Proposed development plan — 1755 Seymour Tooborac Road Glenaroua

1755 Seymour Tooborac Road Glenaroua

Council has received an application for the use and development of the land for a place of assembly, alteration of access to a Road Zone – Category 1 and the removal of native vegetation at 1755 Seymour Tooborac Road Glenaroua.

The events proposed are the Seven Sisters festival and Union Festival. Seven Sisters Festival and Union Festival are drug and alcohol free well-being events. Seven Sisters is a women only event that seeks to promote community building and “celebrate womanhood”, through providing a space for women to access teachers, healers, resources and information. Promoted as a cross-generational event, Seven Sisters seeks to create a network for women and generate awareness on issues that affect women’s mental and physical health. Union Festival is for both men and women to provide tools, support and resources to connect to themselves and each other through the provision of workshops and activities to enhance self-knowledge and building community and connection.

The application is seeking approval for three events per calendar year, which will consist of four days over three weekends on an ongoing basis (a total of 12 days per annum). A maximum number of 5,000 patrons is proposed (this number typically consists of approximately 4000 camping guests, 450 daily guests and 500 staff). 3,500 car parking spaces are proposed to cater patrons. It is intended to run the events in Autumn and Spring (exact dates are not proposed to facilitate local community activities, weather and local authority requirements such as the CFA).

Council is currently undertaking an assessment of the proposal. A hard copy of this application can be viewed at Broadford Library until 13 December 2019.
