Mitchell Shire Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Character Study for Broadford.

About the Character Study

Broadford is a peri-urban town and is going to see some change in its neighbourhoods in the coming years.

To ensure this new development recognises and responds to the key characteristics and attributes of the town, Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Character Study.

The study aims to identify the key valued features of residential neighbourhoods in Broadford, and develop Neighbourhood Character Statements describing the existing and preferred neighbourhood character across distinct precincts within the town.

These Neighbourhood Character statements will inform future planning policies which will be used to determine the planning applications about new development and how it responds to the key elements of the neighbourhood. A future Planning Scheme Amendment will be needed to introduce the planning policy.

Stage 1 Consultation concluded in September 2023. The Consultation Summary is now available for viewing and download.

In the second phase of community engagement, Council will make available the Draft Neighbourhood Character Study for community input.
