Following community consultation, Council has approved the implementation of a new Laneway Management Policy as well as the continuation of the existing laneway treatments across Palmerston’s suburbs for an additional 12-month period.

The Laneway Management Policy looks at considering the needs of the community by enabling residents to submit a request for the treatment of a Palmerston laneway and outlines the steps and timeframes that Council will take in assessing these requests. 

Community consultation on the Laneway Management Policy was open from 23 September and closed on 21 October 2020.

A review of the outcomes of the subsequent 12 months will be reported to Council by December 2021 to inform future decision-making.
