Mornington Peninsula Shire is breathing new life into the Crib Point Township Plan 2009-2011. The Plan sets the strategic vision and direction for the township’s development and aims to protect Crib Point’s unique character of tree lined streets and a mix of old and new houses.
The 10-year-old Plan was recently updated and is on public exhibition until 5pm Friday 14 August.
Since June, more than 100 residents have voiced their opinion about the town’s future in writing or at the online community consultation session in July. Residents’ main concerns are maintaining low density housing and vegetation and increasing public spaces such as bike trails and dog walking areas.
The original Plan established a long-term vision and guidance for the future development of Crib Point and was prepared in consultation with the town’s residents and other stakeholders, following community concerns that out-of-character multi-unit developments were emerging within the township.
The original vision remains current, and this update focuses on reviewing the Plan against existing state and local policies, conditions and relevant strategies.
Community feedback will help Mornington Peninsula Shire finalise the document.
Following finalisation of the updated Crib Point Township Plan, a Planning Scheme Amendment may be required to implement the recommendations of the Plan.
