We are reviewing the Strathbogie Shire Planning Scheme. Your input will help guide our future planning.

We review the Strathbogie Shire Planning Scheme every four years to ensure it meets the needs of the local area, and state and local planning policy. This is a requirement of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

This review will help us to ensure that our Planning Scheme addresses the key land use and development issues Strathbogie Shire is facing now and into the future.

Feedback closes at 5pm on Friday, August 12.


  • Neighbourhood character

    Neighbourhood character is the 'look and feel' of an area. This can include the pattern of housing and development, the scale and character of buildings, landscaping, architectural and roof styles.

  • Sustainable development

    Strathbogie Shire Council is committed to improving environmental performance and resilience in new development and in response to a changing climate. Environmentally Sustainable Development (ESD) principles aim to improve the health and comfort of buildings for occupants while reducing negative impacts on the environment.

  • Connectivity

    Transport, whether it be walking, cycling, driving or public transport, is important for the community to access employment, activity centres and public spaces. The Strathbogie Planning Scheme guides the assessment of the parking and traffic movements for new developments.

  • Vegetation and our environment

    We are committed to maintaining and conserving our natural environment for future generations. Our community vision points to our region of ‘natural beauty’ and Council has been strong on the need for climate action, declaring a Climate Emergency in 2021.

Please do not construct high density residential estates in Euroa. A lot of the residents live here to avoid such estates.

People who work are unable to get to these meetings. Is there any way that we can get information about the town that we live in ?

Talk to a Planner

To ensure our community has every opportunity to learn about planning in Strathbogie Shire we’ve launched the ‘Talk to a Planner’ initiative.

What this means is our planners are setting up shop in townships throughout the Shire. They’ll be there to:

  • provide advice and information on the local planning scheme
  • provide advice and information on state planning policy
  • seek feedback about community planning priorities
  • Understand how we can improve the Local Planning Policy to better meet community needs.
If you are keen to seek advice on a specific planning matter, or speak to a planner 1:1 to provide your feedback, you must book in a time by going to https://www.trybooking.com/CALEZ

Council is also available to book in times outside of the dates below – so please don’t hesitate to phone us on 1800 065 993 if you would like to do this.
