About the Project

The Alpine Resorts Governance Reform Project aims to ensure the alpine sector has a governance and operating model that:

  • enables effective planning to adapt to the impacts of climate change
  • enhances the public land and environmental values derived from the alpine resorts
  • continues to provide economic and social benefits to surrounding regions and across Victoria
  • facilitates collaboration across the sector and ensures effective land management
  • enables a sector-wide strategic approach to issues associated with infrastructure investment.

The project scope includes:

  • management and governance arrangements for all Victorian alpine resorts (including Alpine Resort Management Boards and the Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council)
  • legislation governing the land designated as alpine resorts.

Stakeholder Consultation

Victorians who live, work and play in Victoria’s alpine resorts have extensive knowledge of the resorts and can make a valuable contribution to the process of reforming their governance.

The consultation process provided:

  • a discussion paper summarising options for the management structures and legal entities appropriate for the alpine resorts
  • a series of stakeholder workshops (by invitation only)
  • opportunity to submit online written submissions.

The government will include stakeholder feedback in the factors it considers in determining the future governance model of the Victorian alpine resorts.

NOTE: The Stakeholder Consultation Process closed on 1 MARCH 2017.
