Shaping Our Region - G21 Regional Growth Plan
The G21 region is growing.
There will be more people visiting, working and living in our region over the next 40 years.
We have valuable assets on which to build a robust and resilient economy, and we can accommodate growth without destroying the region’s values or identity. The challenge is to evolve as a self-sustaining region that uses existing infrastructure and land more efficiently.The G21 region is growing
We encourage you to continue your interest in the project by The G21 Regional Growth Plan (the Growth Plan) is one of eight plans being developed across the state to manage growth. The draft Growth Plan has been developed in partnership with the five G21–Geelong Region Alliance councils (Colac Otway, Golden Plains, Surf Coast, Queenscliffe and Greater Geelong), state government departments, Corangamite CMA, and the Committee for Geelong.
The purpose of the draft G21 Regional Growth Plan is to manage growth and land use pressures to 2050. It pulls together the strategic land use and growth planning already done across the region and sets out where future residential and employment growth will occur and the critical infrastructure required to support it.
The draft G21 Regional Growth Plan, which is based on extensive community and stakeholder input was available for comment from 3 April to 18 May 2012. We are now preparing the Final Growth Plan which will be informed by the feedback received during Stage 3.
It is anticipated that the Final Growth Plan will be handed over to each of the five G21 – Geelong Region Alliance Councils and the Minster for Planning in July 2012.
