We're in the process of developing a draft place plan for Rutherglen, which will become a guide for growth and development for the community within the township for the next 30 years.
When adopted, the place plan will support existing plans and strategies, guide infrastructure development, support community advocacy and, critically, improve funding success of projects within Rutherglen.
While the aim of this initial engagement will be to capture the essence of the entire town, the place plan will focus on four main themes to drive:
- Growth and development
- Sustainable development within the township
- Considerations for the Rutherglen town centre,
- Tourism opportunities and social capital.
The main aims of the place plan are to:
- Address opportunities and challenges within Rutherglen associated with the place plan themes
- Capture the desires of the entire Rutherglen community for the future of the town
- Establishing short, medium and long term goals for Rutherglen
- Establishing priority projects for Rutherglen
- Provide recommendations around strategies, actions, timeframes, costs and funding sources
While we have engaged with a steering committee consisting of your community representatives, we now want to hear from the broader community about suggestions and ideas for the future of Rutherglen.
