A draft report Campaspe Shire Council commissioned believes Kyabram has an oversupply of community meeting places and facilities..

The Kyabram Places of Assembly/Community Facilities Study included a concept plan for the future of Kyabram Town Hall and also details recommendations for 14 places of assembly in and around Kyabram.

The town hall was a hot topic of conversation at the time and council received several submissions on that aspect of the report, but none about the other places of assembly.

Council’s community places and programs spokeswoman Carol Howell said she believed the study would be a landmark document for council.

‘‘Not only will it pave the way to maximise the future use of places of assembly and community facilities in Kyabram, it will also serve as a model to ensure these facilities across the shire are effectively managed and serve as vibrant places for entertainment and social gatherings by the public,’’ Cr Howell said.

‘‘Really we have got too many halls in the town when you think about it.’’
