Strategic Planning

Strategic planning ensures the City of Greater Geelong:


•Plans for future growth
•Maintains its environmental, heritage and cultural values
•Identifies issues facing townships including community aspirations and needs
•Articulates the preferred future directions for townships
•Identifies appropriate planning controls to protect and enhance townships

 

Our strategic plans and visions are implemented through the Greater Geelong Planning Scheme.

We prepare and review planning policies, structure plans, strategies, master plans, urban growth plans, frameworks and design guidelines.

Community participation and feedback

The community has an opportunity to participate and comment on our strategic planning work.

This is done informally at the draft stage and formally at the planning scheme amendment stage, when the policy or document is introduced into the Greater Geelong Planning Scheme.
