The Council will also visit Cassilis on Thursday, February 24 at 6pm at the Cassilis Community Centre.
Residents are invited to attend the Community Strategic Plan meeting from 6pm to 7pm ahead of the community meeting about the Waste Transfer Station from 7pm to 8pm.

Council seeks feedback on Disability Inclusion Access Plan
Upper Hunter Shire Council is looking to hear from the community about Disability, Access and Inclusion in the Upper Hunter Shire.
The Upper Hunter Shire Council is developing its Disability Inclusion Access Plan (DIAP) for 2022-2026.
The plan will assist Council to continue our commitment to supporting and improving access and inclusion to our services and facilities.
Upper Hunter Shire Council Mayor Maurice Collison said while everyone’s views were welcome, he wanted to encourage those with first-hand experience of living with a disability or caring for someone impacted by physical or mental disabilities, to give feedback.
“The outcome of the community consultation will be the creation of a Disability Inclusion Action Plan,” he said.
“An example could be how we can make the physical environment more liveable by developing more accessible toilets or improving paths of travel between facilities and services in our town centres.
The responses will help Council form a draft plan which will then be released to the community for further feedback.
Submissions can be addressed to the General Manager, Mr Greg McDonald via email, post or completing the online submission form prior to 5pm on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.
