  • A statement in relation to the above (draft stage).  PCA Settlement Strategy Amendments Submission

  • Guidelines for the PCA becoming involved in formal submissions on planning issues (draft stage).
  • Submission to the City of Greater Geelong re the proposed amendment to the City of Greater Geelong Planning Strategy (C395).
