The Shire of Esperance has called for residents to have their say on the future of the town’s built environment.

At last week’s meeting, the council resolved to put out an expression of interest to the public to form a streetscape advisory committee.

The committee will be made up of councillors and five members of the public, who will work to make recommendations to the council for improvements in the local streetscape amenity and development of public open space.

Shire of Esperance chief executive Matthew Scott said the group would act as a two-way communication system between the council and the community.

“Council is interested to get some community members on to that committee to help make some recommendations to council, particularly about the town centre streetscaping program,” he said.

“Council adopted the terms of reference for the committee, and expressions of interest are now out to the community.”

Details are on the council website and forms should be sent to shire@esperance.wa. gov.au.
