Stratford A&P Association Proposal

Council is seeking your feedback on a proposal from the Stratford Agricultural and Pastoral Association (“A&P Association”). 

The A&P Association has asked for Council’s support towards a multi-use facility development temporarily known as the ‘Stratford Park Project’. The A&P Association needs assistance to purchase the land, and is seeking Council’s support.
There are different ways in which Council could respond to this project, from doing nothing through to purchasing the required land outright and gifting it to the A&P Association.
To go ahead, this project needs Council’s support. While the project has the potential to be a game-changer for the district and the wider region, it does come with some risks. Before making their final decision, Councillors want to hear what the community thinks.
Read about the risks, benefits and options on this page or download this document, and then let us know what you think by using one of the below details.

  • Post to Chief Executive, Stratford District Council, PO Box 320, Stratford or drop off at 61-63 Miranda Street
Feedback closes 5 November 2020.
More information is available from the Stratford A&P Association website and a community meeting will be held at the War Memorial Centre on Thursday 22 October 2020 at 7.00pm, where the A&P Association will present their vision for this proposal.
