Avalon Corridor Strategy - Project Page

The City of Greater Geelong and Wyndham City Council have been working together to develop the Avalon Corridor Strategy (ACS) in collaboration with the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

Project updates including community bulletins are posted on this page.

You can register to receive community bulletins by emailing [email protected].


The ACS responds to a Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 direction to maintain a ‘green break’ between Greater Geelong (Lara) and Metropolitan Melbourne (Werribee).

It seeks to protect significant cultural, landscape and biodiversity values and safeguard important infrastructure and assets, such as Avalon Airport and the Western Treatment Plant.

It also establishes a high-level Framework Plan to guide land use decision making in the Avalon Corridor, such as the location and extent of future development.

Community consultation

In November 2016 we listened to community views and aspirations for the Avalon Corridor and used these to guide the development of the draft ACS and Framework Plan.

The 2016 Community Consultation Report consolidates what we heard and can be downloaded below.

We are now coming back to the community to seek further input before finalising the ACS.

The second round of community consultation will be undertaken via Have Your Say from 11 August until 21 September 2021.

Next steps

Following the second consultation period, we will update the ACS with community feedback and finalise the Framework Plan.

Once finalised, the Framework Plan will be incorporated into both the Greater Geelong and Wyndham Planning Schemes via a planning scheme amendment. We anticipate that this will occur in early 2022.

There will be final opportunity for community input during exhibition of the planning scheme amendment.
