Darebin is growing and changing. Let's shape our future together.
Darebin's population is growing and changing. It is anticipated Darebin will be home to an additional 46,465 residents, 24,093 households and 26,775 dwellings by 2036 (Darebin Housing Demand and Supply Analysis, SGS Economics and Planning 2020). We are developing a new Housing Strategy and Neighbourhood Character Study to shape how housing will be planned for, delivered and experienced as Darebin continues to grow and change over the next 20 years.
The Housing Conversation community engagement process concluded on 8 August 2022. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. The feedback from the activities has been analysed and is included in an Engagement Summary Report in the Document Library.
These results are currently helping to inform the development of the draft Housing Strategy and Neighbourhood Character Study. Once this has been developed there will be another opportunity for the community to have a say on it before it becomes implemented into the Darebin Planning Scheme.Follow this page by clicking the 'follow' button at the top of the page for updates.
