Hot Topics – June 2013

25 /06/ 2013 Comments are Closed

Industry policy news in June has included the opening of expressions of interest for the Point Nepean Quarantine Station development and the commencement of consultation for the Shipwreck Coast Master Plan.

Point Nepean Quarantine Station – Expressions of interest sought

The Victorian Government is now calling for expressions of interest from those wanting to invest in the development of the historic Quarantine Station in the Point Nepean National Park. VTIC welcomed the release of the Point Nepean Master Plan earlier this year. For further information on the expression of interest process, visit the Department of Environment and Primary Industries website here.

Shipwreck Coast Master Plan

A new master plan for the Shipwreck Coast is being created by the Victorian Government, which will cover the area from Princetown to Boat Bay, including key attractions the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Sustainable tourism is a key opportunity for the region and this will be further explored in the master plan, a joint project between Parks Victoria, the Corangamite and Moyne shires and Tourism Victoria.

Small Business, Too Big To Ignore

The Small Business, Too Big To Ignore campaign provides a channel for the united voice of Australia’s small business owners and staff to be heard as we head towards a federal election. There are more than two million small businesses in Australia, employing more than seven million people. That’s more than 60 per cent of our workforce. Yet, for too many years, small business has been overtaxed, overregulated and overlooked by government.

This national campaign, being led by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and the state chambers, including VECCI, will unite the many voices of small business and show politicians that, together, small business is too big to ignore. To find out more and register your interest for this important initiative, visit www.toobigtoignore.org.au.
