Planning for housing in Castlemaine, Campbells Creek and Chewton

What is a housing and neighbourhood character strategy?

Victoria is growing and all Councils have to absorb their fair share.

To make sure our neighbourhoods remain vibrant and connected while protecting our natural assets we must plan for managed growth.

The Housing and Neighbourhood Character Strategy for Castlemaine, Campbells Creek and Chewton will deliver:

  • Guidelines for the design of housing and development which respects the character of our neighbourhoods, and meets future population needs
  • Direction around where housing growth is to occur

Your input now will help shape the future of Castlemaine, Campbells Creek and Chewton housing and neighbourhoods.
