Portarlington Structure Plan

The Portarlington Structure Plan is a strategic framework for the future planning and development of the township over a period of 15 years. The current Structure Plan is a result of a review undertaken to the 2008 Portarlington Structure Plan. The study, which is now largely out of date, is due to be replaced by the emerging Open Space Strategy when this is adopted by Council.
