Rutherglen Place Plan

May 2021 update

At its May 2021 meeting, Indigo Shire Council finalised the composition of the Place Planning Steering Committee including appointing five community members from 20 nominations.

The Steering Committee will provide input into the scope of the Place Plan, provide strategic advice and ensure everyone in Rutherglen has the opportunity to provide input and have their say.

The commencement meeting of this Steering Committee was held in mid June.

October 2021 update

The project took an exciting step forward in early October, with the steering committee selecting Public Realm Lab as the successful tenderer to work with the community on the development of the place plan.
The Committee has a tentative meeting booked with Public Realm Lab on Friday 5 November to discuss the project's next steps.
In the meantime, Public Realm Lab will be reviewing some background documents and learning more about the Rutherglen community.
