Swan Hill Rural City Councillors threw their support behind, and unanimously endorsed, the updated Robinvale Bromley Road Masterplan at the June Ordinary Meeting of Council.
After extensive community consultation and the dedicated efforts of the Bromley Road Working Group, the original Bromley Road Masterplan has been combined with new concept road design and landscape plans to create one working document.
Members from the Friends of Bromley Road Committee teamed up with Council officers, Councillor John Katis and local police to form the Bromley Road Working Group, collaborating to produce a new road design that was strongly supported by the Robinvale community.
The group also identified adjustments to projects within the original masterplan and through the Robinvale Community Plan review, assisted with landscape concept designs to tie in with the new road design.
Council’s Director Development and Planning Adam McSwain said the local knowledge the group provided was integral in developing a plan that would fit the needs and wants of the Robinvale community.
“The new road design was a concept put forward by the Friends of Bromley Road,” Mr McSwain said.
“The group took an idea from the original Bromley Road Streetscape Masterplan and adjusted the design to create a road plan they considered to be more practical and simplified.
“The new landscape concept design was also developed based on community ideas and feedback after extensive community consultation during the Robinvale Community Plan review weekend.
“This input has resulted in a masterplan that essentially has been developed by the Robinvale community for the Robinvale community.”
Surveying of Bromley Road has now been completed and a consultant has recently been engaged to begin mapping the new road design to assist with development and project timelines and to support future funding applications.
Copies of the Bromley Road Masterplan are available from Council’s website and at the Robinvale Resource Centre. For more information, contact Council’s Economic Development Officer Amanda Young on 5032 3033.
