LCC Statewide Assessment of Public Land Use (1988)


  • Draft
  • In progress
  • Completed


The aim of the Statewide assessment published in July 1988 was primarily to review the work and procedures of the LCC since it commenced investigations in 1971.  At that time, the Council divided Victoria into 17 study areas and, in 1986, completed an initial investigation of the whole State when the recommendations for the 17th study area, the Wimmera, were presented to the government. It was hoped the report would give some measure of the effectiveness of Council in attempting to balance competing aspirations for the various values of public land.

The report was also published to allow all those with an interest in the use of public land and the work of the Council to make written or verbal comments.  The Council intended to consider all such comments, then prepare a summary publication detailing the major outcomes of its Statewide assessment. 

The study was not regionally based and contained no recommendations. It was effectively a report card both on the activities of the LCC and on the state of public land use in Victoria. As well as assessing the LCC’s own progress, this study also examined the extent to which the public land use recommendations had been formally implemented, with some sobering conclusions.

A second statewide assessment was carried out by VEAC from 2014 to 2017.
