Designing a future for Dysart

DYSART'S future will be planned with its residents in mind, thanks to the strategic partnership between BMA and the Isaac Regional Council.

The Urban Design Framework will deliver a stronger future for the mining town, and is a framework that aims to explore the encroaching needs and challenges.

BMA head of external affairs Vincent Cosgrove said the company was pleased to support the IRC's Urban Design Framework.

"Our commitment to this initiative is in direct response to local community feedback, which identified a need for a strategic urban design plan to aid tourism and economic development, and to attract new residents," Mr Cosgrove said.

"This plan, we hope, will address aesthetic needs and provide the plans necessary to deliver significant future projects for Dysart."

The IRC has engaged JPE Design Studio and Wax Design to develop a strategic and long-term planning direction for the town, which is integral to the Urban Design Framework.

The consultation team will be conducting the Dysart 2020+ survey, which will consist of a variety of consultations, the first being the Place-Making workshop at the Dysart Civic Centre from 7pm on Thursday, November 3.

On Friday and Saturday, November 4-5, the consultation team will be again at the civic centre, allowing residents and community members to have their say from 10am, both days.
