During the third quarter of 2014, over 4,000 stakeholders, business operators, resort partners, club lodge members, visitors and investors got involved in the master plan process and had their say as to what should be protected or changed in Falls Creek.
The resort master plan received in-principle support from the Minister for Environment, Land Water and Planning and has been submitted to the Minister for Planning
A VISION FOR FALLS CREEK
The Masterplan 2016 is a long term vision for the Village and surrounds, and when finally approved by the Victorian Minister for the Environment, it will guide and direct town planning, investment, and operational management decision making in Falls Creek.
The plan is designed to increase year-round visitation, maximise utilisation of existing accommodation and improve the overall commercial viability of the whole resort. Key drivers of the plan include defined activity precincts, an integrated transport and access solution, no additional commercial bed numbers until dictated by demand and an overall increase in car parking spaces.
STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT PLAN
Falls Creek's Resort Management Board presents Falls Creek's Strategic Management Plan 2013 - "A Pathway to the Future".
The Alpine Resorts (Management) Act 1997, requires resorts to prepare strategic management plans and to review these plans as directed by the Minister. In 2012, the Government released the Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan. In response to the Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan 2012, Falls Creek Alpine Resort Management Board is pleased to submit the Falls Creek Masterplan 2013 - “Pathway to the Future”.
This plan was the product of committed and constructive feedback from Falls Creek stakeholders. The focus of the Strategic Management Plan is to promote and develop Falls Creek as a vibrant and distinctive village offering Australia’s most memorable alpine experiences.
