The Alpine Resorts Governance Reform Project aims to ensure the alpine sector has a governance and operating model that:

  • enhances the public land and environmental values derived from the alpine resorts
  • continues to provide economic and social benefits to surrounding regions and across Victoria
  • facilitates collaboration across the sector and ensures effective land management
  • enables a sector-wide strategic approach to issues associated with infrastructure investment.

The project scope includes:

  • management and governance arrangements for all Victorian alpine resorts (including Alpine Resort Management Boards and the Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council)
  • legislation governing the land designated as alpine resorts.
