Geelong Saleyards Precinct Plan

The Geelong Saleyards Precinct Plan will set the direction for the future of the site now that the sale of sheep and cattle has ceased.

The Saleyards, on Weddell Road in North Geelong, have been in operation since 1869. Over more recent years, throughput had declined. In August 2017 the City of Greater Geelong closed the Geelong Saleyards for sheep and cattle sales, due to significant Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) issues at the facility.

It was also resolved to prepare a Precinct Plan for the site to consider the future land use.

Project bulletins and updates - Consultation now open

We are now in Phase 2 of the consultation for the Saleyards Draft Precinct Plan.

The City has prepared a draft Precinct Plan outlining a framework plan, design concepts and design principles for the Saleyards site. These reflect and build on the ideas shared in last year’s community vision workshop.

We would love to hear what you think of the draft Precinct Plan as part of the phase 2 community consultation. This feedback will be used to further refine the Precinct Plan before it is finalised and presented to Council for adoption in mid-late 2020.

We’ve prepared a Precinct Plan for the Saleyards. It sets out the vision, future uses and development principles that will guide this exciting new residential precinct.The Geelong Saleyards Precinct Plan - Project Bulletin 1 - March 2018 is the first in a series of updates that will be prepared during the project to keep the community informed about progress. It provides additional background about the project and details the key considerations for the Geelong Saleyards Precinct Plan.
