Community workshops for the regional land use study

There are a number of opportunities for community members to get involved and provide views and details of their local knowledge and aspirations for the potential land uses of the areas surrounding the rehabilitated mines. This will assist the government to create a shared land use vision with the community and assess future land uses for these areas.

The state government will be holding a series of workshops with key technical stakeholders throughout May, June and August 2018.

To have your ideas inform the preliminary vision, please attend one of three public workshops being held in August. While there is a focus area for each of the workshops, they will each also consider the regional context.

Latrobe Valley Social History and Heritage Study

DELWP is undertaking a social history and heritage study of the Latrobe Valley. This project will  gather knowledge from local community representatives, in partnership with representatives from the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation.

The study will document the social lives of the Latrobe Valley communities over time to provide deeper insight into the connections between the Valley and its people, and of the history and heritage that have made each what they are today. The social and industrial history of the region has been defined  by agriculture, the impacts of immigration, manufacturing and energy generation. The report will consider the experience of these  themes by the people of the Valley and how this has influenced their identity. Upon completion the report will be made publicly available.

In addition to the documentation of the social history of the Latrobe Valley, the project will identify opportunities to recognise and celebrate Latrobe Valley’s  history and heritage.  An appreciation of heritage themes, artefacts and sites which reflect key social history will be assessed. Items which have strong community importance will be considered and opportunities for their recognition and celebration identified.

The Study will be used to inform heritage and land planning through identification of places of significance and historic themes of importance.
