Growth Plan to be decided on at Special Council Meeting

THE Greater Shepparton City Council has deferred consideration of the adoption of the Shepparton and Mooroopna 2050: Regional City Growth Plan to a Special Council Meeting scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, March 30.

The Growth Plan was on the agenda of last week’s March Council Meeting with a recommendation for Council to adopt the plan, however Cr Rob Priestly moved to have the matter deferred to next week and received unanimous support.

“Obviously, there’s a lot of community interest and anticipation in resolving the adoption of a 2050 growth plan,” Cr Priestly said at last week’s meeting.

“It has been a very, very significant undertaking for new councillors to come to terms with four years of work arriving at this point.

“And that we just need a little bit more time. There are councillors in the room that need a little bit more time to work through this.”

The Victorian Planning Authority, in collaboration with Council, prepared the Growth Plan to set a vision to guide sustainable growth and development for the twin cities up to 2050.
