Community engaged planning

Council officers from the Strategic Planning and City Assets teams will be joined by the representatives from the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority to assist the community with any questions.

Mayor of Latrobe City, Councillor Kellie O'Callaghan said, "You can call in at any time during the session or book a 1:1 meeting with a council officer if you'd prefer. Officers will assist with explaining the proposed changes and how it impacts your property, as well as answering any questions you might have about drainage and flooding," said Cr O'Callaghan.
