Northern and Western Geelong Growth Areas

This engagement is complete

Date: Wednesday, 9 May 2018 to Friday, 22 June 2018


We're progressing plans to create two major new growth areas that will collectively become home to 110,000 new residents beyond 2050.

The Northern and Western Geelong Growth Areas project is being prepared to address Geelong’s long-term population growth, as part of a clever and creative future.

The Northern Geelong Growth Area, located in the Lovely Banks area, will eventually accommodate 48,000 people. The Western Geelong Growth Area, located in the Batesford area, will have a population of 62,000.

A draft ‘future urban structure plan’ will be created for each growth area to guide proposed land use and development, including transport, open space and activity centre networks.

Your input will help inform the delivery of the overall framework plan for the growth areas.

Submissions close Friday 22 June 2018.
