THE Nagambie Streetscape project was an issue of contention, causing an uproar at a forum last week.
More than 120 locals attended the Strathbogie Voices (SV), a community advocacy group, forum, with many expressing their concern that there was no need for change.
Former councillor Margaret Moss spoke on the lack of proper consultation to all residents, ratepayers and businesses a few years back when the streetscape plan was first devised and the lack of response by locals to a survey undertaken in November 2012.
She felt that a new survey should be sent to everyone concerned in their letter box, and urged locals to reply.
“This would stop most of the angst felt by locals on the issue,” Mrs Moss said.
Local resident John Grant said “if the council can send out a survey on new waste bins, then it should do one on the streetscape project for everyone”.
