Help us shape a new Council Plan

The new Mitchell Shire Council is developing the next four-year Council Plan and wants input from their most valued source of information – you! We've made it easy to have your say, with a range of ways you can engage including listening posts, surveys and an online chat. Councillors will also be at many local events and will be dropping in to several locations across the shire to get your thoughts.

Wellbeing and Council Plan survey

You're invited to complete a short survey and join the conversation to help develop a new Council Plan and Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan for the next four years. Your responses will also help shape related strategies and plans.

Possible rail trail from Wallan to Heathcote?

We're looking at the possibility of a rail trail from Wallan to Heathcote (to link up with the O'Keefe Rail Trail from Bendigo to Heathcote). Take a look at the possible route options and summary document or attend a drop-in session and let us know what you think. You can also fill in our online survey or make a written submission.
