LACAC - Lake Apex Community Advisory Committee - EOI

Project Overview

The Lake Apex Community Advisory Committee (LACAC) has been established to maximise long-term community outcomes of the entire Lake Apex-Lake Freeman precinct (the Precinct) by promoting and guiding development, protection, enhancement and sustainability of the precinct through a partnership between community stakeholders and Lockyer Valley Regional Council (Council).

The functions of the Lake Apex Community Advisory Committee include:

  • Monitoring the implementation of the Lake Apex Master Plan as a cooperative venture between Council and the broader community;
  • Reporting to Council and the wider community on the development and implementation of the Lake Apex Master Plan and the state of the Lake Apex-Lake Freeman wetlands.

LACAC operates as a voluntary partnership between the community and Council for identifying opportunities and concerns and developing ideas. Council makes the final decisions on implementation within the limitations of available budget and regulations, and operational priorities.

Council is seeking expressions of interest for additional members to particularly represent the following interest groups:

  • off-leash dog park users
  • skatepark users
  • general community use

Membership

To be eligible for membership on the Group, nominees from the community should:

  • Reside or work within, or be closely affiliated with, the Lockyer Valley Regional Council local government area
  • Have strong community links with users of the precinct or specific parts of it
  • Be committed to working positively in partnership with Lockyer Valley Regional Council to achieve positive outcomes
