Development for St Brigid's

A planning application to build independent living units at the rear of St Brigid’s Church is currently wending its way through the Mt Alexander Shire planning system.  The project is being managed and financed by the Catholic Homes for the Elderly. 

There are eight units planned for the block, with three fronting onto Adair Street and four facing Warnock Street.  An eighth unit, which is situated directly behind the church itself, will be accessed via the existing driveway in Chapel Street.  It is envisaged that the St Brigid’s hall will be used by the residents for community activities and some internal works and refurbishments will take place there.     

Big Ideas Forum

Residents from across the region attended a Maldon & District Community Bank conference in Maldon last week to identify The Big One - the key social issue that is of concern to the community.  

The aim of the conference was to invite the public to influence how Bank funds are distributed.  This is a departure from the Bank’s previous policy, which was to fund specific projects nominated by clubs and organisations. 

Proposed Shire Budget - Have Your Say

Mount Alexander Shire Council has released its 2016/2017 Proposed Budget for community consideration.  And ratepayers will be pleased with the proposed rate rise of 2.5%, to conform with the Victorian Government’s Fair Go Rate System.  

The $34.94 million budget seeks to maintain and improve services and infrastructure, and deliver projects and services valued by the community.
