About the Yarragon Township Plan

The Yarragon Township Plan will provide a long-term strategic vision for Yarragon. The Plan will consider land uses, township character, connectivity, natural environment and the public realm. It will also include an Urban Design Framework to guide development in the town centre, acknowledging the established ‘village’ feel. 

The Plan will provide a clear planning framework that addresses opportunities and constraints and will make recommendations for guidance on decision making about investments, infrastructure improvements and development proposals.  

Baw Baw Shire Council has appointed SMEC Consultants to prepare the Yarragon Township Plan and Urban Design Framework

Once completed, the Plan will also be used as a basis for formal changes to the Baw Baw Planning Scheme, through revised planning controls.

Throughout the process, there will be opportunities for the community to provide feedback to inform the Plan.

Opportunities for feedback

SMEC Consultants and Baw Baw Shire Council will be holding a stall at the Yarragon Community Craft and Produce Market on November 27, 2021.

Pop over to the market any time between 9am to 1pm to share your thoughts about the future of Yarragon, what you would like to see changed and what should stay the same.

If you can’t make it on the day, you will be able to share your thoughts by completing a short survey which will be available online from November 17 to 15 December 2021.
