YARRAM and District Histori-
cal Society launched its latest
book Street Names of Yarram
The book which was written by local
historian Margery Missen and inspired by
Jack Irving expanded on the street names
of Yarram, the history of the name and the
people behind them. Historical Society
vice president Elizabeth Wynne welcomed
everyone to the launch and introduced spe-
cial guest Linda Barraclough, representing
Wellington Shire who is helping towns such
as Yarram put together booklets like Street
Names of Yarram as part of the Celebrating
our Streets project.
The book launch followed a Satur-
day market by the historical society at
the Yarram Regent Theatre. Historical
society secretary Cate Remfry said the
market stall was quite successful with
many people snapping up a little piece of
excess history on the day. “We have a lot
of multiple items from our archives and
storage rooms and we just cannot keep it
all so we thought a market stall would be
a good idea and it was quiet successful,”
Ms Remfry said.

THE Minister for Planning
has approved the rezoning
of land in Port Albert to cre-
ate new opportunities for ru-
ral residential lifestyle lots
The amendment was adopted
by Wellington Shire Council on
15 March 2016. It rezones areas of
land in Port Albert, making it avail-
able for rural lifestyle growth, and
streamlines some of the planning
controls in the township.
Wellington Shire Council’s Gen-
eral Manager Development, John
Websdale, explained this was a wel-
“People want rural lifestyle op-
portunities like this, especially in
attractive locations like Port Albert,”
“We look forward to seeing Port
Albert’s future growth as a result
of this amendment’s approval,” Mr
Council had requested the Minis-
ter for Planning rezone further land
in Port Albert for rural lifestyle lot
The Minister for Planning has
elected not to rezone extra land at this
stage, indicating that a further plan-
ning scheme amendment should be
pursued if this outcome is sought.
Council will consider its position
in response to this decision at its Or-
dinary Council meeting on June 21
