Townwide Garage Sale

This year’s Townwide Garage Sale will be held on Saturday 9 April, from 7.45am.  Last year, 76 registered garage sales were on the map for this popular event – how many will there be in 2016!?

Urban Growth - Have Your Say

Mount Alexander Shire Council is seeking community input into an Urban Growth Strategy for the Shire which will guide population and residential growth in our largest towns. 

Population projections, land availability, utility services, community plans and environmental considerations are some things that will be considered when developing the strategy.  

Glamping for Maldon?

Neighbours have received notification of a planning application for the development of a camping site on a 74 hectare block of land in Cooks Lane, near the Baringhup turn off from the Maldon-Bridgewater Road.   

The proposal is for something of a ‘glamping’ ground – tourists would stay in the great outdoors, but  under much more glamorous circumstances than the usual camping arrangements.  

and more .......

Three hundred people turned up for a delicious free breakfast and free indigenous trees at Maldon's Australia Day ceremony, where a string of well-deserved community awards were presented.
