LCC North Eastern Study Area District 1 (1971-1973)


  • Draft
  • In progress
  • Completed


When the LCC originally divided the state into study areas, the North-eastern Area was split into five districts.  The Council published separate reports and recommendations for the North-eastern Area District 1 and District 2, but amalgamated Districts 3, 4, and 5 and published a combined report and combined recommendations for these three districts.

Notices showing the boundary of the study area district 1 and advising that an investigation was to be carried out were published in June 1971.  A descriptive report was published in January 1973.  The Council received 100 submissions on the future use of public land from individuals, associations, companies, and local and State government bodies. After considering these submissions, and having visited the area, the Council formulated its proposed recommendations, which were published in July 1973.  The Council received 44 submissions commenting on these proposals.  The Council published its final recommendations in November 1973.

This study was the first to apply the LCC’s newly developed park categories with an array of new parks. Significant areas of forests not highly regarded for hardwood production were recommended for clearing and conversion to pines. Large areas of land remained uncommitted, allowing flexibility for future use.

The descriptive report, proposed recommendations and final recommendations are available from this page.

Districts 1,2, and 4 of the North-eastern study area were reviewed in the Benalla–Upper Murray review.  See North-eastern Area (Benalla–Upper Murray) Review (1984-1986). Link?
