On 4 December at 6pm, Murrindindi Shire Council will meet at the Yea Shire Hall for a Special Meeting to hear from objectors and supporters alike about the planning application for the development of 707 Murrindindi Road, Murrindindi (also known as ‘Balaclava Station’).

The planning application for the land at 707 Murrindindi Road to be developed and used as a hotel, restaurant and bar has been on public exhibition and open to the community for submissions since 1 October.

Murrindindi Shire Council CEO, Craig Lloyd said we understand many community members have views about the proposal for 707 Murrindindi Road, Murrindindi to be developed and used as a hotel, restaurant and bar.  That is why we ran an extended exhibition and submission period for this particular planning application. We wanted to make sure everyone got the chance to have their say.

At the forthcoming Special Meeting, Council will consider all of the submissions made for and against this planning application and then make a decision about whether to issue a Notice of Decision to Grant a permit or to issue a Notice of Decision to Refuse the application.

Community members are invited to attend the Special Meeting and are welcome to register their intention to share their views on the planning application during the open forum period of the meeting. To ensure there is enough time for everyone to speak, you will need to register your intent to participate before the meeting.

You can register your participation by downloading and submitting the Open Forum Public Participation form - find out more here.  Or you can fill in a form at any Murrindindi Shire Council office (including on the Customer Service and Library van). Additionally, if you arrive by 5.30pm on the evening of the Meeting, you will be able to fill out Open Forum Public Participation form on the night.
