What's On


Indigo Shire Council adopted the Chiltern Placemaking and Structure Plan — Heritage Town, Bold Future in June 2016 to position the town for economic and population growth and create a connected and resilient community.

The Chiltern Placemaking Plan sets a growth target of 2% per annum to reverse a district population decline, and ensure the town’s long-term viability by capitalising on the town’s proximity to major regional centres including Wodonga and Wangaratta, large employment hubs at the Logic Centre and Barnawartha Livestock Centre, and major road and rail corridors.

The project will bring a $12 million boost to the local economy with up to 42 jobs, including 28 ongoing jobs for Chiltern and surrounding region.

In Part B – Structure Plan,  the report uses a land use planning process to guide the approach to managing growth.  The traditional Structure Plan model has been fundamentally and transparently altered to suit a small town.  Chiltern’s Structure plan has been designed to not only manage growth, but also to provide a catalyst for future development.
