Plan Melbourne

Plan Melbourne is the Victorian Government's metropolitan planning strategy that will guide the city's growth to 2050. It is a strategy to house, employ and connect more people to jobs and services closer to where they live. It will also build the confidence, investment and employment vital for Victoria's long-term future.

Already known as one of the world's most liveable cities, Melbourne will become a global city of opportunity and choice. More information on Plan Melbourne can be accessed from the Plan Melbourne Website

Urban Growth Boundary Review

The Council at its Ordinary meeting held on Monday 22 August 2011 resolved to make the following submissions to the current State Government review of the Urban Growth Boundary changes introduced by the former State Government on 6 August 2010 under Planning Scheme Amendment VC 68.

The review announced by the Baillieu Government on 16 May 2011 will only examine submissions that were previously made to the 2009 Urban Growth Boundary Review and that fit the strict criteria of what has been termed “logical boundary inclusions”.

Details are available from the web sites of the Department of Planning and Community Development and the Metropolitan Planning Authority.

West Growth Corridor Plan

The Growth Corridor Plans are high level integrated land use and transport plans that provide a strategy for the development of Melbourne’s growth corridors over the coming decades.

These plans will guide the delivery of key housing, employment and transport infrastructure in Melbourne’s new suburbs and provide a clear strategy for the development of the growth corridors over the next 30 to 40 years.

The Growth Corridor Plans focus on four metropolitan growth corridors over the coming decades and will provide for housing, jobs, transport, town centres, open space and key infrastructure across our city’s newest metropolitan suburbs.
The plans also identify broad transport networks, industrial and employment zones, residential areas and recreation precincts.

The West Growth Corridor Plan can be downloaded from the Metropolitan Planning Authority website.

Development Contributions Plans

Development contributions play an important role in delivering essential infrastructure to new and growing communities.

The Development Contributions Plan (DCP) is a way by which Council will charge new development in the growth area for contributions towards planned infrastructure projects. It is a certain and transparent means by which Council can recover some of the costs towards the on-going provision of adequate development and community infrastructure. Money received through the DCP will go towards a varied range of projects such as:

Development and upgrades to many of the main roads and pathways new areas need

  • Local parks
  • Community centres
  • Libraries
  • Sporting facilitates (grounds and some pavilions)
  • Community health centres

The DCP outlines why and how Council will charge new development for a financial contribution towards planned infrastructure projects from which that development will benefit. The DCP is incorporated in the Planning Scheme via a standard planning scheme amendment process.

Precinct Structure Plans

Precinct Structure Plans (PSPs) are master plans for whole communities which usually cater for between 10,000 to 30,000 people. Precinct structure planning is fundamental to making Victoria’s growth areas great places to live, both today and for future generations. PSPs lay out roads, shopping centres, schools, parks, housing, employment the connections to transport and generally resolve the complex issues of biodiversity, cultural heritage, infrastructure provision and council charges.

The development of greenfield sites, along with urban consolidation, is an important part of the State Government’s strategy to address population growth and the housing and employment demands that flow from this.

PSPs are the “blueprint” for development and investment that will occur over many years. They provide an up to date approach to address current global issues such as adapting to climate change, reducing carbon emissions, rising living costs and pressures of increasing travel distances as our cities grow. PSPs provide a balance between meeting complex policy requirements and providing affordable development.

Our goal is to create diverse, compact and well connected communities that are affordable and rich in local jobs, transport access, services and culture. We must also protect our valuable natural and historic features and use land more efficiently.

PSPs can be prepared and funded by council, landowners and developers, the Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA) (with funding provided by the Victorian Government) or other agencies directed to do so by the Minister for Planning. In all cases the process will require the active involvement of land owners, developers, service and infrastructure providers and Councils.

With the incorporation of new areas in the Urban Growth Boundary, the MPA set out preliminary boundaries and interim names for the PSP program. It should be noted that these may be subject to change from time to time depending on changing circumstances.

Any enquiries on the program can be made in the first instance to the MPA.

Structure Plans & Development Contributions

Panel Hearings

Point Cook Concept Plan

The development of Point Cook is informed by three principal strategic planning documents:

Point Cook Concept Plan (April 1996)

The Point Cook Concept Plan identifies the potential of the Point Cook area for urban development as a component of the Werribee Growth Area Plan (1990).  This Concept Plan presents various scenarios exploring the areas capacity for development, future land use potential and infrastructure requirements to support development.  The favoured scenario assumes  a population of approximately 54,000 people occupying approximately 18,000 dwellings serviced by a regional activity centre with some local employment opportunities.  

