The Paynesville Growth Area Structure Plan is being developed to look at the future growth of Paynesville.
As a growing town, Paynesville needs a plan to ensure the unique identity of the town is retained, while improving services and facilities for an increasing population. Over the last 20 years, Paynesville has expanded to accommodate more families. Future growth needs to be supported with upgraded roads, safe pedestrian connections, quality public spaces and a range of property types (including affordable housing) for the community.
The Paynesville Growth Area Structure Plan will set a clear vision for the future of the town’s new development areas and guide for growth that directs development to the right places, improves residential amenity and provides the necessary community facilities and benefits. Extensive community consultation has been carried out and community members will be encouraged to comment further as the plan develops.
