A REMINDER TO PARK APPROPRIATELY 

Central Goldfields Shire issues parking permits to people with a disability as part of the Victorian Disable Persons Parking Scheme. The permit holder can be a driver, passenger or organisation that transports individuals who meet the criteria.

Motorists, without a Disabled Parking Permit, are reminded that they are not permitted to park where there is a green and white or blue and white disabled parking sign. This sign means you need a special disabled parking permit to park here.

Central Goldfield Shire Local Laws officers have the authority to fine a vehicle parked in a disabled parking bay who does not have a permit displayed.

 

NATIVE VEGETATION REMOVAL

Did you know that in Victoria, in most cases, a permit is required to remove, destroy or lop native vegetation? This includes native trees, shrubs, herbs and grasses that are local to Victoria and Australia.

The Central Goldfields Shire stands out amongst other rural areas in Victoria because extensive areas of native bushland and exotic trees are retained within the municipality and we are committed to preserving this special character.

Prior to undertaking any vegetation and/or tree removal please contact the Central Goldfields Planning team on 5461 0610 to find out whether a planning permit is required.

 

PLANNING ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE

Council provides advice on planning matters to assist people to understand local planning regulations and how they may affect them.

To access this service residents can visit the Shire Office and speak to a member of our Planning team at our designated planning desk  from Monday to Friday between 10am and 12noon. Other times are available by appointment.
