We are currently seeking submissions on a Draft Rural Land Activities Review and input to a Landscape Assessment Study.

Draft Rural Land and Activities Review

We've prepared the Draft Rural Land and Activities Review to provide planning policy, directions, and recommendations for rural land. The review also provides high-level strategic direction and guidance for future strategic planning for the small townships of Pyalong, Tallarook, Tooborac and Waterford Park.

We're seeking your input on the unique opportunities and challenges facing our rural townships and ways our planning policies can support ongoing sustainable use in the future. These recommendations will inform future changes to the Mitchell Planning Scheme.

Landscape Assessment Study

We're also calling on the community to complete the Landscape Assessment Study. We want to know where the best views are, what landscape is significant to our community and any other suggestions you may have.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

You can find out more by reviewing the documents online, attending a drop in session or speaking to our Strategic Planning team.

Please note, many of the files are very large files as they contain detailed maps. This will need a reliable internet connection and will use data to download. If you would like to view a hard copy, we encourage you to attend a drop in session or contact us on 5734 6200 to arrange access for a hard copy to be sent.

MORE INFORMATION

If you require more information or have anything further you wish to discuss, please call Council's Strategic Planning team on 5734 6200.

Submissions close 5pm, Friday 11 June.

  • About the review

    The Draft Rural Land and Activities Review seeks to provide a vision for the future of rural land within the Shire, which is primarily within the Farming Zone. The draft review also provides high-level strategic direction and guidance for future strategic planning for the small townships of Pyalong, Tallarook, Tooborac and Waterford Park.

    The Draft Rural Land and Activities Review has been informed by expert advice and community consultation.

    An Issues and Opportunities Paper was exhibited to the community and State authorities from 30 July 2019 to 9 September 2019. A Community Liaison Group was endorsed by Council at its Ordinary Council Meeting held 21 October 2019 to provide ongoing community input.

    Feedback received during the consultation period of the draft Rural Land Activities Review will help inform and guide the content of the final Rural Land and Activities Review that will form the basis of a future Planning Scheme Amendment.
