Shaping The Future Of The Loddon Campaspe Region

09 September 2016

Loddon Campaspe locals now have an unprecedented chance to shape the future of their region.

Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford announced the start of online consultation for the Loddon Campaspe Partnership members today ahead of its first Regional Assembly to be held in Bendigo on October 19.

A new website recently launched by the Andrews Labor Government now gives people living, working and studying in Loddon Campaspe the chance to share their thoughts and provide ideas about local opportunities and challenges that span every government portfolio.

Each of the nine Regional Partnerships will host an assembly involving at least 100 people, including community members, Members of Parliament and local government coming together to discuss priorities for each region.

They can also use the website to register their interest in attending the Loddon Campaspe Regional Assembly.

Following the assemblies, each Partnership will deliver key recommendations straight into the heart of government through the new Rural and Regional Ministerial Committee made up of seven members of Cabinet and chaired by Ms Pulford.

The Loddon Campaspe Regional Partnership area includes the shires of Campaspe, Central Goldfields, Loddon, Macedon Ranges, Mount Alexander and the City of Greater Bendigo.

Increasing participation in education, creating better transport solutions, attracting more investment and local jobs, improving health and wellbeing, and working towards better Internet and mobile phone services are the types of issues which could be addressed by this Partnership.
