The next step in the redevelopment of the former Gippsland Ports slipway in the heart of Lakes Entrance is about to commence.
Gippsland East Nationals MP, Tim Bull, who last year obtained an assurance from the Environment Minister that the slipway redevelopment project was ready to proceed to an expressions of interest stage, has congratulated the vision, perseverance and most of all the active collaboration of local agencies in achieving this result.
“The Liberal Nationals kick started the slipway redevelopment discussion back in 2013 which has brought together the expertise of Gippsland Ports, East Gippsland Shire and Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning,” Mr Bull said.
The soon to be released prospectus for the redevelopment of the site marks an important step that shows how inter agency collaboration and goodwill delivers great results.
“Last year I followed up with the Environment Minister on progress with the slipway redevelopment.
“This resulted in an assurance that the community’s aspirations for the site had been incorporated into the overarching Lakes Entrance Foreshore Management Plan and that developers would soon be invited to submit expressions of interest for its transformation.
“It is a credit to all involved that they have remained focussed on this exceptional opportunity to create a significant visitor destination for Lakes Entrance.
“It’s this kind of ‘stronger together’ attitude that builds community cohesion and boosts investor confidence and I look forward to the next exciting chapter in the project’s development,” Mr Bull said.
