REGIONAL Development Victoria (RDV) will host a community meeting next Monday, November 28, to update the Corner Inlet community on the work and findings of the Long Jetty Project Control Group appointed by the Deputy Premier, Peter Ryan.
Mayor Warren Raabe is urging local residents and interested parties to attend this community consultation meeting which will run from 6.30pm to 8.30pm in the Ferry Terminal Building at Port Welshpool.
“Llew Vale will chair the meeting and the presentations will cover the process to date, the structural assessment and technical findings, what has been determined and the possible redevelopment options,” said Cr Raabe. “Naturally, there’ll be a general discussion period and RDV and the group are keen to hear the community’s feedback.”
The Long Jetty Project Control Group comprises representatives from RDV, Gippsland Ports, Department of Transport, the community and South Gippsland Shire Council.
Council will attend and take the opportunity to introduce the community to their exciting new Corner Inlet Tourism Development Project proposal which goes before Council today (Wednesday) for a funding allocation.
“This is a proactive initiative that will better position Council to secure appropriate grants from State and Federal Government to revitalise the Corner Inlet area, drawing more visitors and tourism focussed enterprises to the area,” added the Mayor.
If you would like to attend the meeting, please call Christian Stefani on 5662 9840 or email [email protected] to signify your intention. Tea and coffee will be provided at the end of the night.
