Moreland City Council is holding a “consultation session” for folk interested in culture and the yarts in Brunswick. Apparently the Vic Govt has ID’d the ‘wick as a “Major Activity Centre”, meaning a hot spot for growth. So Moreland is inviting the region’s “arts community to participate in consultations to inform the development of a social and cultural needs assessment”… meaning to toss around some ideas as to what’s needed.

The session is Monday 26 Feb 2007, 2pm – 4pm, so clearly they want folk with no work commitments. Bruns Civic Centre, Meeting Rm E, 233 Sydney Rd.

To get their “Objectives & Meeting Agenda” or queries, May Haeder 9240 2313 or email mhaeder@moreland.vic.gov.au

  3. No, I don’t have anything to do with this planning session. I received an “invitation” to attend because of submissions a group of us made four years ago to try to get the Council to modify their forthcoming zoning plans (we wanted a zoning that would ensure street improvements in an area zoned “Industrial”). We didn’t quite get what we wanted; at that time there seemed to be a number of councillors who lamented the fact that factories and warehouses were moving out closer to the ring-roads. Anyway, maybe the Council now sees a different kind of future for Brunswick, a future that interested parties might feel like contributing some ideas to…
