Activating Lake Eildon’s economy

Constituency question

August 5, 2021

Ms MAXWELL (Northern Victoria) (12:43): My question is for the Minister for Regional Development, and it relates to the launch of the Lake Eildon master plan.

My community welcomes the government’s funding of $150,000 toward planning the projects to activate Lake Eildon’s economy.

In speaking with local people about the master plan, their view is that this certainly places them at the starting gates, and the community is very keen to understand how the plan will be developed.

Activating the opportunities in Lake Eildon will require close collaboration between local governments and various state agencies and unlocking private investment opportunities, and so I ask the minister:

  • Who will have lead responsibility for this plan?
  • What are the terms of reference?
  • How will the lead agency be measured and held accountable?
