THE 10-year-old Crib Point township plan has been updated and is open for public input until 14 August.
The plan sets out the strategic vision and direction of the town’s development and aims to protect its character of tree-lined streets and mix of old and new houses.
Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Sam Hearn said the plan ensured Crib Point would “continue to have the look, feel and function of a country town on the coast, closely connected with its natural environment”.
The original plan from 2009-11 set a long-term vision and guide for the development of Crib Point. It was prepared in consultation with the town’s residents and other stakeholders, following community concerns that out-of-character multi-unit developments were emerging.
“An update is necessary as the plan is now 10 years old. The original vision remains current, and this update focuses on reviewing the plan against existing state and local policies, conditions and relevant strategies,” Cr Kate Roper said.
“Community feedback will help us finalise the document.”
