The Morwell-Traralgon Corridor comprises land which fronts the Princes Highway from the Morwell side of the Latrobe Regional Hospital, east to the Traralgon Golf Course, and includes land extending to Alexanders Road and Old Melbourne Road.
Latrobe City Mayor, Councillor Brendan Jenkins, said Council was conducting a timely review of the corridor following substantial changes to infrastructure, traffic use, and adjacent land, to see whether land use strategies identified some time ago are still appropriate.
"In the corridor recognised by the La Trobe Planning Scheme, there has been additional land use such as for the hospital. The drive in theatre has gone and there has been a reduction in the size of the caravan park. While plantation land use and the subdivision of rural residential land hasn’t changed, a major change has occurred with changes to traffic movements related to the Morwell bypass," Cr Jenkins explained.
"To ensure we make the right planning decisions for the future, we will undertake a review of planning strategies for the corridor. This will be done through an extensive period of consultation with existing residents, business interests and other stakeholders which will eventually result in a clear statement of options identified for future development," Cr Jenkins said.
"We will need to examine the current situation and the events which have created this situation. This will include the past policy position, existing land use pattern, land use change, existing infrastructure, planning policy and management issues. It will look at such issues as whether there are other ways of managing traffic and disseminating pressure," Cr Jenkins said.
A discussion paper is being prepared which will be considered by Council at the July Council Meeting. We then anticipate a period of consultation, with workshops being held, together with interviews with service providers and stakeholders, prior to any changes to the strategy being proposed, Cr Jenkins concluded.
