CMA touts Bendigo flood zones review consultation

Thursday June 19, 2014 - 08:40 EST

The body managing a big review of Bendigo's flood zones say it believes most residents have come away from the consultation process happy with how it has been handled.

As part of the final stage of consultation, letters have been sent to homes in Junortoun and Strathfieldsaye and meetings with residents have been scheduled for next week.

The North Central Catchment Management Authority's (CMA) Shaun Morgan says all up, about 600 individual meetings will have been held with people affected by changes.

"They generally go away with a better understanding and more confident that they've had some exposure to this subject matter, which, like I said, can be quite technical, and some more confidence about what it means for them," he said.
