Moorabool Shire Council has prepared a Draft Small Towns and Settlement Strategy (STS) as part of the Moorabool 2041 project. It was developed through detailed assessments of each settlement and extensive community consultation.

The draft STS provides an over-arching vision to guide the future, and to maintain and enhance the sustainability, of the Shire’s small towns and settlements until 2041. It complements the strategic work already, or being, undertaken for the towns of Bacchus Marsh, Ballan and Gordon.

Preparation

As part of the preparation of the draft STS, consideration has given to a number of factors, including:

  • Settlement history and background;
  • Strategic influences including;
  • Planning policy and provisions;
  • Infrastructure and servicing;
  • Social influences;
  • Economic influences;
  • Environmental influences; and
  • Location attributes and settlement hierarchy.
