Naseby Community Plan

Naseby is located 10 minutes north of Ranfurly. The village lies at the foot of the Mount Ida Range and is on the edge of the Naseby forest. Having being founded in 1863 as part of the gold rush Naseby is renowned for its heritage aspect including gold mining relics and heritage buildings. There is also a wide range of recreational cycling opportunities associated with the forest and the winter sports facilities with the indoor curling rink , outdoor curling/skating rink and natural ice luge.

Naseby has a population of about 125 but in the holiday period this population may increase to about 4,000 people. The area is valued for its peace and quiet and as a retreat from peoples busy lives for those that have holiday homes there.

Some of the key points that came out of the plan include:
  • The local community association continues to advocate, provide direction and support on behalf of the local area.
  • Council continue to provide the existing building for the General Store and upgrade this building.
  • Lobby for better telecommunications and broadband access for the area.
  • Regular review of the fire evacuation plan.
  • Assess is there available land, appropriate zoning combined with appropriate methods to influence designs for future accommodation.
  • Create distinctive signage, in keeping with the new brand specifications, which explains the heritage and stories of the area.
  • Develop rules and guidelines for future sub-division and building construction in the Naseby area.
  • Look at developing a new footpath to the ice skating/curling rinks and also to the swimming dam via Derg St.
  • Develop a long term strategy for the water supply.
