Community feedback invited for the draft Granite Belt – Urban Design Framework

20 December 2019

Southern Downs Regional Council invites and encourages residents to comment on the draft Granite Belt Urban Design Framework which is available for review until Wednesday 15 January 2020.

The draft framework was compiled in consultation with the community and the Granite Belt Planning Group, and identifies projects and initiatives to stimulate the region.

Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie said that Council was committed to engaging with the community and delivering initiatives and resources that would see the Granite Belt shine.

“Council engaged with the community through a series of workshops to identify and capture ideas and aspirations for key projects, essential services and initiatives that will help build a bright future for the Granite Belt,” said Mayor Tracy Dobie.

“The draft framework reflects the vision of the community and it is important that residents review the framework and provide feedback at this final stage of the consultation process.”

The draft Granite Belt Urban Design Framework is available at on the “Have your say” webpage. Alternatively it is also on display at the Stanthorpe Civic Centre Foyer and printed copies are available at the Warwick and Stanthorpe Customer Service Centres.
