Hadfield Park Public Safety Initiatives

Mitchell Shire Council is committed to creating a safer and more involved community by working with all stakeholders to improve public safety, and enhance community perceptions of safety in public spaces. An opportunity to apply for a Department of Justice grant has arisen to implement measures to improve public safety and security infrastructure. We want your views and opinions on the proposed safety measures we would like to implement via a short survey on Engaging Mitchell plus any suggestions public safety could be increased in Hadfield Park, Wallan. The survey will be open until 10th August 2016.

Mitchell Volunteer Surveys Now Open on Engaging Mitchell

We are seeking feedback about volunteering to support volunteer participation in Mitchell from all types of volunteers - informal and formal Volunteers, past and present - and those who wish to volunteer but have not done so (what are the barriers, how would you get involved). Responses will inform the development of a Volunteer Framework to outline the vision and guidelines/standards for volunteer engagement and development in Mitchell Shire. Surveys will be open until 15 August 2016.
