Community drop-in session on draft Construction, Environment and Traffic Management Plan

All residents and property owners are invited to a drop-in session on the draft Construction, Environment and Traffic Management Plan at 10am – 12noon, Monday 24 April 2017 at the Wye River Surf Life Saving Club.

Colac-Otway Shire and Coffeys developed the draft Construction, Environment and Traffic Management Plan to guide construction during the rebuild phase of renewal.

Engineers and other staff members from Council and Coffeys will be at the drop-in session to discuss the plan and provide information to community members.

The extended closing date for feedback is 1 May. Residents and property owners are asked to please send comments back to the bushfire recovery email: bushfire.recovery@colacotway.vic.gov.au to help us finalise a document that will work for most people.

The Construction, Environment and Traffic Management Plan can be viewed here and the Council Local Law to which it refers can be viewed here.

Council is seeking community feedback around permitted hours of operation for power tools and loud machinery – should they reflect the EPA guidelines, which are generally permitted use between 7am and 8pm Monday to Friday and between 9am and 8pm on weekends and public holidays. Should they be more liberal to allow quicker rebuilding or should they be more restrictive?

We’re also seeking feedback on how best to delineate parking restrictions – either area wide or individually signed and if we opt for signed, how we might sign it to avoid the sign-on-pole approach that we know is unpopular.

Finally, our intention is to set a 20km/h speed limit in the construction area and we are seeking feedback on that.

Once finalised the Plan will be adopted by Council and will be a condition of any planning permit.
