Dinner Plain Master Plan Strategy

The Dinner Plain Master Plan Strategy has been adopted by Council. It will be used to guide investment and development throughout the village over the next 5 to 10 years.

There are 6 projects that have been identified by the Dinner Plain Advisory Group as first priorities for further development and completion. We now invite you to give your view on which projects you think should happen first. You can do that by writing to us at submissions@alpineshire.vic.gov.au or by marking a priority setting sheet from 1 to 6 in order of the projects you think need to be carried out.

Key points to remember
1. The Council budget for Dinner Plain has an annual amount of about $250,000 for new projects
2. It is preferable to try to leverage Council funds for major projects – it is likely to be some years before Dinner Plain projects will be eligible following both the federal and state governments’ contributions towards the funding of snow making, tubing and other adventure infrastructure over the last two years.
3. Some of the projects will rely on other organisations being involved – Extension to Dinner Plain School – Bright P-12 College and the Fire station incorporating community usage - CFA.

The 6 projects are listed below and you can use this form to send us your priorities. You can read the full Master Plan Strategy at the bottom of the list of projects.
