The Loddon Campaspe Regional Partnership consults and engages with its community throughout the year. In 2019/20, this engagement will be through a small number of targeted deep dive meetings.
In previous years, the annual Regional Assembly has provided a large forum and focus for such engagement.
Read about the Loddon Campaspe Regional Assemblies below.
The Loddon Campaspe 2018 Regional Assembly was held on Thursday 3 May in Kyneton and was attended by close to 200 community members.
It was an opportunity to hear what the Partnership has achieved to date, and for participants to add their thoughts on our top priorities:
- The economy
- Early years
- Tracks, trails and tourism
It was great to see so many people there and to hear the depth of conversation.
A report was sent to attendees.
More than 200 people attended our 2017 Loddon Campaspe Regional Assembly in Bendigo in August, while close to 100 people attended our regional workshops in Echuca and Castlemaine, held in the run up to the Assembly.
Each was a chance for local people to tell Partnership members and Government Ministers and representatives what is important to us.
The main topics discussed at the Assembly were:
- Digital connectivity
- Environment and renewable energy
- Support for early years
- Skills and pathways to employment
- A growing economy.
Held in October, the 2016 Loddon Campaspe Regional Assembly was hugely successful as a first step in our engagement with community, industry and government. The energy and enthusiasm of the 200 people who joined us on the night was captured as they talked about what really matters to our region.
The night generated over 800 ideas which has informed the emerging priorities for the Loddon Campaspe region. Broadly the ideas sit within five key themes:
- Create the best possible start for every child
- A growing economy
- Be the healthy heart of Victoria
- A great environment to live.
