Your Latrobe - A Community Conversation

Y0ur Latrobe banner

Your Latrobe is a project created to collect community feedback to help develop a Community Vision, Council Plan, Financial Plan, Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan and Asset Plan. 

The thoughts of you, our community, are important in helping Council understand what you aspire Latrobe City to be for you, your family, friends and community.  What it is you believe our City needs to prosper and succeed, and for our community to be healthy and happy.

We all want to live in a community where we can enjoy the best possible quality of life, that is why we are asking you, our community, to take the time to imagine what Latrobe City looks like. What does our region boast that you want to maintain, increase or what are the missing pieces that our community needs to ensure that we meet community aspirations.

Over the coming months, we'll be gathering your ideas to help us plan for the future.  A series of community listening posts activities and an online survey will allow you to join Council in the conversation.

  • Your Latrobe Survey

    We want to hear from you to help us understand what you aspire Latrobe City to be for you, your family, friends and community.  What it is you believe our City needs to prosper and succeed, and for our community to be healthy and happy.

    Community Group Conversation

    Community groups can win a $1000 gift voucher.

    We all want to live in a community where we can enjoy the best possible quality of life.

    What does our region boast that you want to maintain or what are the missing pieces that our community needs to ensure we meet the community’s aspirations?

    Community groups, organisations and sporting clubs are invited to complete the Community Group Conversation as part of the Your Latrobe community engagement project and your community group will go into the draw to win a $1000 gift voucher from a Latrobe City business of your choice.

    It’s easy! As a group, organisation or club, join the conversation, which can be done in person or via an online meeting. Following the instructions in the toolkit, work through the four questions as a group or print, hand write or type into the conversation toolkit and post it to Latrobe City Council, PO BOX 264, Morwell VIC 3840. You could also hand deliver your toolkit responses to our Customer Service Centres or Libraries. 

    All feedback is required by Wednesday 30 June, 2021.

  • Your Latrobe Banners Community Panel

    Community Panel

    A Community Panel is a group of people who will sign up to share their ideas about the future of Latrobe City. They will be actively involved in a series of engagement workshops and at the end of the process present their recommendations to Council. 

    The panel members will represent a range of community perspectives and will be selected at random from different demographics, sectors or interest groups within the Latrobe City. The task of the panel is to develop a draft Latrobe City Community Vision to guide decision-making and to work to provide input to Council in shaping the new Latrobe City Council Plan and Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plans for 2021-2025, along with the 10 year Financial Plan.

    View Community Panel FAQ

    Thousands of Latrobe City households will receive a letter inviting them to participate in the Your Latrobe community panel.

    The mail out began before the recent flood and storm across Latrobe City. Latrobe City Council apologises to community members who have been impacted by the flood and storm, and received, or will receive, a letter from us.

    Council has been working with Federation University to find panel members from across our municipality. To some, it may seem like bad timing to continue but the work is even more important now. The work of the community panel will help Council decide its priorities for the next four years and beyond.

    If you haven’t received a letter of invitation, but want to have your say, complete the Your Latrobe survey.
