Urban Growth Management Strategy

UGMS heading

The Urban Growth Management Strategy (UGMS) is one of Council’s principal guiding documents. It provides a set of targeted strategies and actions to achieve Council’s vision and guide the sustainable growth of Victor Harbor to the year 2030.

The UGMS is aligned with South Australia’s Strategic Plan targets, State Strategic Priorities and 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide.

The UGMS is underpinned by Council’s objectives:

  • A strong economy and supportive business environment.
  • The sustainable provision of physical infrastructure and community services.
  • Environment and lifestyle protected against the pressures of projected population growth.

The UGMS is reviewed on a periodic basis to ensure strategies and actions remain on target to achieving the vision and objectives of Council. The review also reflects changes to policy, population, development trends, infrastructure, environment and community services.

Copies of the UGMS are available for viewing or purchase at the Council office or Library, or you can download from the links below.
