Planning for our Shire's growth
Plan Melbourne and the Central Highlands Regional Growth Plan identify Moorabool Shire as a growth area, as our population is set to increase by more than 65% in the next 20 years to 65,693. The Shire needs strategic planning projects to guide its development as its population increases.
Council's population forecasts are provided by a company called .id (informed decisions) which combine their expertise on regional, national, and global drivers of change with information from Council on strategic growth areas and development. The forecasts can be accessed here.
