Protecting the Hanging Rock precinct

DELWP and Macedon Ranges Shire Council are working with the community to develop a Master Plan for the Hanging Rock Precinct. The Master plan is now in the final stages. The aim of the Master Plan is to retain the precinct's international reputation as a popular local and tourist destination that has strong social, cultural and environmental values. The Master Plan will also provide a strategy for the long-term direction and investment needs of the precinct.

The objectives of the Master Plan are:

  • acknowledge and enhance the environmental, social, historical and economic values
  • engage the key stakeholders and broader community
  • identify planning framework and other strategic directions
  • explore opportunities for financial self-sufficiency
  • articulate precinct vision and values
  • provide the land use direction for activity and built form
