The Macedon Ranges Shire Council with minimal community consultation is currently seeking expressions of interest for a large scale development at Hanging Rock Reserve.
The Hanging Rock Action Group is an alliance of community groups and individuals who are committed to:
1. Have Council undertake its Community Consultation Framework,
2. Distil the real issues and facts of the
proposed development, and
3. Raise community awareness of the issues.
HRAG stands for an open & transparent process that gives our community the opportunity to participate as guaranteed in Councils Community Consultation Framework.
Once implemented HRAG will cease to exist.
