Great Southern rail trail

Council is keen to hear your feedback on the draft Great Southern Rail Trail (GSRT) Visitation and Marketing Plan. The Plan aims to set a direction to help elevate the status of the GSRT and increase recognition and visitation. You can provide feedback at Great Southern Rail Trail - Visitation and Marketing Plan page. The public exhibition closes on 2 June, 2022.

Affordable housing strategy

To help support South Gippslanders who find themselves in need of social or affordable housing, council have created a draft Social and Affordable Housing Strategy. This strategy highlights the opportunities we have at council to support more social and affordable housing, including advocating for services and supporting providers of social and affordable housing to invest in South Gippsland. You can provide feedback at the 'Social and affordable housing strategy' page. The public exhibition closes on 10 June, 2022.
