The response for walking or cycling tracks, parklands or playground area (open spaces) was very high.There was strong diagreement to the suggestion that this land be used for a commercial venture, a skate park or private or public housing.
Questions suggestions received from survey respondents- for Karook – Wadeson Street -Should this land be offered to the landowners who back onto it? -Should cycling & walking access through this area be incorporated into any future development? -Would this be a good site for a miniature railway? -Would this land be suitable for assisted living units?
This land is currently not owned by Moira Shire. Would you like to see this strip of land owned by the community. There was strong interest in seeing this land retained for the community.

There was some diagreement to this land being used for a skate park or a road.
Questions suggestions received from survey respondents- for the show grounds area: If a skate park were developed in this area should it be located in the sporting complex area near Campbell Road where there is constant passing traffic?
Do you think that the "Town channel " land should be used for the benefit of the community Strong support for this idea. Nobody who responded disagreed.
There will be TWO surveys to this particular project. The next survey will ask questions developed in response to answers from the first survey as well as some new questions. Are you willing to participate in the next survey? The second survey was postphoned because there were insufficient suggested questions from the first survey. I will endeavour to see if I can get questions on other community issues that may justify the effort and cost of the next survey.
Questions suggestions received from survey respondents- Would you like to suggest a question for the next survey? A summary of suggestions made: - -Should the old railway land be used to provide better access and egress to the town centre? -Should the whole town channel land be used to provide a green area for Cobram? -Should dogs not on leads be banned from public walking tracks -Should one of the pre schools consider relocating to an area in the new residential development area? Continued…….
Continued…… -Is the Cobram Community House well located? -Does Cobram need more aged care facilities? Final comments There will be a next survey but it will take a bit longer to gather questions that will be meaningful for the community respond to. The responses to this survey will be made available to any interested person or group. Liz Diamond PO Box 550 Cobram 0438652201
