The Bannockburn Growth Plan (Growth Plan) (PDF) will guide the sustainable growth of Bannockburn to the year 2050. The Bannockburn Growth Plan will identify where and when future housing may be developed. It will also identify what infrastructure is needed to support the growing community, such as roads and community facilities, and land for employment and retail.

Draft amendment to the Golden Plains Planning Scheme

The VPA has prepared a draft amendment to the Golden Plains Planning Scheme to include the Growth Plan as a Background Document and make changes to the Planning Policy Framework. The draft Amendment will enable future decisions about the town’s growth to be guided by the Growth Plan.
