In December 2012, the Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan 2012 was tabled in Parliament by the Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Ryan Smith.
The Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan 2012 sets out a framework for the development, promotion, management and use of Victoria’s six alpine resorts: Falls Creek, Mt Hotham, Mt Buller, Mt Stirling, Mt Baw Baw and Lake Mountain.
The vision of the strategic plan is for Victoria’s alpine resorts to be vibrant, growing and sustainable places, delivering alpine recreational and tourism experiences that are available to all.
The plan outlines six strategic objectives:
Strategic Objective 1: Enhancing the visitor experience and developing resorts
Strategic Objective 2: Delivering resort services and infrastructure efficiently and accountably
Strategic Objective 3: Building partnerships
Strategic Objective 4: Respecting the alpine environment
Strategic Objective 5: Broadening access opportunities
Strategic Objective 6: Regulatory reform
The Alpine Resorts (Management) Act 1997 requires the Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council to conduct a five-yearly review of its strategic plan.
Extensive public consultation was conducted. A total of 250 people participated in workshops in Melbourne and at the resorts, and 66 submissions were received.
The Mount Hotham Resort Management Board wishes to thank everyone who participated in the development of and consultation on the Plan. Your input has been extremely valuable in helping finalise the plan for Government endorsement.
