About the project
The draft Avalon Corridor Strategy (ACS) is a strategic land use plan prepared by Hansen Partnership for the City of Greater Geelong and Wyndham City Council, in collaboration with the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).
The draft ACS has been developed in response to Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 policy directions as well as similar policy objectives within the G21 Regional Growth Plan (2013) and Greater Geelong Settlement Strategy (2020).
It seeks to maintain a ‘green break’ between Greater Geelong (Lara) and Metropolitan Melbourne (Werribee) to protect significant cultural, landscape and biodiversity values and safeguard important infrastructure and assets, such as Avalon Airport and the Western Treatment Plant.
It also establishes a high-level Framework Plan to guide land use decision making in the Avalon Corridor, such as the location and extent of future development.
Once finalised, the Framework Plan will be incorporated into both the Greater Geelong and Wyndham Planning Schemes via a planning scheme amendment.
