Welcome

Overview

The draft Avalon Corridor Strategy (ACS) is a strategic land use plan prepared by Hansen Partnership for the City of Greater Geelong and Wyndham City Council, in collaboration with the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

The draft ACS has been developed in response to Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 policy directions as well as similar policy objectives within the G21 Regional Growth Plan (2013) and Greater Geelong Settlement Strategy (2020).

It seeks to maintain a ‘green break’ between Greater Geelong (Lara) and Metropolitan Melbourne (Werribee) to protect significant cultural, landscape and biodiversity values and safeguard important infrastructure and assets, such as Avalon Airport and the Western Treatment Plant.

It also establishes a high-level Framework Plan to guide land use decision making in the Avalon Corridor, such as the location and extent of future development.

Once finalised, the Framework Plan will be incorporated into both the Greater Geelong and Wyndham Planning Schemes via a planning scheme amendment.


Community Consultation & Engagement

In November 2016 we listened to community views and aspirations for the Avalon Corridor and used these to guide the development of the draft ACS and Framework Plan. We are now coming back to the community to seek further input before finalising the ACS.

In this next stage of consultation, we would appreciate your feedback on the draft ACS and Framework Plan, including the key principles, future land uses and proposed areas for further work (such as possible planning instruments).

Please choose from any of the below engagement activities to have your say on the draft ACS:

  • Written submission - use online form below or email or post us your feedback (see 'Written Submission')
  • Online workshop - register for your preferred time (see 'Consultation Sessions')
  • One-on-one interview (via phone or online) - please contact us to arrange a time (see 'Contact Us')

Submissions close Tuesday 21 September.
