Council has unanimously voted to defer the implementation of the decision made at the 8 November Council Meeting to demolish the Latrobe Visitor Information Centre building, and will instead undertake additional engagement with the community to determine other options that may be available.
Council would like to acknowledge those who attended the community meeting and each of the individuals who made submissions at the meeting on Monday night and thank them for the extensive research they have undertaken on the building’s history.
As a next step, Council is committed to working closely with interested community members and groups to arrange a heritage assessment for the building. Council will also seek to engage with the Department of Transport regarding the future use of the land.
We continue to provide updates as this process progresses.
