The program is targeted to support owners to use existing upper levels of buildings for residential and commercial activities, as well as encouraging residential development in the CBD.
If successful, the program will deliver more people in the city more of the time.
Four types of initiatives are being explored:
Financial incentives: including fee waivers and development incentives
Technical support: planning assistance, building advice and market information
Street level support: street upgrades and parking provision
City living promotions: information and advice
Phase 1 of the project looks at what initiatives from Postcode 3000 are transferable to Geelong.
Phase 2 will occur from June onwards and include identifying issues that are more complex and specific to Geelong. Consultation will be undertaken as part of the Phase 2 process.
We welcome feedback about the project, please submit comments via the feedback section below.
