Public Safety Survey Horsham North
In November 2016, HRCC completed a $94,000 project in Horsham North, funded by the State Government’s Public Safety Infrastructure Fund. Project works included: an upgrade to the two rail underpasses (Albert Street and Wawunna Road); and improved lighting in and around the Charisma Park area. The key driver of this project was feedback from a community survey undertaken in 2015 for the Horsham Rail Corridor Master Plan which highlighted residents safety concerns in these key areas.
To evaluate the effectiveness of the project, Council asks interested residents to complete the following short (less than 5 minutes) on-line survey before 5:00pm on Friday 23 February:
Community Satisfaction Survey
Residents are informed that from Monday 19 February 2018 for up to three weeks, your household may receive a call from an independent market research agency, National Field Services. They have been commissioned to conduct a community satisfaction survey on behalf of Horsham Rural City Council. Similar surveys will be undertaken across Victorian councils during the coming months. The survey has been designed to assess the performance of the Horsham Rural City Council across a range of measures to identify ways to provide improvement or more effective service delivery to residents. The survey will involve interviews conducted amongst a representative sample of residents.
We appreciate you taking the time to assist us with your valuable feedback. Please be assured that your details and individual responses are confidential. Only the overall results are shared with council.

McMannus Road, Pimpinio
Council has received a request to name the section of road located between the Western Highway and Buloke Lane, Pimpinio (see map below). It has been proposed that this section of road be named McManusRoad in honour of the Macmanus family, who were early settlers and landowners int he Pimpinio district for over 125 years.
Thamm Road, Pimpinio
Council has received a further request to name the seciton of road located north of the Pimpinio Uniting Church, between Pimpinio School Road and Church Street (see map below). It has been proposed that this section of road be named Thamm Road in honour of the Thamm family, who were the first family to build on this road and have a long history of farming in the Pimpinio area.
Harris Road (located between Geodetic and Blue Ribbon Roads) is shown on some Council maps as Aerodrome Road, however, on all official State maps it is known as Harris Road.
The Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority (ETSA), which is responsible for operating the 000 service, uses road names based on official sources and this incorrect signage has the potential to cause delays for emergency services when tasks are assigned on this road.
To avoid confusion, it is proposed that this section of road be named only as Harris Road. It is also proposed that signage be updated to indicate that the road was previously known as Aerodrome Road.
