Northern Geelong Growth Area

The Northern Geelong growth area, in Lovely Banks, has a study area of 2,127 hectares and is anticipated to deliver up to 18,000 new dwellings for a population of approximately 50,000 residents.

A brochure has been developed outlining the draft ‘future urban structure plan’ for the Northern Geelong Growth Area and provides high-level direction on future land uses and major networks of transport, open space and activity centres.

Technical studies

Throughout 2016 and 2017, the City has worked in collaboration with landowner consortium groups in each growth area underpinned by Memorandums of Understanding to deliver technical studies that inform the project.

The City hosted 'Open House #2' community session in October 2017 to share the outcomes of the draft and final technical reports that will inform the framework planning process with landowners and the community.
