Corangamite land rezoning to rejuvenate regional tourism

16 /11/ 2012 Comments are Closed

The Victorian Government’s recent decision to rezone land within the Corangamite Shire to better accommodate tourism activity has been welcomed by Victoria’s peak tourism industry body, saying the move is a positive step in rejuvenating regional tourism product in Victoria.

VTIC Chief Executive Dianne Smith says of the announcement by Minister for Planning, the Hon. Matthew Guy MLC, “The rezoning of land in Corangamite Shire will allow the tourism industry in this region to grow and be even more successful into the future.

“With breathtaking natural assets such as the Twelve Apostles, it’s pleasing that industry has now been given the freedom to invest in innovative, sustainable tourism product in Corangamite Shire.

“We congratulate the Minister for Planning on making this decision, and acknowledge the hard work and determination of the Corangamite Shire Council in making such a solid case for this reform. Clearly, the communities in Corangamite Shire benefit greatly from tourism activity, and both local and state governments have acknowledged that with these changes.

“Allowing further private investment around key Victorian landmarks will add depth to the state’s tourism product offering and increase the benefits the visitor economy brings to regional Victoria.”

The re-zoning of land in Corangamite Shire will open up 17 sites across the region for private investment in tourism infrastructure and product.
