PREMIER Daniel Andrews will visit Bendigo on Wednesday night for the first regional assembly, an opportunity to debate and discuss the region’s priorities.
The assembly is the next step in the Loddon Campaspe Regional Partnership’s engagement with community, industry and government.
People identified investing more in local jobs and improving health and wellbeing as the top priorities for the region in the lead up to the assembly.
Increased participation in education, and better roads and public transport also rated highly.
“We’ve had a wonderful response from the community throughout Loddon Campaspe region,” regional partnership chair Nigel McGuckian said.
“I know participants will provide their experience and knowledge of this region to ensure the most important priorities are identified.”
The assembly will be an annual event, allowing the regional partnership to consult on priorities before directing them to the government.
A summary of the outcomes, ideas and recommendations will be published online after the assembly, and Mr McGuckian will brief the rural and regional ministerial committee on priorities for the region.
