Amendment C205 to the Hume Planning Scheme
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA), in consultation with the City of Hume and State Government agencies, is preparing a precinct structure plan (PSP) to facilitate the future development of the Lindum Vale precinct.
The Lindum Vale Precinct includes approximately 144 hectares of land within the City of Hume and approximately 28 kilometres north of Melbourne’s Central Business District. The Draft Future Urban Structure Concept illustrates the vision for the development of approximately 1,500 dwellings.
July 2019 Project update
The Lindum Vale Precinct Structure Plan and Infrastructure Contributions Plan was approved by the Minister for Planning and gazetted in July 2019 under Amendment C205 and Amendment C236 to the Hume Planning Scheme.
This approval includes a native vegetation precinct plan to protect and manage the removal or conservation of important areas of vegetation or habitat. The 144-hectare precinct will accommodate 1,700 dwellings and link the residential precincts of Merrifield West and Craigieburn West.
Lindum Vale will have access to a network of schools, community centres, sports reserves and town centres.
The precinct will protect Mt Ridley’s significant landscape and biodiversity assets through an extensive open space network that will become a prime feature of the area and supported by off-road shared paths and bicycle paths.

Upon completion, the plan will provide:
- A residential area that will accommodate 1,500 new homes;
- A local convenience centre that will accommodate small scale shopping opportunities;
- A network of local parks running east-west and north-south that accommodate and conserve the majority of indigenous trees within the precinct. These trees, predominantly River Red Gums and Grey Box Gums, will create a strong neighbourhood character which references its rural history;
- A central local park that accommodates a wetland surrounded by indigenous trees and links to the adjoining eastern open space via walking paths;
- A conservation area in the south-eastern corner that protects endangered native grasses;
- Large lots with a landscaped buffer along the eastern boundary that will ensure the visual amenity and privacy of existing residents is protected;
- The continued protection of the historic former Parnell’s Inn (also known as the Old Mickleham Post Office) under local heritage controls and future development that responds appropriately to this site of local significance; and
- An extension of the existing road network through a new north-south connector road that will support the future Aitken Boulevard to the east, widening of Mt Ridley Road to 40 metres and a local street network that connects to Callaway Drive, Cooinda Avenue, and potentially Billabong Court.
The standard levy rate for the north-west region will be $334,300 per hectare for residential development, including town centres, and $154,600 per hectare for dedicated commercial and industrial areas.
Yes. The ICP will be implemented via a separate amendment process to follow the PSP amendment (Hume Amendment C205).
