Census data has revealed a promising demographic shift in the Loddon Shire. 
 
The region is reversing an early-2000s trend of population decline, recording more than 200 new residents in the recent census. 
 
Mayor of the shire Dan Straub said it puts the region in a great position moving forward. 
 
"The population growth is some very exciting news and very welcome news for the Loddon Shire," he said. 
 
Population growth means greater investment in the region and brings "great community benefit", he added.
