Amendment C236– Manor Estate And Carter Avenue Precinct Werribee - Heritage Overlay

Council has prepared Amendment C236 to the Wyndham Planning Scheme.

Why is the Amendment required?

The Amendment is required to ensure sites of local heritage significance, identified in heritage studies, are protected under the Heritage Overlay.

The Amendment will assist Council in achieving its strategic objectives in recognising and protecting heritage sites and encouraging appropriate development that respects places with identified heritage values.

The Amendment will result in a net community benefit by improving community perception regarding heritage planning controls and assist in the conservation of places by encouraging development that respects heritage significance.

The Amendment proposes to

  • Create a new listing HO136 for the ‘Carter Avenue Precinct’, by including 22 sites of local heritage significance in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay. The amendment also activates the external paint control and notice for fences and outbuildings control in the Schedule.
  • Makes changes to the ‘Manor (remnants)’ (HO102) listing in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay, by including 8 additional properties. The amendment also activates tree controls in the Schedule.
  • Amends the Schedule to Clause 74 (Incorporated Documents) to include new statements of significance for both precincts, and development guidelines for Carter Avenue.

The land affected by the amendment is:

  • 22-41 Carter Avenue, WERRIBEE VIC 3030
  • 16 and 18 Wattamolla Avenue WERRIBEE VIC 3030                 
  • 23 and 25 Quarbing Street WERRIBEE VIC 3030
  • 178 Werribee Street North WERRIBEE VIC 3030
  • 1 Guyra Court WERRIBEE VIC 3030
  • CA 2004 Mambourin Parish Heaths Road WERRIBEE VIC 3030
  • CA 2063 Deutgam Parish Heaths Road WERRIBEE VIC 3030

Manor Estate, Werribee

The Manor Estate is an area adjacent to the Werribee River, which contains the remnants of the historic property ‘The Manor’. This land is currently covered by a Heritage Overlay (HO102) ‘The Manor (remnants).’

The site is identified as being of local historical significance to the City of Wyndham

The Heritage Overlay schedule and mapping will be amended to remove items which are no longer extant and include identified trees, including activating the tree controls in the Schedule.

Manor Estate, Werribee

Carter Avenue, Werribee

The Carter Avenue precinct is of significance for historical, rarity, aesthetic and associative reasons to the City of Wyndham

The precinct is an extension of the ‘Carter Housing Estate (HO21)’, which is already protected by a Heritage Overlay.

Carter Avenue, Werribee
Carter Avenue, Werribee

The Amendment seeks the application of the Heritage Overlay to the Contributory dwellings, brickgarages, and low scale brick fencing, of 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 40, 23, 25, 35, 37, 39 and 41 Carter Avenue.

The dwellings and integrated garages and facades at numbers 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, and 38 on Carter Avenue, Werribee are of local significance as they also form part of the estate on land bought by the Carters for Carter homes development. However, these houses were constructed later, using face brick and Marseille pattern roof tile in a mid to late 1950s and 1960s styling. These dwellings are defined as being Non-Contributory to the significance of the Precinct.

Dwellings at 27, 29, 31, 33 and 38 Carter Avenue are to be included in the proposed Heritage Overlay as Non Contributory dwellings, so that any development will be in keeping with the Contributory development.

Heritage Victoria / Heritage Council – “Heritage Overlay Guidelines” (2007)

Heritage Victoria has guidelines for development if land is affected by a Heritage Overlay, including that of heritage precincts. Places which are in precincts can be graded either Significant, Contributory or Non-Contributory.

Significant heritage places are individually important places of state, municipal or local cultural heritage significance.

Contributory places contribute to the significance of the heritage precinct that they are located in. They are not considered to be individually important places of significance, however, when combined with other significant and/or contributory heritage places, they play an integral role in demonstrating the cultural heritage significance of a precinct. If the heritage place is Significant or if it Contributes to the significance of an area, Council should refuse to grant a permit for demolition.

Non-Contributory places are places within a heritage precinct that have no identifiable cultural heritage significance. They are included within a Heritage Overlay because any development of the place may impact on the cultural heritage significance of the precinct or adjacent 'significant' or 'contributory' heritage places. Developers are often able to remove, alter or develop Non-Contributory elements or sites, provided that development occurs in a manner appropriate to the significance, character and appearance of the heritage area.

In Carter Avenue, the dwellings and integrated garages and facades at numbers 22, 24, 26, 28,30, 32, 34, 36, 40, 35, 39 and 41 on Carter Avenue, Werribee, are defined as being Contributory to the significance of the Precinct. These houses are constructed of similar materials, using face brick and Marseille pattern roof tile in a mid-late 1940s styling, are single storey and have the same alignment and layout.

