A community meeting at Granville Harbour on Tuesday was successful West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers said.
The meeting, coordinated by West Coast Council in partnership with the Granville Harbour Coast Care Group, was attended by Parks & Wildlife, Tasmania Police and TasFire along with members of the Granville Harbour community.
“The meeting was well attended and allowed for a series of initiatives to be identified,” the Mayor said. “As a result of community queries, Council will now work with the community regarding potential space for a community noticeboard and screening at the transfer station.”
A representative from the Coast Care Group will also sit on the West Coast Weed Management Group.
The Zeehan Bushfire Mitigation Plan, recently developed by TasFire, was discussed in detail with the community looking to apply the same approach used for the Zeehan document in developing strategies for Granville Harbour where possible. Fire break possibilities will also be identified by the community with potential costs to be forwarded to Parks and Wildlife.
The West Coast Emergency Management Committee and Weed Management Group will monitor the progress of the proposed initiatives and will request updates and provide assistance across agencies as appropriate.
“It is great to a see the community being positive and proactive in working with stakeholders to develop plans and complete projects. Council looks forward to a continued partnership with the Granville community and stakeholders,” Mayor Vickers said.
