Help shape a better Bass Coast

  • What would make living, visiting or investing in Bass Coast better?
  • What would you like to see retained or improved?
  • What health and wellbeing issues are you concerned about?
  • What would you like the Council to achieve in the next four years?

These are some of the questions we are asking our community over January to help Council develop our direction over the next four years. This will be an opportunity for all of us to shape a better future for Bass Coast. We believe our community must be active participants and collaborators in the development of our future plan.

In another successful partnership between Bass Coast Shire Council and South Gippsland Shire Council the Civic Meeting Space (including Council Chambers) now has more efficient lighting and an efficient heating and cooling system. This work was undertaken with the help of the Federal Department of Industry and Science grant of $124,693 shared between the two Councils. The project is expected to reduce the energy use of Bass Coast Shire Council by 57.4 tonnes of CO2-e (greenhouse gas) per year. The new heating and cooling system is zoned which means that the temperature in individual meeting rooms can be controlled independently. A switch to LED lights has also increased the level of energy efficiency in this area.

Bass Coast and South Gippsland contributed combined amount of $74,170 to the project.