Background

During consultation of the ‘Wyndham Housing and Neighbourhood Character Strategy (2015)’, the Carter Avenue and Manor Estate precincts were identified by the community as having special heritage values for further investigation. In response, Council engaged Heritage Alliance heritage consultancy to prepare preliminary investigation reports and recommend appropriate planning controls. The studies identified additional structures and dwellings which should be included in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay. Both Manor Estate and Carter Avenue were found to be of local heritage significance and warrant the application of the Heritage Overlay.

Council officers held meetings with residents in late November 2018, to advise of the outcome of the preliminary investigations, and discuss the Amendment process

At Council's Ordinary Council Meeting held on 5 March 2019, Council resolved to request authorisation from the Minister for Planning to prepare and exhibit Amendment C236 (permanent controls) and prepare Amendment C239 (interim controls) Both Amendments seek to include sites of local heritage significance within the Manor Estate and in Carter Avenue, in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay. 

The Minister for Planning has now approved Amendment C239 under Section 20(4) of the Planning and Environment Act and has granted Council Authorisation to proceed with the Amendment C236.

Submissions

Amendment C228wynd - Residential Rezoning - 315 Boardwalk Boulevard, Point Cook

This Amendment was prepared by the Wyndham City Council which is the planning authority for this amendment. The Amendment has been made at the request of Akron Point Cook Pty Ltd.

Figure 1: The Land Affected by the Amendment

vic1

 

Why was the Amendment required?

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

The Amendment rezoned the land for residential use, with a drainage reserve in the west of the site and an area of open space centrally located. A Development Plan Overlay has been 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.

Timeline

Following the public exhibition in late 2019 and a planning panel process earlier this year, Council adopted the amendment in the Council meeting on 11 August 2020.

The adopted amendment was submitted to the Minister for Planning, who subsequently approved it. The amendment was made effective on 12 November 2020 when it was gazetted on the Victoria Government Gazette.

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.

Current Status

The exhibition period ended on 11 November 2019, with no submission received. At the Ordinary Council Meeting on 4 Febuary 2020,  Council adopted the Amendment as exhibited (except for a minor administrative update in the explanatory report in relation to the street number of one of the affected parcels on Leakes Road, resulting from a recent subdivision) under Section 29 (1) of the Planning and Environment Act and submit the adopted amendment to the Minister under Section 31(1) of the Planning and Environment Act.

Council is currently awaiting approval of the Amendment by the Minister for Planning.

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. 

C241 - Plan 1: Woods Road and Dohertys Road Intersection Upgrade

Plan 1: Woods Road and Dohertys Road Intersection Upgrade

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.

C241 - Plan 2: Leakes Road Duplication between Derrimut Road and Tarneit Road

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.

Amendment C246wynd – Public Acquisition Overlay - 75 Westmeadow Lane, Truganina

Land affected by the amendment: The Amendment applies to land located at 75 Westmeadows Lane, Truganina.

What the amendment does: The Amendment proposes to apply a Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO3) to the land.

Why is the Amendment required?

The Amendment is required to identify the land as required for an active open space reserve. This responds to a documented current and future shortfall of active open space in the north of the municipality, as identified in the Wyndham Open Space Strategy (WOSS), a strategy adopted by Council with a purpose “intended to address open space needs of the existing Wyndham community and plan for the future growth by anticipating the needs of the growing population”.

The WOSS identifies a current shortfall in district level active open space across the north of the municipality, in the suburbs of Tarneit, Hoppers Crossing and Truganina. The WOSS states that across the three suburbs, there is a collective deficit of 40.2 hectares of district level active open space.

Currently there are very limited opportunities to provide for additional active open space to meet the identified shortfall in the existing developed areas of Hoppers Crossing and Truganina.

The land affected by the amendment is non-developed land of a size that can facilitate development of active open space that would service the Truganina/Hoppers Crossing area.

The WOSS recommends as a key action the need to secure and develop new active open spaces in the established suburbs of Wyndham to cater to the sporting demands of the current and growing population. Recommended actions for the provision of active open space include:

“Identify sites to improve the coverage of district level active open spaces to serve the following OSPDs as priority: Point Cook, Tarneit and Hoppers Crossing.” (Action no. 10)

The proposal responds to the need identified in the WOSS Acquisition Plan (Appendix 4, Page 172) to secure district level active open space given the shortfalls of 21.98ha in Hoppers Crossing, 3.46ha in Tarneit and 14.78ha in Truganina, Williams Landing, Laverton North when compared to open space coverage standards identified in the WOSS. The land identified in this Amendment is located close to the boundary of the Hoppers Crossing, Tarneit and Truganina Open Space Planning Districts.
