Framework plan - why do we need to plan for Geelong to grow?

The Victorian Government requires the City to maintain at least a 15-year supply of residential land growth.

Geelong is growing at a faster rate than the rest of Victoria. We can expect an extra 150,000 residents by 2036. This creates demand for an extra 73,000-plus dwellings.

The Greater Geelong Settlement Strategy provides a strategic response to our increasing growth pressures and ensures that we can meet the region’s substantial housing demands in a sustainable matter, through an appropriate balance of population growth within our existing suburbs and new greenfield.
