East Bairnsdale and Lucknow Structure Plan
Council, in collaboration with the State Government, has commenced work on a Structure Plan for the East Bairnsdale and Lucknow precinct. This work will outline how the precinct should develop over time, including the existing industrial areas along the Princes Highway and McMillan Streets and the farming/vacant land north of the Princes Highway.
Council is currently seeking feedback on a Draft Concept Plan for East Bairnsdale and Lucknow. The Draft Concept Plan explores different business and use mixes and the infrastructure that would be required to support such uses. The Structure Plan will be used by Council and others to guide future development in the area.
Your feedback will assist in the development of a more detailed and refined Plan that reflects the views and needs of the community and provides a clear plan for the future development of the area.
Feedback is encouraged and should be lodged at the Corporate Centre Bairnsdale or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4.00 pm on Friday 12 April 2013.
