Pyrenees Futures

Monday 22 May 2017, 4:55 PM

Pyrenees Futures is a town planning project Council is running in nine settlements during 2017. The project will produce Township Framework Plans that will guide how these settlements grow and develop.

The Township Framework Plans will identify the character and traits that make our towns distinctive, and use that as a basis to plan for a healthy, prosperous future.

We will be working progressively across the settlements of Beaufort, Snake Valley, Avoca, Waubra/Evansford, Lexton, Moonambel, Raglan, Amphitheatre and Landsborough during 2017.

Beaufort Township Framework Plan

Council is now running community engagement sessions to work with you as we develop a draft framework plan for Beaufort.  The plan is being supported by the Victorian Planning Authority.

During May, there are lots of ways you can get involved:

  • By filling in our brief survey online at

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/beaufortframework or in hard copy at the Beaufort Community Resource Centre.

  • Coming to our community workshop at 5pm on Tuesday 30 May at the Beeripmo Centre.  RSVPs essential for catering purposes before 5pm on Thursday 24 May to futures@pyrenees.vic.gov.au or to Council's Planning staff via 5349 1100.

  • Getting in touch with any other thoughts at futures@pyrenees.vic.gov.au with any thoughts or ideas. We are also happy to come and speak with community groups.

  • Post photos showing what you love about Beaufort to Instagram or Twitter using #pyreneesfutures

  • Keeping an eye on Council's Facebook page for further details on community drop in sessions.

  2. If I could design my town I would...
  3. The things that make me proud of my town are..

Email your responses to futures@pyrenees.vic.gov.au

What will these framework plans do?

The final Township Framework Plans will lead to:

  • New township planning policies that will guide decisions on land rezoning, provide guidance to development applicants and inform Council’s assessment of planning applications.
  • Urban design guidelines that will focus on improving the look and function of town centres to make them even better places for people.

If you’re interested in getting involved in your town, email futures@pyrenees.vic.gov.au or contact Council’s Town Planning staff via 5349 1100.
