Neighbourhood Character Study Kilmore

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

About the Character Study

Kilmore is a large peri-urban town that is experiencing significant residential growth.

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 Kilmore, 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.

How to get involved

There are a number of ways you can get involved in this initial round of consultation.

  • Attend one of the scheduled pop ups
  • Take a look at the examples in the photos of the various elements of the neighbourhood character on this page and then take the survey online or drop a pin on the map
