Have your say on community safety issues

David Lee July 12, 2017

GREATER Shepparton City Council is seeking community feedback on what they feel are the most important matters regarding safety in Greater Shepparton to assist with the development of the 2018 – 2021 Community Safety Strategy.

The Community Safety Strategy addresses high priority relevant community safety issues facing Greater Shepparton, identified using local agency knowledge, statistics and community feedback.

Greater Shepparton City Council Councillor, Les Oroszvary has asked the community for engagement, ownership and input into the strategy, to identify what they consider as priorities.

“Ultimately community input has a substantial impact on the end result. In the past this input has resulted in numerous positive outcomes, of note has been the success of the CCTV network,” Cr Oroszvary said.

“Some people may consider this again as a further strategic outcome for extension of the network. This is but one example of the input. The lighting the lake is another example whereby community input was acknowledged, listened to and acted upon.

“Greater Shepparton City Council values its residents and their safety,” Cr Oroszvary said.

Submissions close at midnight on Sunday, August 13 and can be made by post with feedback addressed to the Community Safety Strategy, Greater Shepparton City Council, Locked Bag 1000, Shepparton, VIC, 3632, via email to [email protected] or in person at Greater Shepparton City Council offices, 90 Welsford Street, Shepparton.
