1 July 2010 As you may be aware, the process of preparing a planning and design framework for the Kinglake Ranges, Flowerdale and Toolangi communities commenced with community consultation forums in early June. Work is now underway to investigate issues identified as critical to the long term future of local communities and the Ranges as a whole. Over the next few weeks technical experts will be working with local representatives to explore and discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with a ‘sustainable’ future. AECOM has been appointed to lead a team of independent consultants to work with local communities, Murrindindi Council and VBRRA in this process. As part of this research process you are invited to participate in a discussion of Sustainability, lifestyles and bushfire preparedness issues and opportunities. Your local knowledge and expertise will assist us to address important questions to inform the planning process.
