OPEN

Grampians Central West Group: 1 August to 2 September 2016 participate.sustainability.vic.gov.au/grampiansplan

Gippsland Group: 12 August to 23 September 2016 participate.sustainability.vic.gov.au/gippslandplan

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the purpose of the regional implementation plans?

The purpose of the regional implementation plans is to identify local waste infrastructure needs and how these will be met over the next 10 years for each waste and resource recovery region (7 in total), the plans will be:

  • Guided by the 30 year Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan (state infrastructure plan) strategic directions and the needs and priorities of the local communities

  • Established with neighbouring waste and resource recovery groups (WRRGs) to maximise opportunities to share resources, minimise costs and introduce innovation and job creation.

Once these plans are developed they will be used to update the state infrastructure plan by incorporating the regional priorities and information captured by the regional implementation plans.


2. What difference will a regional implementation plan make?

The regional implementation plans will provide valuable planning information on future waste and resource recovery priorities for local and state government. They will provide a level of certainty to promote the right circumstances for industry investment.

Each of the regional implementation plans will provide an understanding of their region’s current waste infrastructure, environmental and financial performance, community ideas and concerns and projected waste volumes, urban growth and industry demands. This is to ensure each region has an appropriate plan for their projected waste volume.
