Contributions to this engagement have closed for evaluation and review.

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

The Settlement Strategy will provide a framework to ensure council can meet the housing needs of the municipality to 2036.

It consolidates and builds on the housing and settlement planning work done to date at the local, regional and state level.

Specialist consultants Spatial Economics were engaged to assist with its preparation.

The background housing, population and development data that informed the preparation of the draft can still be viewed (see related information).

The Strategy contains a background section looking at policy, land supply, housing, population and housing affordability. The strategy section consists of six themes:

- Spatial Distribution of Growth and Land Supply
- Managing Future Growth
- Bellarine Peninsula
- Introducing a Permanent Settlement Boundary
- Urban Consolidation
- Monitoring and Review

A summary paper has also been prepared outlining the key elements of the draft Settlement Strategy.
