Over the last two years, we have been developing the Grampians Central West Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan (Regional Implementation Plan), which identifies local waste and resource recovery infrastructure needs and how these will be met over the next 10 years for the Grampians Central West region in support of the statewide plan.

The Regional Implementation Plan provides valuable planning information on future waste and resource recovery priorities for local and state government. It provides a level of certainty to promote the right circumstances for industry investment. The Regional Implementation Plan also provides an understanding of our region’s current waste and resource recovery infrastructure, environmental and financial performance, community ideas and concerns and projected waste volumes, urban growth and industry demands. This ensures our region has an appropriate plan for our projected waste volume.

In 2015, Sustainability Victoria, launched the 30-year Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan (state waste plan) on behalf of the Victorian Government.

The plan is the first of its kind in Australia to provide a long-term vision and roadmap to guide future planning for waste and resource recovery infrastructure in the state.

The vision of the plan is to develop an integrated statewide waste and resource recovery system that continues to provide an essential community service.

Information on the state waste plan, and a copy of the plan can be found on SV’s website: http://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/our-priorities/statewide-waste-planning/2015-2020-priorities/statewide-waste-and-resource-recovery-infrastructure-plan

The seven Waste and Resource Recovery Groups (including Grampians Central West WRRG) then developed their Regional Implementation Plans. Together with the state waste plan, these documents provide a framework for the state’s waste and resource recovery system for the next 10 – 30 years.

How was the Plan developed?

The plan was developed in close collaboration with Sustainability Victoria, Environment Protection Authority Victoria and the Department of Environment Land, Water and Planning.

GCW WRRG also asked for perspectives and feedback from industry, councils and community stakeholders as part of the plan’s development.

Information collected during the Consultation sessions, which were undertaken during June – August 2016, are included below.
