Draft Whittlesea Township Strategy - Tell us what you think

Following community feedback, we have prepared a draft Whittlesea Township Strategy and we want to know what you think.

About the strategy

We are preparing a strategy to guide how the Whittlesea township will change over the next 20 years including transport, housing, open space, shopping and employment.

The plan will build on the town's strengths and continue to protect its unique character.

The draft strategy addresses key issues relating to:

  • Managing future residential growth
  • Housing opportunities and built form
  • Retail, business and industry
  • Movement and transport
  • Environmental attributes and risks
  • Community services and facilities.

In particular the strategy will:

  • Provide a framework to guide development and growth within the Whittlesea township
  • Determine whether the implementation of a township boundary is appropriate to manage growth
  • Protect the preferred rural character of the township which is highly valued by the community.
