Lilydale Quarry Strategic Site
Lilydale Quarry has been identified as a project on the VPA’s Fast Track Program. The Minister has directed the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) to lead the preparation and finalisation of the Lilydale Quarry precinct and associated draft planning scheme amendment C193.
Yarra Ranges Shire recently undertook a detailed engagement process with agencies. The VPA will be reviewing all agency submissions in preparing a plan for a public consultation phase.
Depending on the submissions received during consultation the Minister for Planning will determine if the project will utilise the VPA Projects Standing Advisory Committee to consider unresolved matters and provide advice to the Minister and the VPA prior to finalising an amendment for the Minister’s consideration.
The VPA will be ensuring greater resources and prioritisation of the project’s finalisation occurs in a timely manner.
Located in Melbourne’s north-east, Lilydale Quarry has been identified as a strategic site for urban renewal. The comprehensive development plan will outline future development for the site, to make room for residential and community activities.
Places Victoria (now Development Victoria) previously completed a proposed draft master plan for the area which included extensive community engagement practices.
