Amendment C147 to Melton Planning Scheme
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA), in consultation with Melton City Council and government agencies, has prepared the Kororoit Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) to guide new urban development in the Kororoit area. This amendment was approved by the Minister for Planning on 1 February 2018.

The Kororoit PSP area covers approximately 925 hectares of land, bounded by Taylors Road and the Plumpton PSP area to the north, Caroline Springs to the east, the Western Freeway to the south, and the Outer Metropolitan Ring (OMR) reservation and approved Rockbank North PSP to the west. The Kororoit PSP will ultimately provide over 2,100 jobs and support a residential community of around 25,875 people in approximately 9,200 dwellings.
Kororoit PSP 1080.2 (Part 2) comprises the proposed Kororoit Regional Park area. The Kororoit PSP 1080.2 (Part 2) will proceed as a separate planning scheme amendment later in 2016 following separate landowner consultation and once the proposed park boundary and land acquisition process are finalised.

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.
