Transitioning Towns Toolbox

  • Year: 2013
  • Publisher: RDA Loddon Mallee
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: Victoria

This booklet has been designed as a resource to assist small towns in the Loddon Mallee that find themselves in transition. Small towns dominate the Loddon Mallee landscape and the majority of them are currently undergoing significant social and economic shift. Not all the forces propelling this transition are linked to the economy, however, major structural adjustment in the agrifood sector and changes to Victoria’s irrigation infrastructure are among the primary factors that have impacted and created change within these communities.

‘Transformative Towns’ is one of seven regional strategic priorities identified by regional leaders for Loddon Mallee. The Transformative Towns priority aims to create shared understanding of the changing nature of small towns and settlements and how they can best transition to meet their future needs.
