Amendment C212 was undertaken in late 2018 to implement the recommendations of the Greater Shepparton Townships Framework Plan Review 2018 (the Review), which updates the framework plans of nine townships that were originally included in the Greater Shepparton Housing Strategy 2011.
The Greater Shepparton Housing Strategy 2011 (the GSHS) was prepared by David Lock Associates Pty Ltd on behalf of Council to guide the future long term identification and provision of residential land within Greater Shepparton. The GSHS establishes a development framework in the Shepparton and Mooroopna urban areas, as well as the smaller townships within the municipality.
The Amendment seeks to implement the recommendations of the Review by revising the residential Framework Plans in the Municipal Strategic Statement of the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme.
