My question is to the Minister for Planning.

Acknowledging the overwhelming support from the Bellarine community regarding the implementation of the Bellarine distinctive area and landscape, could the minister please provide an update on the progress of this policy?

My predecessor the Honourable Lisa Neville worked tirelessly alongside the Bellarine community to safeguard the unique aspects of our region, and thanks to her work we now have a comprehensive 50-year policy in place for the Bellarine, one that not only prioritises our environment preservation but also protects our valuable and historic centres.

The Bellarine community shares my profound passion for preserving and enhancing our beloved community for generations to come. It is our collective goal to ensure that the integrity of our community remains protected and looked after rather than degraded.

Together we are committed to securing a sustainable and vibrant future for the Bellarine community.
