Changes to Residential Zones

As you may be aware, significant changes to Residential zones will soon be implemented across the state.

The new residential zones are:

– The Residential growth zone, which is intended to facilitate new housing growth and diversity

– The General residential zone, which is intended to preserve urban character while facilitating moderate housing growth, and

– The Neighbourhood Residential zone, which is intended to restrict housing growth in areas identified for urban preservation

The City of Greater Geelong has prepared an interactive map, enabling residents to identify which new zones will be applied to their property.
