Some big infrastructure changes for Seymour under plan being considered by Mitchell Shire Council.By Chalpat Sonti
Seymour College could be set to get even larger if a recommendation in a Mitchell Shire Council plan is adopted.
One of the ideas contained in the draft integrated community services and infrastructure plan, in the process of being considered by the council, is to close merge the Seymour and Seymour East kindergartens and relocate them, and the Maternal and Child Health centre, to a new facility at Seymour College.
The plan said Seymour East kindergarten was in poor condition and needed upgrading.The MCH centre was rated an ‘‘ageing facility which is reasonably functional and in good condition’’. Seymour kindergarten was rated as being in good condition.

Cr Rhonda Sanderson told a recent council meeting that the report would provide council with a base to make funding decisions and applications.

‘‘After consultation, this plan will be finalised and will provide a blueprint for community services and infrastructure over the next 20 years or so.’’
Submissions close on October 25. Copies of the plan are available on the council’s website.
