Inverleigh Structure Plan

Share this:


Community members are invited to provide feedback on the draft Structure Plan framework for Inverleigh, via the conversation posts and online feedback in June 2018.


The Inverleigh Structure Plan provides a strategic framework to establish the basis for future land use planning decisions for the town. The Structure Plan indicates a preferred layout of residential, commercial, community and other land uses based on a 15 year outlook. 

The Inverleigh Structure Plan will:

  • Address the limited availability of suitably zoned and unencumbered residential land in Inverleigh
  • Link and integrate key findings of the Inverleigh Flood Study
  • Examine suitable lot sizes for the Low Density Residential Zone
  • Tie in relevant findings of the Domestic Wastewater Management Plan (DWMP)

Engagement Update

Community workshop (October 2017):

Council held a community workshop on 26th October to provide results of the community survey, stakeholder engagement and the latest 2016 census findings. 

View workshop presentation

There was a strong turnout with robust and healthy discussion amongst the community on key structure planning issues including:

  • Vision for the town
  • Land Use (residential, commercial, open space, industry and community)
  • Physical attributes
  • Movement – Connections – Accessibility

The workshop findings demonstrate that while there is a mix of views on particular issues, there is also widespread support for the following:

  • Retaining a village character, with its historic and natural environments which are cornerstones of the town’s charm and appeal.
  • Ongoing dependency on higher order services within Bannockburn and Geelong so as to preserve Inverleigh’s village scale and character.
  • Support for the continuation of the boutique scale of commercial development and re-use of existing buildings in the main street.  

Previous engagement:

Prior to the October workshop, Council received more than 120 responses to the community survey distributed in the first half of 2017, representing around 10% of the Inverleigh community.

A broad range of community members also provided feedback at the Inverleigh Listening Posts in early March 2017. The Strategic Planning Team has enjoyed meeting many residents, talking about the Structure Plan project and seeking feedback on key issues.  More than 50 residents and community group representatives also attended workshops during March 2017.
