The governance of the Great Ocean Road Region includes a myriad of policies, legislation, regulation, regional strategies and more than fourteen responsible public entities including five councils, two coastal committees, two water corporations, two catchment management authorities, Parks Victoria, VicRoads and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

The Great Ocean Road Taskforce (the Taskforce) was established to review the effectiveness of current governance arrangements and recommend governance reforms by the end of 2018. The purpose of the reforms is to strengthen protections of the landscape setting, improve the visitor experience, provide greater certainty in land-use planning and attract investment proposals that will benefit visitors and local communities.

The Taskforce would like to hear your views on the ideas in Governance of the Great Ocean Road Region Issues Paper and any other ideas you may have about improving the management and oversight of the Great Ocean Road and its landscapes.

Non-residential ratepayers are invited to participate in a Community Open House session to be held:

WHERE: 8 Nicholson Street (foyer), East Melbourne

DATE: 16 April 2018

TIME: 4.30pm to 6.30pm

This will provide non-residential ratepayers with the opportunity to have a face-to-face discussion with the project team.
