How do you imagine Blairgowrie in the future? With the help of the local community groups, we’re engaging with Blairgowrie locals to highlight existing community projects, active community groups as well as Council adopted strategies and projects. Consultation with Blairgowrie will provide an easy to understand map outlining key projects for the area.

We are particularly keen to hear from young people. You can help share your vision by letting us know what you enjoy in your community or your ideas for the future. Upload a picture of your favourite Blairgowrie spot or idea and go in the draw to win a $50 JB HiFi voucher.

The Peninsula is an empowered and resilient community and Blairgowrie has shown many times that when we work collaboratively, great things can happen.
