The Integrated Infrastructure Delivery Plan for Armstrong Creek.
The following infrastructure delivery plans are now available:
Integrated Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IIDP)
The Integrated Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IIDP) has been developed in conjunction with the Department of Planning and Community Development and government agencies. The Integrated Infrastructure Delivery Plan is a critical element in achieving affordable and appropriate housing, supportive community features and services and adequate and diverse transport, movement and infrastructure items in the growth area.
The Integrated Infrastructure Delivery Plan is the result of combining two documents which have recently been completed by the Armstrong Creek Project Team, the Social Infrastructure Delivery Plan and the Civil Infrastructure Delivery Plan. The opportunity for future innovation has been built into the plan.

Civil Interagency Infrastructure Delivery Plan (CIIDP)
The Armstrong Creek Urban Growth Area is approximately 2,500 hectares of unserviced land. This means that before any development can occur critical trunk infrastructure such as sewer, water, roads, drainage, electricity, gas and telecommunications need to be carefully planned to ensure efficient and effective servicing throughout the life of the growth area.
In late 2007 Council formed the Interagency Infrastructure Working Group (IIWG) to commence strategic planning for the delivery of essential services and civil infrastructure for the growth area. The group was made up of:
- Barwon Water (sewer and water)
- City of Greater Geelong (local road and drainage)
- Powercor (electricity)
- SP AusNet (gas)
- Telstra (telecommunications
- VicRoads (arterial roads)
The group developed a first principles infrastructure servicing strategy that best meet the constraints of the sites, each organisations economic / funding requirements and the growth areas land use planning objectives the report was finalised in early 2009.

Social Infrastructure Delivery Plan (SIIDP)
Council, in conjunction with the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) and Government agencies, has developed a comprehensive Social Interagency Infrastructure Delivery Plan (SIIDP) in order to ensure that planning for the growth area is properly considered and is able to deliver on Council's vision for the growth area as a liveable and sustainable community. Council, the State Government and agencies have recognised that they have a shared responsibility to plan for future community needs, along with recognising that community needs extend beyond that of hard infrastructure.
This SIIDP will ensure that the growth area will be provided with the timely delivery of infrastructure and services, in line with the direction of Government which has, since March 2000, sought to emphasise the importance of the economic, environmental and social spheres.
