The Urban Growth Strategy will specifically consider residential development in urban areas. It will not consider rural (including rural living), industrial, and commercial land or development, other than to the extent they affect residential development.
New Town Framework Plans will be developed where appropriate as part of the Urban Growth Strategy. Like the current Framework Plans in the Mount Alexander Planning Scheme, these will identify the township (or urban growth) boundaries for each town, and requiring rezoning to allow for residential development, constraints to residential development, key features, and further work that may need doing before development occurs.
As part of the Urban Growth Strategy, the township boundaries for each town will be reviewed to ensure they are in the most appropriate locations.
