range Council, PO Box 27, Millicent SA 5280.
The closing date for submissions is Monday, 27 March 2017 at 9 am.

In accordance with its Community Engagement Policy, Council invites the community to make written submissions on a proposal to reconstruct Sebastopol Spring Road, Millicent, between Agricultural Bureau Drive and Leybar Road, as an unsealed road.

Please note that all comments, including the names of those responding may be tabled at a public meeting of Council unless otherwise indicated by the respondent in which case their details are to be excluded from publication.
Due to their nature, some types of development proposals require public notification. This allows people likely to be affected by the development the opportunity to comment.
Any application(s) currently on public notification are available to view here and anyone wishing to make representation to Council should do so in writing by the closing dates shown on the notice.
The Penola Town Square is an ongoing project being progressed by Wattle Range Council and members of the Penola community.
