The draft Dwellingup Futures Road Map will be presented to the public on Wednesday 11 August, 5:30pm at the Dwellingup Community Hall.

Developed through a multi-stakeholder process which kicked-off in late 2019, the draft Road Map presents a shared vision as well as goals, strategic priorities and key success indicators which aim to achieve the desired growth of Dwellingup by 2036.

According to Shire President Cr. David Bolt, the event officially signifies the start of the public comment period for this influential document.

“Dwellingup has experienced a period of significant investment and tourism growth over recent years, momentum that needs to be protected and sustainably maintained.

“New and existing opportunities for industry and jobs and methods of co-existence between different sectors, industries and land uses, have been identified for the betterment of the town, region and state.

“Residents are encouraged to attend to learn about the proposed way forward for Dwellingup, as well as the economic, social and recreational implications for the rest of the district.

“We want to know if our residents share the proposed vision for the town and if they think the proposed actions will achieve it,” Cr. Bolt said.

The draft Road Map will be available to view from Wednesday 11 August on the Shire’s Your Say portal yoursay.murray.wa.gov.au/dwellingup-futures, with feedback accepted through the portal.

A drop-in information session will also take place from 2:00pm to 4:00pm on Wednesday 18 August at the Dwellingup Community Hall and the public comment period will close on Friday 10 September 2021.

The project is supported by Peel Development Commission and the Shire of Murray.
