The Anglesea Futures Community Conversations is a community forum coordinated by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Surf Coast Shire Council and Parks Victoria.

It provides an important vehicle for community discussion on a range of issues including future land use, the heath, water and the future implications for the Anglesea region after the closure of the coalmine and power station on 31 August 2015.

This year the conversation series is focused on the future use of the Anglesea power station, coal mine and the Anglesea Heath

Land Use Plan

A Land Use Plan is being prepared to provide a framework for re-use of Anglesea Futures study area to the north of Anglesea including the power station and coal mine. The Land Use Plan will be a high level strategic document and will set land uses for different areas. It can consider whether different types of broad land uses are appropriate for an area, i.e. recreation, community, residential, retail, industrial, public reserves etc.

The Land Use Plan informs future decisions on activities, management, protection and any development on the land. The Land Use Plan will need to be informed by broader government policy including the Anglesea Structure Plan and the recently adopted Guiding Principles for the study area as shown below.
