Prospecting Geelong Region Integrated Development

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 12, 2013

By Ram Kumar Shrestha

Ram Kumar ShresthaGeelong officially became a city on 8 December 1910, and displaced Ballarat as Victoria’s second largest city by 1936. It is the twelfth largest city in present Australia. The Geelong region attracted over six million tourists during 2001. By 2017 it is claimed that Avalon airport, which is just 15 km (9.3 mi) north-east of the city of Geelong, will carry up to 3.4 million passengers each year. Geelong is surrounded by Warrnambool, Winner of 4 Victorian Tourism Awards in the past 5 years, popular beach-front communities on the Bellarine Peninsula, and famous Great Ocean Road. Growing reputation of Deakin University, existing CSIRO and other research centers and extensive research and consultation prediction would develop Geelong as educational and research center too. The population is predicted to reach five hundred thousand within forty years – that is about two and half times the current figure. Perth and Darwin are the other cities in Australia with such high population increase rate. Geelong Council plans to further develop Geelong as an international waterfront city that boasts first class facilities and caters for a wide range of events and activities. A $1 BILLION plan to give Geelong a convention centre and a world-class waterfront residential precinct has been unveiled by a London-based urban developer with the proposal of a massive rejuvenation of the area between Eastern Beach and Limeburners Point with the capacity to generate an economic benefit of $86 million a year. These details strongly suggest Geelong Council and Victorian government to work out Long Range Strategic Planning (LRSP) for Geelong region development not only to keep everything under control despite overpopulation but also to make it one of the most livable cities in the future.

Strong visions of sustainability and independence, the ‘Sea Dragon’

Strong visions of sustainability and independence, the ‘Sea Dragon’

Sustaining Geelong region’s natural beauty is a big challenge because of the population increase and modernization. Although it’s a difficult task, with proper and long vision plan this could be possible. Individual plans for different areas and objectives could be good in short term, however; long term problems in the region could arise. It could be better to prioritize integrated development of the region through single Grand Geelong Region Master Plan (GGRMP). The region’s formal alliance, G21 Geelong Region Alliance developed ‘The Geelong Region Plan – a sustainable growth strategy’ which was launched by Premier Brumby in 2007. It is the approved strategic plan for the Geelong region and in November 2011, there were 13 Priority Projects. It is therefore, better to work through the already existing alliance and previously developed plans could be part of the GGRMP. To beautify Geelong region in the future, obviously; further designs like “The Sea Dragon” could be necessary. Read the rest of this entry »
