Goornong Plan seeks community involvement

The City of Greater Bendigo has commenced background work to inform and develop a plan for Goornong’s future.

The Goornong Plan will build upon the existing community strengths and qualities, and the aim is to make Goornong a more cohesive, connected, and liveable place for current and future residents. It will also build upon the opportunities arising from the new Goornong train station, which is currently under construction and expected at the end of this year.

The Plan will identify what growth opportunities exist and determine what facilities, services and infrastructure are needed to support that growth, while respecting the existing character and qualities of Goornong.

The City is working towards preparing a draft Plan by the middle of 2022. There will be several consultation opportunities for the community to have their say on the future growth and development of the town. Project bulletins will also be distributed at key milestones of the project to keep the community up to date.

Have your say

We want to hear about your knowledge and experience of life in Goornong and there will be many opportunities for you to engage in the project. The first step is to invite you to complete a survey which will provide a valuable source of information for the draft Plan. There will also be opportunities as the draft Plan progresses to participate in community workshops and receive regular updates for further comment.
