April 2022 update

Community engagement for Pakington North Precinct is scheduled to start in mid-June 2022 and will run for four weeks. The engagement aims to clarify the intent of proposed building controls and help residents and stakeholders better understand the process that led to the proposed built form controls and potential development outcomes for this area.

The engagement comprises:

• A series of explanatory videos on the role of a UDF, the process for developing a UDF, the key drivers for the UDF in Geelong West, and how the key controls were developed.

• A 3D online model of the precinct that will enable the community to digitally navigate through the future precinct on foot.

• An online webinar to address some key community concerns. Questions to be addressed in the webinar will be submitted in advance.

• A series of neighbourhood meetings, to be held in-person on street, to address key specific concerns.

If you haven’t already, please follow the page to get the latest updates on this engagement. The dates for the release of the videos, the webinar and the neighbourhood discussions will be posted in due course. All residents within the study area will also receive a letter outlining the approach and dates.
