Revised Development Plan for Elliminyt open for community consultation

Published on 24 November 2022


Council is inviting landowners and the general public to view a revised Development Plan for land in the Irrewillipe Road / Aireys Street precinct in Elliminyt.

The revisions come following a landowner workshop held in May, which examined some of the reasons for the lack of development interest in the area, which is ideally located in the broader Colac/Elliminyt context and has the potential to help meet housing needs in the shire.

“Council thanks everyone who took the time to provide feedback at the workshop and we welcome more consultation in order to get the best possible outcome for the community,” said Mayor Potter. “We encourage the wider community, particularly those living in adjacent residential areas, to participate in this next consultation.”

Landowner feedback identified the extent of road construction required by the Development Plan as a critical barrier in facilitating further development.

An alternative plan, based on this feedback, significantly reduces the road extent while at the same time being more reflective of individual landowner aspirations, including:

  • significantly reduced length of constructed road, with an east-west road from Hart Street to
  • the centre of the precinct
  • integrated stormwater drainage generally directed toward the north and west
  • a mix of lot sizes to suit landowner aspirations