Point Cook Concept Plan Report (2000)

This report is an update of the Point Cook Concept Plan (1996).  Provides a conceptual land use map to identify indicative locations for the establishment of the infrastructure and services necessary to serve future urban development.  The plan identifies significant potential for conventional to medium density housing.  Low density or rural residential development was proposed for the south of the Plan area based on demand identified in the Wyndham Housing Strategy 1996. 

Point Cook Concept Plan Addendum Point Cook Homestead Road Precinct (October 2007)

The Point Cook Plan Addendum Point Cook Homestead Road Precinct (October 2007) is a review to allow a more compact urban form to be developed in the area previously reserved for low density (rural residential) the south eastern corner of Point Cook, comprising approximately 277 hectares.  This review was in response to the key directions of Melbourne 2030 which called for the creation of a more compact city.

Wyndham North Growth Front

The development of Wyndham North is informed by several strategic planning documents:

Wyndham North Concept Plan (April 1996) (Adopted 1996)

The Wyndham North Concept Plan’s purpose is to identify the infrastructure and servicing requirements for the area in the short to medium term. The plan identifies the capacity for future land use and infrastructure. By identifying capacity the plan provides a platform from which to undertake more detailed land use planning infrastructure.

Cell A Outline Development Plan (March 2001) (Adopted 2001)

The Development Plan provides the base framework to enable more detailed subdivision design.  The site area is triangular, bound by Sayers Road, Skeleton Creek and the Federation Trail. The Development Plan ensures the coordination and integration of development elements, as well as a mechanism to provide infrastructure in an equitable manner.

The development Plan identifies an indicative transport network to collector road level, the location of facilities such as community centres, schools, open spaces and any activity centres.

Cell B Development Contributions Plan (October 1997) (Incorporated)

The “Cell B” Developments Contributions Plan provides a basis for the collection of development contributions for local infrastructure. The plan area covers the land bound by Sayers Road, Derrimut Road and Leakes Road, west of the Skeleton Creek.

The Plan identifies those areas of local infrastructure required due to new development. The infrastructure includes:

  • Major Roads
  • Local Community Facilities
  • District Open Space
  • Local Open Space

Cell C Development Plan (Stage 1), (8th October, 2001) (Adopted 2001)

The “Cell C” Development Plan in the Truganina area, bounded by Palmers Road, Sayers Road, the Skeleton Creek, Government Road and Leakes Road. Stage 1 provides a framework for more detailed planning and subdivision design to occur. The eastern half of the cell C plan has been superceded by the Truganina South Precinct Structure Plan, see below.

Westmeadows Lane and Marquands Road Development Contributions Plan (December 2007), (Incorporated)

The Westmeadows Lane and Marquands RoadDevelopments Contributions Plan provides a basis for the collection of development contributions for local infrastructure which will be required to support development in the area. The plan is for the area bound by Leakes Road, Marquands Road, Sayers Road and Skeleton Creek.

Tarneit West Outline Development Plan

The Tarneit West Outline Development Plan (ODP, May 2008) covers an area of around 118 hectares and includes all land bounded by Davis Creek, Hogans and Tarneit Roads and the southern boundary of Claremont Park. 

The purpose of the plan is to provide a framework for the coordinated development of the area and ensure that adequate services are provided for the future Tarneit West community. The plan will ensure that physical and social infrastructure is provided and funded in a timely and equitable manner.

The Tarneit West ODP provides guidance for the future development of the area, including indicative locations for schools, public open space, a neighbourhood activity centre and local road network.  The ODP also provides details on development contributions required for arterial roads and major pathway networks, community and other infrastructure, drainage and a 7.5% public open space contribution.

This area has the capacity to create a community of around 4,000 people based on a lot yield of around 1,300 lots.  The plan identifies the following:

  • Primary School;
  • Neighbourhood Activity Centre, up to 5,000m retail floorspace;
  • District Sporting Reserve and local neighbourhood park;
  • Overland drainage channel and wetlands;
  • Road and major pathway network;
  • Davis Creek interface; and
  • Development Contributions

A separate plan has been prepared for development contributions for Tarneit West.  The Tarneit West Development Contributions Plan (May 2008) has two parts.  Part A deals with general development contribution levies required for all land in the ODP area.  Part B deals with a specific levy for Wootten Road, an existing rural road that is required to be upgraded to a collector road.  This levy will apply to all properties that have abuttal to the existing Wootten road reservation.
