We are seeking your views on issues related to the EPA and ways government can respond to future challenges facing you.

A major independent inquiry has been commissioned by the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water to look at the future role of the Environment Protection Authority (EPA), Victoria’s environmental regulator.

The Ministerial Advisory Committee for the Inquiry will be holding a public consultation session in Frankston on Tuesday 13 October, at the Frankston Football Club, The Graham Room, Plowman Place, from 5.30-7.30pm.

Local residents are encouraged to attend to raise matters of concern and share future ideas. Key themes to be discussed include land use planning, public health, emergency management, climate change, better regulatory approaches, and ways the EPA can effectively consult with the community.

Register your attendance by visiting http://www.epa-inquiry.vic.gov.au or by phoning (03) 9948 2882.

Chair of the Ministerial Advisory Committee, Ms Penny Armytage said this is a once-in-a-generation chance for the public to have a significant influence on the way the EPA operates into the future.

“We are seeking direct feedback from the Victorian community to better understand individual, rural and business needs to meet Victoria’s future challenges,” Ms Armytage said.

Public consultation meetings will be held in 17 locations across the State including Wodonga, Shepparton, Werribee, Warrnambool, Coburg, Bairnsdale, Traralgon, Richmond, Horsham, Ballarat, Bendigo, Frankston, Geelong, Sunshine, Dandenong, Ringwood and Mildura.

The Inquiry will report to the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water by 31 March 2016.
