The City of Greater Geelong is seeking community feedback to inform the draft Pakington Street (Geelong West) and Gordon Avenue UDF.

The draft UDF focuses on short-term street improvements and long-term renewal projects. Guiding future investment, development and design decisions in three distinct precincts - the Heritage Core (retail and activity centre), Pakington North and Gordon Avenue.

We want to hear from local residents, business owners and regular visitors / shoppers about three key overarching themes in the draft UDF:

  • Addressing population growth and increasing housing mix - deals with proposed infill development and additional building heights.
  • Increasing the mix of uses and activities - deals with proposed changes to land use and encouraging mixed use developments.
  • Improving the public realm for everyone - deals with proposed street upgrades and renewal projects.

The City invites all members of the community to make an online submission through this page, via email to or by writing to us at PO Box 104, Geelong, VIC 3220.

Over the past weeks, we have received 75 submissions (online, written and email) and have had conversations with over 50 members of the community.

In order to build on this and ensure the wider community have an opportunity to comment on the draft UDF, we are extending the consultation period until Monday 31st of August, 2020.
