Meeting the housing needs of the community

The population of Mount Alexander Shire is growing and a strategic approach towards housing is needed.

We must ensure that any new housing is in the right location, and will meet the diverse needs of our current and future populations. We must also consider heritage values, neighbourhood character and environmental features (including the natural environment and biodiversity, and key risks such as bushfire).

All of this and more is being considered as we develop a housing strategy for Maldon and Newstead.

We have prepared an 'issues and opportunities paper' for you to review.

The paper covers what we know about the changing housing needs in Maldon and Newstead and looks at potential areas for new urban housing and development within the planning context.

There are a variety of ways to get involved and have your say.
