Vic­to­rian re­sorts strate­gic plan

Alpine News - - Front Page -

IN DE­CEM­BER 2012, the Alpine Re­sorts Strate­gic Plan 2012 was tabled in Par­lia­ment by the Min­is­ter for En­vi­ron­ment and Cli­mate Change, Ryan Smith.

The Alpine Re­sorts Strate­gic Plan 2012 sets out a frame­work for the de­vel­op­ment, pro­mo­tion, man­age­ment and use of Vic­to­ria’s six alpine re­sorts: Falls Creek, Mt Hotham, Mt Buller, Mt Stir­ling, Mt Baw Baw and Lake Moun­tain.

The vi­sion of the strate­gic plan is for Vic­to­ria’s alpine re­sorts to be vi­brant, grow­ing and sus­tain­able places, de­liv­er­ing alpine re­cre­ational and tourism ex­pe­ri­ences that are avail­able to all. The plan out­lines six strate­gic ob­jec­tives: Strate­gic Ob­jec­tive 1: En­hanc­ing the vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence and de­vel­op­ing re­sorts

Strate­gic Ob­jec­tive 2: De­liv­er­ing re­sort ser­vices and in­fra­struc­ture ef­fi­ciently and ac­count­ably

Strate­gic Ob­jec­tive 3: Build­ing part­ner­ships

Strate­gic Ob­jec­tive 4: Re­spect­ing the alpine en­vi­ron­ment;

Strate­gic Ob­jec­tive 5: Broad­en­ing ac­cess op­por­tu­ni­ties; Strate­gic Ob­jec­tive 6: Reg­u­la­tory re­form. The Alpine Re­sorts (Man­age­ment) Act 1997 re­quires the Alpine Re­sorts Co-or­di­nat­ing Coun­cil to con­duct a five-yearly re­view of its strate­gic plan.

Ex­ten­sive pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion was con­ducted and a to­tal of 250 peo­ple par­tic­i­pated in work­shops held in Mel­bourne and at the re­sorts, and 66 sub­mis­sions were re­ceived.

The Mt Buller and Mt Stir­ling Re­sort Man­age­ment would like to thank ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pated in the de­vel­op­ment of and con­sul­ta­tion on the plan.

This in­put has been ex­tremely valu­able in help­ing fi­nalise the plan for gov­ern­ment en­dorse­ment.
