Armstrong Creek Suburb Naming & Boundary Realignment Information Session September 2011
The Armstrong Creek Urban Growth Area is Victoria’s largest contiguous growth area. Around 2,500 hectares will be developed for urban purposes. The projected residential population is 55,000– 65,000. 22,000 homes will be built at a range of housing densities. 22,000 jobs will be provided in the growth area. Fast Facts
Why are we proposing to make these changes? The proposed changes are made in accordance with the Department of Sustainability and Environment’s Guidelines for Geographic Names 2010. The guidelines and direction from Officers within the Department indicate a threshold population for suburbs between 8,000 to 25,000. Limiting the size of a suburb’s population also assists emergency services response. Council has a duty of care to ensure that all properties are able to be easily identified to emergency services. Australia Post will also be incorporating a new Post Code of 3217 over this area in partnership with Council’s proposed changes.

Mount Duneed & Connewarre to Armstrong Creek (proposed) The western boundary will be Surf Coast Highway. The northern boundary will be aligned on Boundary Road then north up Charlemont Road and then east along the current Marshall / Connewarre boundary to the Barwon River.
