Project Overview

Moorabool Shire Council is developing Township Improvement Plans for small towns across the shire. Council is holding community consultation to explore opportunities for township improvements within the public realm of Blackwood.

The Blackwood Township Improvement Plan will review and guide:

  • Trees & Landscape Improvements (new tree &/or landscape upgrades)
  • Destinations & Connections (key points within the town, missing links etc.)
  • Furniture & amenity (seating, noticeboard, bike hoops etc.)
  • Civic Street Upgrades (paving surfaces, kerb and channel formalisation, etc.)
  • Other ideas (anything that doesn’t fit the other categories)

All of which, together create a unique sense of place within a community. The Township Improvement Plan document will help guide and inform future planning and design within the Blackwood Township.


We encourage you to provide your input to help shape Blackwoodtownship improvements. Opportunity for community feedback closes Tuesday 15 September 2020.

Note: Western Transmission Lines Project.

Council understand that this is currently a sensitive issue for many in the community.  The Township Improvement Plans are not intended to collect or forward feedback on the Western Transmission Lines Project.

For those looking for more information or to lodge feedback regarding the Western Transmission Lines Project, Council suggests that you contact the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project directly.

The WVTNP website site offers an interactive mapping tool for community members to visit and have their say on the issues that are important to them. This information will be used to help determine the transmission line route with the least amount of impacts. The project design will consider these impacts in balancing environmental, social, cultural and heritage factors.

Council strongly encourages everyone, whether directly impacted by the project or not, to go to where members of the public can send their thoughts and concerns directly. Alternatively, they can call the hotline on (03) 9021 0674 or email
