Strathbogie Shire Council is calling on our community to provide input into future planning for Euroa, with the draft Euroa Township Strategy open for community feedback.

Council’s Acting CEO, Phil Howard said the Euroa Township Strategy will provide a framework for how Euroa can sustainably grow and develop into the future.

“Euroa is a well-established town with a good range of services and facilities, it has the potential for further growth and offers a lifestyle alternative to urban and metropolitan areas,” Mr Howard explained.

“The Euroa Township Strategy aims to improve the function of the town to meet the needs of the local community, including looking at connectivity, accessibility, public streetscapes and carparking.”

“Township Strategies are crucial in guiding budget and capital works decisions, informing town planning and attracting funding from State and Federal Government,” Mr Howard said.

The draft strategy has considered feedback from initial discussions with the community held last year and through feedback in relation to Australian Rail Track Corporation’s Inland Rail Project on the Anderson Street overpass, which is also covered in the draft strategy.

Council welcomes feedback until 5pm Friday, 15 November, 2019.

In response to current drought conditions Strathbogie Shire Council is sponsoring 100 free family tickets to the Euroa Agricultural Show for this Saturday 26th October.

We are aware of the issues the drought brings to both agricultural business and the many businesses within the shire that rely on agriculture.

We will also have a marquee at the Show hosting financial experts from the Rural Financial Counselling Service, and specialists from Agriculture Victoria, Gecko Clan Landcare and Farm Monitoring Solutions as part of the ‘Water on Farm’ project, and other land use management groups. The Rural Financial Counselling Service can help you with advice and applications for grants, as well as tailored advice for your own specific situation.

Please help spread the word, as the Euroa Agricultural Society and Strathbogie Shire Council would like to ensure that anyone thinking of missing the Show this year due to the burden of the drought, will come along, say hi, get some new ideas, and hopefully get some yummy food too.

Tickets can be requested at the gate on the day of the Show, but don’t arrive too late!

Nagambie road users will see Marie Street, between High Street northbound and High Street southbound, return back to a two way intersection, with works to be completed in the coming weeks.

Council’s decision comes in response to a petition from members of the Nagambie community requesting Marie Street be reverted.

The petition was presented to Council in May and after discussions with VicRoads and Victoria Police, Council has resolved to revert Marie Street back to two way traffic.

Strathbogie Shire Council Acting CEO, Phil Howard said the one-way flow was implemented as the approved plan included the provision of bus parking in Marie Street and continued angled parking along Jacobsons Outlook, but this plan has since changed.

“The reduction in speed limit from 60kph to 40kph and the removal of angle parking along High Street adjacent to the intersection, combined with the changed location of the bus parking has allowed Council to make the decision to revert Marie Street back to two-way traffic,” Mr Howard explained.

“Due to these factors, VicRoads and Victoria Police have supported this decision.”

Works to revert Marie Street will be undertaken by Council and will be implemented by Friday 25th October.

There will be signage in place advising road users of the returned two-way intersection and this area will be monitored by Council to ensure there are no other issues or risks experienced by vehicles or pedestrians.

Council thanks residents of Nagambie for their input into this decision and encourage anyone with any questions or concerns to contact Council Offices on 1800 065 993 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Strathbogie Shire Council will be soon applying for a planning permit for the removal of two trees at the Euroa Caravan Park.

The number of trees originally proposed for removal was 14, but this was reassessed and now only one tree is proposed to be removed from the camping area. The other tree proposed for removal is located on one of the internal access roads within the park area.

The removal is required due to the poor health of the trees which pose an unacceptable risk to person and property.

The remaining trees originally planned for removal will be canopy pruned to remove any dead wood and improve the longevity of the trees.

The pruning does not require a planning permit, so is planned to commence on Monday 21st October.

To allow for the reduction in the number of trees to be removed, a new site layout will be required for the Euroa Caravan Park which includes the realignment and replacement of the existing power heads and water supply points.

These works will ensure that 14 mature eucalypts are retained and the amenity of the park is maintained.

Council will continue to work closely with the Caravan Park Manager, arborists and the Euroa Arboretum to undertake a replanting program associated with the proposed tree removals and planned future landscape planting.

Should you wish to discuss this proposal further, please contact John Canny, Manager Operations at Council Offices on 1800 065 993.
