Focus on southwest development

SWAN Hill’s much anticipated southwest development precinct is a significant step closer after council moved to rezone the area for residential purposes earlier this week.

Council will now seek support from landowners in the area to facilitate rezoning of the land for residential development.

The precinct, which contains 33 parcels of land across approximately 240 hectares, will allow for 1300 residential lots once developed.

It is anticipated the development will accommodate more than 3000 additional residents once fully developed.

Council will seek authorisation from the Minister for Planning to undertake amendment C58 to Swan Hill Planning Scheme. This will put in motion the rezoning of the majority of the land, which is zoned Farming and Low Density Residential.

The amendment is required to rezone the parcels of land General Residential Zone (GRZ).

Costs incurred to council in the rezoning include Planning Scheme Amendment fees and costs associated with a panel hearing.

Once authorisation has been achieved, the plans will be exhibited for the public over a period of four weeks.

Owners and occupiers of affected land will be notified.

New-look MDAS centre

MAJOR UPGRADE: Mallee District Aboriginal Service board member Rob Connelly, office coordinator Karyn Hilton and health workers Jody Croft and Damien Murray take a look over the latest renovations to the Swan Hill centre.FINAL inspections will be carried out next week on a million-dollar refurbishment of the Mallee District Aboriginal Service’s Swan Hill centre.

The major upgrade has included repairs of termite and water damage to the centre’s auditorium, which has been unusable for more than two years.

MDAS board member Rob Connelly said the work had also allowed for expansion of the organisation’s family services area.

“The work will give us a major improvement in new offices and useable work areas for our family services and staff,” he said.

“It allows space for 11 staff and an extra two offices — in fact, it will effectively double the size of the family services area.

“The end result is a more professional and efficient work environment for staff and a more comfortable and culturally appropriate setting and experience for our clients.”

Carried out by Ballarat’s SJ Weir Constructions, using Swan Hill-based sub-contractors, the project also included the upgrade of toilets and amenities in the community hall and the conversion of several offices into training rooms.

MDAS CEO Rudolph Kirby said the million-dollar refurbishment, which followed a similar expansion of health services last year, had breathed life back into the Nyah Road centre.

“We’re trying to create a state-of-the-art facility similar to Mildura,” he said.

“Our next focus will be in Kerang.”

Improving Metro

IT HAS been a long standing issue for students, workers and everyday users of Metro Tasmania that often the service doesn’t run on time.

Users of the service require a system that will keep Metro Tasmania accountable for the essential service they provide within our community.

Similar to many mainland public transport services the potential exists for Tasmanian service users to have access to the reasons why services aren’t running on time and how it is being improved.

I respect all that work for Metro Tasmania, this proposal isn’t critical of the current work which is done but looks at ways the service can be more effective for everyone.

While Metro Tasmania isn’t the direct responsibility of local government and rather that of the state government, ample opportunity exists for representative bodies to lobby on behalf of their local constituency to achieve better local outcomes.
