What is happening in Chiltern?
Chiltern was one of the first communities to engage in the Community Strengthening Project, with the Chiltern Community Planning Day held on Sunday 31 January 2010 and the Chiltern Community Plan rolling out shortly after.
Since then, many projects have come about in Chiltern, as prioritised by the Chiltern Community.

Reviving Lake Anderson
A project group has recently commenced working on Reviving Lake Anderson. This project will work in conjunction with Greening Chiltern Watercourses. To date this project group has coordinated a working bee to clean up the area. In Spring 2010 heavy rainfall presented more opportunities for the Lake Anderson project group. The community is now working with Council on the Masterplan for Lake Anderson. Stay tuned for updates on this project.
Promoting Chiltern as a place to live
A project group has come together to promote Chiltern as a place to live. The group started this project through the organisation of the 'Chiltern Open Day' in October of both 2010 and 2011 The event was used to promote Chiltern as a lifestyle opportunity to potential residents and it was a huge success. The event involved real estate agents conducting open house inspections on the day, as well as organised town tours and involved all community groups/organisations in promoting what they do. Future themed events are being considered, however, may take a different format to an Open Day.
