Latrobe Valley and Gippsland Transition Plan

Help shape your community’s future!

Draft Transition Plan Released – Shaping the future of Latrobe Valley and Gippsland

We are building a Transition Plan for the Latrobe Valley and Gippsland that will help us navigate the future of the region together. Over the past few months, we have been gathering thoughts and reflections from people right across the Latrobe Valley and Gippsland.

We are thankful for the open and generous intent shown by the hundreds of people who have shared their hopes, dreams and aspirations for our region’s future.

From what we have heard so far, the draft plan sets out a shared vision for the community in 2035 that:

  • identifies roles and opportunities for action across government, industry and the community and be accompanied by an action plan to track progress.
  • describes how Gippsland can create quality, long-term jobs, retrain and re-skill workers in transitioning industries and improve the health and wellbeing of the community.
