Thank you for providing your feedback as we prepare our new Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS).

An MPS provides an overview of important local planning issues.

Situated at the front of the planning scheme, it provides the foundation for the planning scheme’s local polices, based on the Shire’s location and regional context, history, assets, strengths, key attributes and influences. Together with the Planning Policy Framework, the MPS forms the strategic basis and ‘foundation’ of the Nillumbik Planning Scheme.

Eleven key themes and associated objectives have been identified through the Our People Our Place Our Future community consultation project. They reflect the priority concerns, issues and values of the Nillumbik community.

These eleven themes will form the base of the new MPS.

Next Steps:

  • Council will be presented with feedback.
  • Submitters will be invited to a future PCC to speak to their submissions, and subject to that, a draft of the updated MPS will be brought back to the community for another round of consultation to ensure feedback has been effectively captured.
  • The MPS will be finalised and Council will seek authorisation from the Minister for Planning to insert the updated MPS into the Nillumbik Planning Scheme.
