Shepparton & Mooroopna 2050 – Regional City Growth Plan – Have your say submission form

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) in partnership with Greater Shepparton City Council is preparing the Shepparton and Mooroopna 2050: Regional City Growth Plan to guide the sustainable development of the Shepparton-Mooroopna urban area to the year 2050.

The Growth Plan will be a high-level document that identifies the region’s strengths, addresses key challenges and sets a vision to guide growth and development to 2050. The Growth Plan will be used to coordinate, guide and inform the preparation and consideration of future, more detailed local plans and planning processes.

In February 2019, the Shepparton & Mooroopna 2050: Regional City Growth Plan Key Issues and Opportunities Report was released for public comment. Six clear themes emerged from this engagement process. The actions from the Growth Plan that address these themes are identified in the table below.

The draft Growth Plan, September 2019 document for your review is available here:
