Rural Hume Integrated Growth Area Plan (HIGAP)

The Rural Hume Integrated Growth Area Plan (HIGAP) covers all land that falls outside the Urban Growth Boundary (excluding Melbourne Airport). It includes the areas of Oaklands Junction, Yuroke, Wildwood, Diggers Rest; the rural parts of Clarkefield; Greenvale and Sunbury, the Keilor area behind Melbourne Airport: and Bulla Township.

Council is developing a Rural HIGAP in response to community views and the need for a new long-term rural land use plan. Thank you to all who provided their input to guide planning, infrastructure provision and Council investment within the rural areas over the next 25 years. 

Your feedback will help Council gain a better understanding of how land is used, what is valued and any issues faced in rural areas. Community feedback will help inform the preparation of an Emerging Issues and Options Paper for the Rural HIGAP. An opportunity to comment on the Paper will be provided in the first half of 2018.
