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 POA 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 POA.

Three information drop in sessions were held in June/July 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 will be prepared in response to written submissions made during the public exhibition process of the planning scheme amendment to introduce the PAO into the planning scheme.


  • 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

  • Assessment of land value
  • Impact of PAO on property values
  • Timing between Amendment and Acquisition
  • Reinstatement of landscaping and fencing
  • Options for buildings within 6m setback from the service road

Service Road design

  • Main objective of the service road
  • Proposed 12m easement for service road, and potential use of centre median
  • Option for service road to be narrower. 
  • Use of the existing road reserve for the service road
  • Cost of relocating services vs cost of service road
  • Clarification of service road access points
  • Entry/exit point locations for commercial properties
  • Impact of reduced parking for commercial operations and existing permit requirements
  • location of service road exits and access to other lanes and central median breaks ( U-Turn facility)

  • Implications for properties with two crossovers and traffic signal access
  • Parking along service road and management of on street parking
  • Potential for on-street parking blocking access for emergency vehicles
