Seymour 3660 Project

* Thank you. Submissions have now closed *

The draft Seymour Structure Plan has been released for community input.

The plan has been prepared with the involvement of the local community, businesses, investors, government agencies and technical experts.

Seymour has the potential to accommodate significant change and to develop into a major employment centre over the next 30 years.

As Seymour's position as a major regional centre strengthens, we need a plan to attract jobs, residential growth and quality services.

The Seymour Structure Plan helps identify what types of changes are required over the next 10-20 years to support this. The draft plan sets directions and opportunities to support this change in Seymour in a way that retains Seymour's character, heritage and natural beauty.

The plan will guide future planning and development decisions and provide a framework to facilitate future investment.

The plan will also help Council to advocate for funding and partnerships to develop and deliver priority projects in the short and long term.

The Structure Plan includes:

  • A clear vision for the area.
  • Plans to guide future land uses.
  • Locations of key community facilities (schools, health centres, kindergartens, etc).
  • Plans to grow and improve local town centres.
  • Mobility plans which cover walking, cycling, public transport, traffic, car parking, and freight transport routes.
  • Guidance about the design of new buildings in key locations.
  • Plans to enhance open space, town entrances, public gathering spaces, parks and gardens.
  • Ways to attract and develop stronger economic growth, business and tourism development.
  • Protection and enhancement of key landscape and heritage assets.
