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.

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).
