LCC Gippsland Lakes Hinterland Area (1980-1983)


  • Draft
  • In progress
  • Completed


Notices showing the boundary of the study area and advising that the investigation was to be carried out were published in the Victoria Government Gazette, and in local and other Victorian newspapers in April and May 1980.  A descriptive report was published in April 1982.  The Council received 211 submissions from individuals, associations, companies, and local and State government bodies.  After considering these submissions, and having visited the study area, the Council formulated its proposed recommendations, which were published in September 1982.  The Council received 345 submissions commenting on these proposals. The Council published its final recommendations in February 1983.

Despite the high level of public land in this relatively small study area (58%) only 12% was recommended for parks and reserves, the lowest of all original study areas and reviews. The investigation was one of the first to discuss the management of cultural sites with local Aboriginal communities.

The descriptive report, proposed recommendations and final recommendations are available from this page.

Government decisions on the final recommendations can be found on this website here.
