More than 80 permanent and part-time residents attended a Community Convention at Inverloch on Saturday (24 August 2002) as part of the Inverloch Design Framework Project.

"The Inverloch Design Framework Project aims to establish a vision that relates to how development and land uses in the area will be managed in the future," said Cr John Gains, Mayor of Bass Coast Shire Council. "Once this vision is established, a framework will be developed to achieve that vision."

At the Community Convention, participants worked together to establish the vision for Inverloch. Some of the ideas that were discussed in relation to the vision included enhancing the natural and low profile scale of development in Inverloch, providing a safe and pleasurable environment for walkers and cyclists, and developing a vibrant commercial town centre. Other issues discussed included town boundaries, neighbourhood character and traffic management.

General development issues in the area were also discussed. Bass Coast’s population is currently growing at 3.62% per annum, almost 3 times the state average. Inverloch is one of the fastest growing areas in the municipality and it is essential that sound planning is undertaken to manage this growth.

The next step in this project is for the input gained during the day to be summarised, discuss the outcomes with the project steering committee, and to produce a draft report.

It is expected the project will be finalised by December 2002.
