Share your view: Great South Coast residents have until Thursday to have their say about the opportunities and challenges facing the community.

Great South Coast Regional Partnership chairwomanEmily Lee-Ack said the Victorian Government launched thepartnerships to give rural and regional Victorians a greater say.

A regional assembly,to be held in Port Fairy in October 6, willdiscuss and debate the region’s priorities, which will then be delivered to theVictorian Government.

Ms Lee-Ack said there had beenstrong feedback about the need for improved roads and transport networks, anemphasis on educationandtraining,visitor economy andtourism.

Respondents’visions for the region includegreatercultural diversity,educational opportunities, more employment for youthand a region thatvaluesenvironment, culture and the arts.

One person surveyed wantsa community that attracts companies and industries, while another would like to see “athriving 21st century economy that’s Australia’s dairy, eco-tourism and green energy capital”.

One respondent was more specific and called for a bike path from Allansford to Warrnambool.

Issues and topics raised onlinewill help form part of the regional assembly discussions.

“This is a great opportunity for people to offer feedback directly to the government and tell them what the priorities are for our region,” Ms Lee-Acksaid.

She said while there had been a good response, she would like as many people as possible to participate in the survey before it closed on Thursday.

“The better informed the partnership is, the better the quality of our work will be in terms of delivering the voiceof the community into government,” Ms Lee-Acksaid.

“We know that’s something that people really value. We want to do our absolute best to be that conduit and connect the voices of our community very firmly and directly into government.

“(At the assembly) we want to hear from people who are hugely passionate about their community, have some real fire in their belly about what they think will make a difference, or what it is they really love and want to see maintained,” Ms Lee-Ack said.

The Great South Coast Partnershipencompasses Warrnambool City andCorangamite,Glenelg,Moyne andSouthern Grampians shires.

It is one ofnine Victorian regional partnerships which will hold anassembly between October and December.
