Consultation now ends on the 16 March for DELWPs Draft Land Use Plan in response to requests for an extension from a number of community organisations.

Overview

Following the closure of the mine and power station north of Anglesea in 2015, the Anglesea Futures Community Conversations was established by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Surf Coast Shire Council and Parks Victoria.

These conversations provides for community discussion on a range of issues including future land use, the heath, and water.

Read the Draft Land Use Plan

DELWP has prepared the Anglesea Futures Draft Land Use Plan. The plan seeks to establish future uses for public and private land north of Anglesea following the closure of the coal mine and power station.

The Draft Land Use Plan is the culmination of a range of community engagement activities since the Anglesea Futures Community Conversations series commenced in 2015.

The proposed land use for most of the study area includes conservation and recreational uses. Some land that has been previously modified and has limited environmental values, is being proposed for alternative land uses, including tourism to support the regional economy.

The consultation period ends on the 16 March 2018.

Your feedback will inform changes and the finalisation of the Land Use Plan.
