Population, Housing and Residential Settlement Strategy

Central Goldfields Shire Council is undertaking a Population, Housing and Residential Settlement Strategy.  The purpose of the strategy is to provide direction for residential growth and form under a range of growth scenarios, in order to meet the anticipated needs of the Shire’s population from 2020-2035.

Council has engaged Spatial Economics to undertake research and data analysis to provide an evidence base for decisions about how and where future residential growth should be directed.  A short paper covering key issues to consider will be available for reading, along with background documents for those who want to study the detail.

How can I get involved?

Interested community members are invited to participate in the formation of the strategy by attending a drop-in session, reading background information and completing a survey.
