Our Partnership

The Loddon Campaspe Regional Partnership is one of nine such Partnerships across the state, established by the Victorian Government in 2016, recognising that local communities are in the best position to understand the challenges and opportunities faced by their region.

Over the past four years, our Partnership has heard from thousands of people living and working in Loddon Campaspe, including through three Regional Assemblies.

We've taken your voice to the heart of the Victorian Government, and we look forward to hearing from you going forward.

Regional Roundtables

Each of the nine Regional Partnerships hosted a virtual roundtable over May/June to hear directly from community and business leaders across regional Victoria about the local impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The insights and evidence from the roundtables are helping us better understand the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on local communities and are paving the way for recovery through identifying the unique challenges and opportunities each region faces in driving social and economic recovery.

Working in collaboration with the Regional Partnerships, Victoria’s five regionally based Regional Development Australia (RDA) committees discussed place-based responses to local issues to align Victorian and national efforts across all three tiers of government.
