LCC South-Western Area District 1 Review (1980-1983)


  • Draft
  • In progress
  • Completed


Notices showing the boundary of the study area and advising that a review was to be carried out were published in the Victorian Government Gazette, and in local and other Victorian newspapers in June 1980. A descriptive report was published in September 1981.  The Council received 55 submissions on the future use of public land, 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 October 1982. The Council received 55 submissions commenting on these proposals. The final recommendations were published in March 1983.

This region was the first to be reviewed by the LCC.  In the Council’s original investigation of this area from 1971 to 1973, as well as recommending land for parks, various other conservation reserves, and hard-wood production, allocated substantial areas as 'land with no primary use'. The Council indicated that as community needs changed and more information became available it would be necessary to review the use of this land. The recommendations refer mostly to the land designated as ‘land with no primary use' in the 1973 study, although the Council also recommended some other changes, such as the inclusion of the Bailey's Rocks scenic and recreation reserve into a State park.  

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

The recommendations supersede those in the original South Western Area District 1 study (1971-1973).  Government decisions on the final recommendations can be found on this website here.
