Lakes Entrance Growth and Adaptation Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

East Gippsland Shire Council, with support from the Victorian Government, is preparing a strategic plan for growth and adaptation in Lakes Entrance towards 2050.

The strategy will provide a framework for ensuring Lakes Entrance can grow positively into the future, support the needs of residents, and adapt to any challenges that it may face because of change brought about by growth or climate pressures such as flooding.

Council is working collaboratively with residents and business owners to deliver a strategy for a prosperous Lakes Entrance, which incorporates the aspirations of the community, creates a shared understanding of local issues and enables everyone to have a say in the town’s future. The project will run over two years.

Stage 2 of the process is now nearing completion and work has commenced on Stage 3 of the project which involves understanding and identifying those areas and assets of Lakes Entrance vulnerable to risk from natural hazards – specifically flooding - both now and in the future having considered the impacts of climate change.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the community engagement activities during the months of April and May 2018. All feedback from the survey, project hub and community workshop has been collected, reviewed and summarised in the Engagement Summary Report.
