Pakington Street (Geelong West) and Gordon Avenue UDF - Release of Draft

This engagement is open

Date: Wednesday, 11 March 2020 to Monday, 4 May 2020

The City has produced a draft Urban Design Framework (UDF) to help shape the development and renewal of Geelong's best-known suburban shopping strip, the iconic 'Pako'.

The draft Pakington Street (Geelong West) and Gordon Avenue UDF focuses on short-term street improvements and long-term renewal projects for the beloved area. Guiding future investment and design decisions in three distinct precincts - the Heritage Core (retail and activity centre), Pakington North and Gordon Avenue.

The City invites members of the community to make a submission online through this page, via email to or by writing to us at PO Box 104, Geelong, Vic 3220.


Engagement Update

The City's response to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) is being guided by the latest advice from Commonwealth and State authorities.

In line with this guidance, face to face consultations for this project have been cancelled until further notice and at this time we are seeking community input through online and written submissions.

We have extended the duration of our online engagement, which we will continue to extended as necessary as we work to develop additional opportunities for community to provide input.

A decision on the UDF will not be made until local businesses and the wider community have been given opportunities to discuss and provide feedback on the proposal.

Please continue to check this page for engagement updates.



The City is supporting Monash University to explore the key factors which influence people’s attitudes to infill housing proposals. The research is titled "Place Attachment and Heuristics: What influences resident’s attitudes to urban intensification proposals?"

Monash University invite you to complete a short online survey once you have considered what the Draft Urban Design Framework proposes. No information will be collected that can identify you. The survey takes about six minutes to complete.

Please note the survey is not a submission to the Draft UDF.
