Crossing the Seven Creeks from the Friendlies to Memorial ovals is about to get a lot easier.

Work on the Friendlies Pedestrian Bridge, near Gobur St in Euroa is starting this week.

The $395,000 project is funded by Strathbogie Shire Council and the Victorian Government.

It’s a long-awaited project for Strathbogie Shire residents and comes after strong lobbying from Council and the community.

“This is a huge win for the Euroa community,” Cr John Mason said.

“It comes after years of lobbying from locals who now have to go the ‘long-way-round’ or balance across an old log to cross the creek.”

Cr Mick Williams said the new bridge would link key sporting facilities in the town and create new pathways for events like the Euroa Parkrun.

“The new pedestrian bridge will provide another crossing along the 6.8km-long Seven Creeks walking track,” Cr Williams said.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Cr Amanda McClaren thanked the Victorian Government for committing funding to the project.

“Projects such as the Friendlies Pedestrian Bridge continue to expand the connectivity of our tracks and trails, further encouraging our community to get out and enjoy our beautiful Shire environment, Cr McClaren said.

Council will keep the community updated as the project progresses.

Help shape the growth of Nagambie

Strathbogie Shire Council is seeking community input into shaping the future growth of Nagambie.

Council is revising the Nagambie Growth Management Strategy to best reflect the future development of the town.

Mayor Cr Amanda McClaren said the original strategy was prepared in 2008 in response to revised strategic policy directions and local and regional conditions.

"Nagambie has experienced growth of 2.9 per cent over the past 15 years which is higher than the State average and the 2016 Census showed 1,724 people live in the town's urban centre," Cr McClaren said.

"We expect that this will grow to 4,000 in the next 15 years, an additional 2,286 people in central Nagambie.

Cr McClaren said it is anticipated that population growth will accomodate a permanent residential community as well as a transient holiday maker community, and a variety of lot sizes will be encouraged to accommodate different housing products.

"Population growth enables the delivery of supporting infrastructure, such as community services and facilities or transport infrastructure," she said.

"It allows businesses to grow and in turn offer jobs to the local population and the strategy can ensure that this growth occurs in a co-ordinated way and leads to benefits for the whole community, rather than pressure on existing infrastructure."

Cr McClaren said the strategy's main aims were:

  • To plan housing for a population of about 4,000 people over the next 15 years.
  • To locate housing that maximises existing services and facilities, can be serviced, and does not impact on areas to be protected.
  • To manage the growth of the town in a way that takes the best of its present character, respects its attractive landscape and lakeside setting, and produces an attractive, coherent future built form.

 "The growth which is being predicted for Nagambie must be managed to ensure the town's existing character is retained and it supports the required economic growth and the provision of appropriate community and social infrastructure," Cr McClaren said.

"The Nagambie Growth Management Strategy has been structured to address these issues and to ensure that the town both copes with and capitalises on the opportunities presented by growth.

"It will also inform growth areas for residential and industrial development, coordinate growth and infrastructure, identify key strategic sites and establish a high-level implementation plan for Nagambie."
