RESIDENTAL growth corridors that could lift the local population by 6000 are expected to be rezoned and ready for development in 22 months’ time.

The draft North West and South Wangaratta Structure Plans set out a blueprint to rezone never before developed farming land into residential lots.

The rezoning will open the door for Wangaratta to develop in the north west to Reith Road and in the south towards Clarkes Lane.

The north west area has scope for up to 1400 residential lots that would be developed over four stages, and the south side of Wangaratta has three stages of proposed rezoning.

Stage one of the north west is the Williams Road area, stage two is along Wangandary Road, stage three is on the corner of Wangandary and Reith roads, and stage four is the area to the south of Cruse Street near the racecourse.

Three types of consultation sessions with service providers, the community, and landholders were held last week – part of a public feedback period that ends on August 21.
