What is the Neighbourhood Character of your area?

26 April 2022

Important Council survey to guide the future of your neighbourhood

Did you move to Nillumbik for its green spaces and treed environment?

Have you seen changes that are not for the better?

Do you want to ensure that what you value most about where you live is considered when the Council decides whether to approve a new development near your home? If so, it is extremely important that you tell the Council about the character of your neighbourhood.

You can do so by:

– completing Council’s online survey at https://participate.nillumbik.vic.gov.au/neighbourhood-character-strategy


– making a written submission via the same webpage

before the survey closes at midnight on Sunday 8 May 2022.’


In what kind of Neighbourhood Character Precinct do you live?
