What is the Korumburra Round Table (KRT)
We are a representative committee working in partnership with South Gippsland Shire Council and the Korumburra Community.
We consist of 17 community members mostly representing community groups whose primary focus is Korumburra. Our 3 Councillors and a council officer also attend the meetings.
We are a conduit of information between Council and the Korumburra Community.
We also share what happening within the groups that we represent gaining a better understanding of all that is happening in Korumburra.
Can I Join?
Applications for memberships are considered in June & December each year. Community members are encouraged to apply with preference given to those representing other community groups or those considered most suitable for the role. Members are elected for a 2 year term after which they can reapply with a maximum of 3 consecutive terms.
We meet once a month on a Thursday evening at Coal Creek Community Park & Museum.
What are we doing
With all the development planned for Korumburra in the coming years we are working closely with the Shire to ensure we receive in the best outcomes for the community.
The Korumburra Revitalisation Project consisting of the Community Hub and a new Streetscape for Commercial Street is a Priority Project for the Shire.
The Railway land has been chosen by the community for the new Community Hub that will be the home for Milpara Community House and the Library.
This project will rebuild the core of Korumburra and extend Commercial Street into the railway precinct and create a vital space for education, arts, community and culture.
Monthly Update June 2018
The June meeting was another informative and constructive meeting of the happenings in Korumburra. Of interest to general community in the report from council officer Bryan Sword was the recent acceptance of the Population Growth and Land Study Supply undertaken for South Gippsland Shire. It is an interesting read and a snap shot of every town in the Shire. The document is to be used by community and council for future decision making to ensure we are meeting expected future demands. One of its purposes is to ensure that towns have 10-15 years supply of land for residential, commercial and industrial available to meet these demands. Korumburra is well placed with plenty of land available to meet our forecasted needs over the next 10-15 years. For further information take a look at the report on the Shire website.
The Supermarket development negotiations between the Shire and the developer have not changed since our last meeting with talks still positive but the development may take a longer than we first thought.
The Community Hub is definitely moving along with expressions of interest now out for a consultant to draw up a Concept Design for the Hub. This will be followed by a Master Plan detailing where the Hub will sit within the Railway Precinct. Negotiations with Vic Track continue for the use of the land.
We are moving along with our plans for a gala evening in August where we will be inviting our politicians to come and hear the enthusiastic Korumburra Round Table members give a run down on what is planned for Korumburra’s Revitalisation Project. We will be bringing them along on our towns’ journey and will make sure that Korumburra is well etched into their minds when it comes to funding down the track; after all it is an election year.
