Background

Amendment C243 to the Wyndham Planning Scheme seeks to apply a Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO) to the front 12 metres of properties on the south side of Sayers Road (between Morris Road and Tarneit Road) and east side of Tarneit Roads (between Sayers Road and Hogans Road), Hoppers Crossing.

Wyndham Planning Scheme Amendment C243 Map

The PAO will facilitate the development of a service road, which has been identified in a Traffic Impact Assessment as the appropriate road management strategy to safely manage traffic entering onto these arterial roads.

Service Road concept plans have been prepared to define the extent of the service road and land required under the PAO.

Three information drop in sessions were held in May and June to enable Council officers to provide information on the planning, acquisition and compensation and engineering issues, and for landowners to ask questions and raise issues.

Below is a list of the nature of issues raised by landowners. Responses to issues raised in written submissions made during the public exhibition process of the planning scheme amendment to introduce the PAO into the planning scheme will be prepared as part of council’s consideration of submissions.

Planning

  • Timing of PAO
  • Reduced lot sizes in the Low Density Residential Zone (LDRZ) and further subdivision
  • Housing and Neighbourhood Character Study and impact on ability to develop
  • Zoning of properties to maintain character of the area
  • Definition of "Infrastructure Constrained”
  • Potential for new sewer line

Property - Acquisition and Compensation

What the amendment does

The Amendment:

  • rezones the land from Farming Zone (FZ) to General Residential Zone (GRZ);
  • Insert a new Schedule 3 to the Clause 43.04 Development Plan Overlay (DPO3) and apply it to the land;
  • Amend the Schedule to Clause 72.08 Background Documents to include the following background documents referenced in the DPO3:
    • 315 Boardwalk Boulevard, Point Cook: Bushfire Management Statement (Brett Lane & Associates, June 2019)
    • Site Contamination Assessment: 315 Boardwalk Boulevard, Point Cook, Victoria (Prensa Pty Ltd, September 2019)

Why is the Amendment required?

The Amendment seeks to integrate the zoning of the land with the existing surrounding land already in General Residential Zone. The Amendment will allow for the surrounding residential areas to be integrated with the existing urban network.

The Amendment proposes to rezone the land for residential use, with a drainage reserve in the west of the site and an area of open space centrally located. It is proposed that a development plan overlay will be applied to the site to ensure 1) cohesive and orderly development of the site, and 2) integration with the existing street network and character of the area.  

The rezoning of the site is supported by Planning Policy Framework by providing land for residential development that will be able to contain a variety of dwelling types, designs and lot sizes to meet the needs of residents within the development. The development plan to be approved by Council will ensure that the development will be consistent with the character of the surrounding area.

The amendment will have a net community benefit through implementing a cohesive road network, providing affordable housing opportunities through a mixture of lot sizes and providing open space for the existing and future residents.

Amendment C241 – Public Acquisition Overlay – roads and intersections upgrades on Dohertys Road, Leakes Road and Boundary Road

The Wyndham City Council has prepared Amendment C241 to the Wyndham Planning Scheme.

The land affected by the amendment is as follows;

  • 775 Dohertys Road, Truganina
  • 794 Leakes Road, Tarneit
  • 784 Leakes Road, Tarneit
  • 774 Leakes Road, Tarneit
  • 804 Leakes Road, Tarneit
  • 1110 Dohertys Road, Tarneit
  • 963 Boundary Road, Tarneit
  • 917 Boundary Road, Tarneit

The amendment proposes to apply a Public Acquisition Overlay to a portion of eight (8) individual land parcels to facilitate the acquisition of land for three key intersection upgrades and road duplication projects in accordance with the Wyndham North Development Contributions Plan.

Why is the amendment required?

The Wyndham City Council’s Advocacy Strategy 2019 identifies that many sections of Wyndham’s roads have reached capacity, and some are carrying far more traffic than they were designed for. This is causing traffic jams, delayed bus services and traffic safety issues.  Wyndham’s commuters and freight industries urgently need upgrades to arterial roads, intersections and freeway interchanges. To this end, Council has been upgrading local roads to meet Wyndham’s current and future needs.

Incorporated into the Wyndham Planning Scheme (Clause 72.04) as part of the Planning Scheme Amendment C177, the Wyndham North Development Contributions Plan (DCP) identified the need to acquire portions of land from eight (8) individual land parcels (seven in Tarneit and one in Truganina) to facilitate three high priority road projects. Each project has been identified in Council’s Priority Infrastructure Plan (PIP) and Council’s Capital Works Program. Each project is critical to improve road capacity in Tarneit and Truganina.

It is therefore appropriate, in the interests of timely infrastructure delivery, to apply a Public Acquisition Overlay to ensure the land is identified in the Planning Scheme as being required for future road and intersection works.

The high priority road projects that require land acquisition and are the subject of this Amendment are:

  1. Woods Road and Doherty’s Road Intersection Upgrade – affecting one parcel:
  • 775 Dohertys Road, Truganina;
  1. Leakes Road Duplication between Derrimut Road and Tarneit Road – affecting four (4) parcels:
  • 794 Leakes Road, Tarneit;
  • 784 Leakes Road, Tarneit;
  • 774 Leakes Road, Tarneit;
  • 804 Leakes Road, Tarneit; and
  1. Boundary Road and Derrimut Road Intersection Upgrade – affecting three (3) parcels:
  • 1110 Dohertys Road, Tarneit;
  • 963 Boundary Road, Tarneit;
  • 917 Boundary Road, Tarneit;

The location of these three projects are identified on the plan below (Figure 1): Proposed PAO locations.

Amendment Documents

Background

1) Woods Road and Dohertys Road Intersection Upgrade

This intersection is currently a rural type cross intersection and has been identified as a dangerous intersection during peak times. The intersection forms part of the Truganina Precinct Structure Plan (PSP), incorporated into the Wyndham Planning Scheme through Amendment C175. As part of the Western Roads Upgrade project, detours will put additional traffic through this intersection further impacting the safety of the intersection.

Traffic signals are required here to improve the safety of the intersection for road users. The construction of the signalised intersection and the associated land acquisition were identified in the Truganina PSP and will be funded by the Wyndham North DCP. The project is identified as a Year 5-10 project in the Council’s PIP, but the land acquisition is required sooner for an interim intersection.

2) Leakes Road Duplication between Derrimut Road and Tarneit Road

The duplication of Leakes Road will alleviate traffic congestion for motorists travelling through this section of the road. As a major arterial road, Leakes Road provides access for residents travelling from the west of Wyndham through towards the city via the Princes Freeway. Funded by the Wyndham North DCP, the duplication will link into the Western Roads Upgrade project where Leakes Road is programmed for duplication from Derrimut Road to Fitzgerald Road. The project has been identified as a Priority Year 1-4 project in the DCP PIP.

Plan 2: Leakes Road Duplication between Derrimut Road and Tarneit Road

3) Boundary Road and Derrimut Road Intersection Upgrade

This intersection is currently a rural type cross intersection. As part of the Western Roads Upgrade project, detours will direct additional traffic through this intersection, further impacting on its safety. In addition, Council is upgrading Boundary Road east of this intersection which is likely to encourage more drivers to use this intersection.

The project to upgrade this intersection to a traffic controlled signalised intersection has been identified in the Tarneit North PSP and is to be funded by the Wyndham North DCP. The project has been identified as a Priority Year 1-4 project in the DCP PIP.

Council has recently corresponded with the Department of Transport on the need to expedite an upgrade to this intersection, and the PAO proposed as part of this amendment is an important catalyst for further discussions and actions from State Government in this regard.
