Have your say on the future of Romsey

Submissions closed on 01 April 2022, 05:00 PM

Council recently invited community feedback to help shape the long term future of Romsey and develop a new Romsey Structure Plan.

Romsey is a developing township and is planned to grow to a large district town, with a population of 6,000-10,000 people by 2036. The structure plan is required to manage sustainable development of the township.

The new structure plan will guide the development of the town to the year 2050 and will set a long term settlement boundary in line with the Macedon Ranges Statement of Planning Policy. 

On 8 March 2022, we held an online webinar with a Q and A session with over 70 people in attendance.

Many questions were raised with Council and its consultants during the session. We have created a frequently asked questions document to answer your questions from this session.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback during the recent consultation period.

The Romsey Emerging Options Paper Consultation Report will respond to submissions and make recommendations in order to prepare the draft Structure Plan.

The consultation report will be presented to Council at a future Scheduled Council Meeting. All submitters and subscribers will be informed when this occurs.

Census data, released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on 28 June 2022 is also expected to help inform planning for any future growth of Romsey.

Development of the draft Romsey Structure Plan will continue with further public consultation in future stages. We are committed to achieving positive long term outcomes for Romsey.
