Mornington Peninsula Shire Council
Plan2Place Consulting prepared the township structure plan for Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula. The township comprises residential areas, small areas of commercial services and community facilities with a large visitor and tourist focus particularly in summer. One of the key challenges was responding to the limited change and growth pressures and ensuring that the township retained its distinct charm and setting in the green wedge.
The structure plan establishes a clear vision to guide future land use and development within Balnarring. The preparation of a Background Report provided robust evidence and findings with the foundation for objectives, strategies and actions of the final structure plan.
The structure plan provides a concise, strategic document that enables a clear
policy basis for statutory implementation, advocacy, capital works and public realm improvements. The plan was adopted by Council in August 2019.
