Have your say on Nagambie Waterways Rules Review

Strathbogie Shire Council is seeking feedback on proposed rule changes for the waterways in Nagambie managed by Council.

Council is in the process of reviewing speed limits and zoning on Lake Nagambie and the Goulburn River from Hughes Creek to the Goulburn Weir.

Waterway users, Strathbogie Shire Council and key stakeholders have voiced safety concerns, in part due to an increasing number of swimmers, non-powered vessels and powered vessels, sharing the waterway.

Council has since undertaken preparatory research and identified potential rule changes to improve safety on the waterway.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks said these changes addressed challenges including user safety, equitable access, sharing waterways, and planning for sustainable growth.

“Council is inviting comments from individuals and relevant organisations to ensure state-wide and local issues are reflected in the proposed approach,” Cr Binks said.

“We are encouraging people to do this by completing our survey on our online engagement platform Share Strathbogie.

“The purpose of the consultation is to find the most appropriate and safest solutions. Equitable use of the waterway will be an important consideration when it comes to the findings.”

The survey findings will be coupled with previous investigative work including the Lake Nagambie and the Goulburn River Risk Review (2020-21), Lake Nagambie and the Goulburn River Issues Paper (2020-21), an on-water survey conducted on Labour Day Weekend 2020, and a Bathymetric survey and sub-surface feature detection of Nagambie waterways.

A detailed briefing paper on the Nagambie Waterways Rules Review 2021-22, fact sheets on the use and management of Nagambie waterways and a survey seeking feedback can be found via www.share.strathbogie.vic.gov.au.
