What's New

Development of a new Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan

The ARCC is developing a new alpine resorts strategic plan entitled, "Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan (2019) - responding to a changing climate". The Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan sets the future strategic direction for Victoria’s Alpine Resorts and the ARCC has committed to offering all stakeholders an opportunity to have their say.

Our stakeholder engagement activities are now complete and the results are available from our Engage Victoria site. We would like to thank everyone that participated in our stakeholder workshops or made an online submission.

The ARCC will be using the outcomes of our stakeholder engagement to inform the development of the strategic plan which will take place over the coming months. The ARCC will continue to provide updates as the development of the strategic plan progresses.
