McPherson Precinct Structure Plan

Planning Scheme Amendment C221 to Casey Planning Scheme

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA), in consultation with the Casey City Council and government agencies, has prepared the McPherson Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) to guide development of a new residential community in Clyde and Clyde North.

The  PSP covers an area of approximately 952 hectares and is bounded by Cardinia Creek to the north and east, Ballarto Road to the south, Smiths Lane and the future Bells Road to the west, and Muddy Gates Lane, and McCormacks road to the east. This precinct will ultimately support a residential community of approximately 28,300 people and deliver more than 1,600 local jobs.

Infrastructure Contributions

An ICP is a simplified system for funding basic and essential local infrastructure required by a new community.

The ICP may be made of one or two parts, a standard levy and/ or a supplementary levy. The standard levy is a pre-set rate that may be used to fund transport, community and recreation infrastructure and public land provision. In particular circumstances a supplementary levy may also apply.

Through the preparation of Precinct Structure Plans, the VPA together with Councils has sought to understand and plan for the needs of the future community by anticipating the requirements of roads, intersections, bridges, community buildings and sports and recreation facilities.

This local infrastructure is funded through an Infrastructure Contributions Plan (ICP).

Within the south east growth area the standard levy for is $339,000 per net developable hectare for residential areas and $158,500 per net developable hectare for employment areas.

Within the north west growth area the standard levy for is $328,500 per net developable hectare for residential areas and $155,000 per net developable hectare for employment areas.

More information relating to the ICP can be found here.

More information relating to infrastructure items proposed for a particular PSP can be found in the Precinct Infrastructure Plan of that PSP.

The types of infrastructure that can be included in an ICP are referred to as allowable items.
