Consultation Closed - Drouin Township Plan

Please note - this community consultation opportunity closed on Monday 8 June 2020. 

The Drouin Township Plan 2020-2036 is being developed to provide an updated strategic approach to projects and initiatives for Drouin over the coming years, reflecting the changing and growing needs and aspirations of the town and community.  

The purpose of the Township Plan is to identify practical and actionable strategies to be able to accommodate population growth, while not losing the much-loved character and amenity of Drouin. Council is now seeking community feedback on the draft Drouin Township Plan(PDF, 92MB), its proposed strategic directions and recommendations. 

This consultation opportunity was open until Monday 8 June 2020.


The Drouin Township Plan 2020-2036 is an update to the 2010 Drouin Town Centre Strategy and aims to address current issues, challenges and trends.

Following the Drouin Precinct Structure Plan, prepared in 2014 by the Victorian Planning Authority (formally MPA) Drouin has experienced rapid transformation and population growth creating pressure on the town, its infrastructure, character and identity.

To address this and other issues and opportunities facing Drouin, the development of the Drouin Township Plan is a strategic objective of the Council Plan 2017-2021. 

What’s involved

The strategies and recommendations proposed in the draft Drouin Township Plan(PDF, 92MB) follow 4 pathways- activation, capital works, advocacy and incentives, and further studies.  These recommendations will inform planning for future Council-led improvements and provide incentives for development of private land.    

The Drouin Township Plan would also lead to a formal Planning Scheme Amendment to implement the Plan into the Baw Baw Planning Scheme.  This process would require approval from Council and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and would involve a public exhibition period.
