The Rural City of Wangaratta aims to ensure there is a diverse range of housing options across the municipality. To help with this Council has appointed Urban Enterprise to prepare a Low Density and Rural Residential Strategy for the municipality.
The purpose of the Strategy is to identify a suitable level of land supply for dwellings within the Low Density and Rural Living Zones. The Strategy’s planning horizon is for the next 30 years to ensure current and future residents are provided with a diverse range of housing options.
Key recommendations of the Strategy include the proposed rezoning of land in South Wangaratta, Milawa, Oxley and Moyhu and, in the long term at Springhurst.
Due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, Council is practicing social distancing and therefore will not be holding any community drop in sessions on this Strategy. We are still committed to consulting on this Strategy and are happy to discuss the Strategy with you via phone and email.
As a first point of contact, we request that you send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to have a strategic planner contact, you via phone – we would also appreciate it if you can email this request and we will contact you directly. Alternatively please call Customer Service on 03 5722 0888 and they will pass the request through.
