Darley nsp temporarily
Moorabool Shire Council has resolved to temporarily
decommission the Place of Last Resort - Neighbourhood Safer
Place (NSP) at the Former Darley Junior Secondary Campus
(Buildings and Oval) until such time as all construction works
on the site are completed.
Council is required under the Act to temporarily decommission
an NSP if any building or construction works are being
undertaken on the site or it is unable to be maintained to the
required standards as an NSP.
Moorabool’s Municipal Emergency Management Planning
Committee went through the process at its February meeting
to recommend to Council that the temporary decommission
was required due to the office building works and the RLCIP
funding project works that are being undertaken.
Signs will be covered at the site during the temporary
tracks anD trails
Residents will notice that many of our beautiful walks along the
Werribee River, Lerderderg River, Peppertree Park, Caledonian
Park, Mill Park, Paddock Creek and many others have been
washed away and severely affected by the recent flood events.
Some of our walking tracks are so dangerous they have had to
be closed off to ensure the safety of all those that use them.
The Lerderderg River Walking Trail is one of the most severely
affected with washouts from the river encroaching underneath
the trail. This can be very dangerous as people do not realise
that this washout has occurred.
Council has closed this walk but has noticed over recent weeks
that signage has repeatedly been removed and either dumped
in the river or taken away.
Even though some of the closures are not signposted, Council
would like to remind all residents to avoid accessing the tracks
and to take care until such time as funding can be sought and
the walks repaired to a safe useable standard.
