Seeking ideas for recovery from storm-impacted residents  

Published: 11 November 2021

Community members affected by the storms in June and October 2021 are invited to share their ideas on how they want to be supported in their recovery.

The information will help Cardinia Shire Council’s Recovery Team to plan initiatives and events to support the community.   

Residents impacted by the storms are encouraged to share their ideas and feedback on Council’s consultation mini-site Creating Cardinia until Wednesday 1 December.  

Children can also have their say through our children’s drawing sheets which can be downloaded from the Creating Cardinia page. 

Recovery officers will be available at the Hills Hub every Wednesday from 10 November to provide advice and support to residents affected by the storms.  

Officers will also reach out to the community at sessions in Emerald and Cockatoo. They will be on Fairbridge Lane in Cockatoo, near the IGA supermarket, from 12 noon to 2pm on Thursday 18 November. 

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Jeff Springfield is encouraging people to come forward and share their ideas.  

“It’s been a challenging year for many due to the pandemic, and for some Cardinia Shire residents it’s been made even more difficult due to the storms,” Cr Springfield said. 

“Recovery can be a long and difficult process – but your feedback will help shape recovery initiatives and help the team keep providing the support our community needs.”  

Council’s Recovery Team will use the information collected during this community consultation to identify community priorities and develop a municipal recovery plan.
