Council recently completed a community consultation program on a proposal to close and lease a portion of Richardson Street Nathalia, following a request from an adjacent business owner.

During the consultation program administrative errors were identified which will require a decision to be deferred on the proposal and a revised community consultation program to commence to discontinue the road. Accordingly, Council gives notice under clause 3 of Schedule 10 of the Local Government Act 1989, that it is considering a new proposal to discontinue 20 x 13 metres of road at the north end of Richardson Street, Nathalia (defined in Plan of Subdivision 1315 Parish of Barwo County of Moira).

Council is inviting submissions this proposal in accordance with section 207A and 223 of the Local Government Act 1989.  

Submissions on this proposal have now closed.

At the Scheduled Council Meeting on 23 August 2023 Council resolved to authorise the Chief Executive Officer to give public notice of Council’s intention to close 20 x 13 metres of road at the North end of Richardson Street Nathalia (shown in the map below) and enter into a lease with Trans Tank International (TTi) and invite submissions in accordance with Section 12 of the Road Management Act, Schedule 10 Local Government Act 1989 and Section 115 of the Local Government Act 2020.

Submissions on this proposal closed on 27 September 2023 and Council held a Committee of Council Meeting on 12 October 2023 to hear those who wished to speak to their submissions.

Council has deferred a decision on this proposal and is now seeking further submissions from the community in relation to the proposal to discontinue a portion of road on Richardson Street Nathalia, as indicated in the map below for the purpose of then entering into a lease with Trans Tank International to ensure the safe transport of goods from the manufacturing point to their warehouse. A five-metre pedestrian access would be maintained within the roadway along the western boundary of Richardson Street.

The submissions received during the first round of community consultation will be accepted as part of this revised consultation program.
