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 October to 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.

In August to September 2021 we came back to the community to seek 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).

Engagement activities offered during this second consultation period included:

  • Written submission
  • Online workshop
  • One-on-one interview (via phone or online)

Submissions closed on Tuesday 21 September. A copy of the consultation report is available in the Document Library.
