Wellington Growth Management Strategy
Project Status: Open
Project Status: Completed

SGS Economics and Planning Pty Ltd have been appointed by Council to prepare the Wellington Growth Management Strategy (‘Strategy’).

What is the purpose of the Strategy?

The purpose of the Strategy is to develop a long-term framework to direct and manage future urban growth, with a focus on the role and growth potential of the six (6) main urban centres (Sale/Wurruk/Longford, Maffra, Stratford, Heyfield, Rosedale and Yarram).

  • The Strategy does not rezone land, but instead identifies preferred strategic directions and township roles to meet long-term growth needs.
  • The Strategy also identifies priority economic development opportunities across the Shire to support future job creation and investment.
  • The Strategy ‘as a whole’ will provide Council, relevant agencies, investors and the community with clear strategic direction to support the longer term urban and economic growth of the Shire.

Current status

A draft Strategy (and supporting background report) have been prepared. A summary information sheet is also available.

The community is invited to provide written feedback on the draft Strategy, which will be used to inform preparation of a final Strategy.

Written submissions should be lodged by Friday 21 June 2024 and be clearly marked – Draft Growth Management Strategy’.

Submissions can be emailed to or posted to PO Box 506 Sale, VIC 3850.
