About the Project


Bass Coast Shire’s forecasted population growth will result in demand for between 8,000 – 10,000 new houses by 2036. We are one of Victoria’s fastest growing regional municipalities.

To ensure that we are well equipped to sustainably manage this forecasted population growth, Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Character Study, a Housing Strategy, and a Residential Canopy Cover Improvement Strategy.

We want you to tell us if the neighbourhood character descriptions we've prepared are accurate, and if the level of housing change we've identified is appropriate.

You can share your thoughts in many ways:

  • Complete a short survey (click 'Get Started' via the PolicyScape tool below)
  • Join us at an upcoming community information session
  • Get in touch with us via email or phone
  • Send a written submission via email to strategicplanningadmin@basscoast.vic.gov.au
