Planning Scheme Amendment C201 to the Melton Planning Scheme
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) in consultation with Melton City Council and relevant agencies has prepared the Mt Atkinson and Tarneit Plains Infrastructure Contributions Plan (August 2018).
The ICP will be incorporated into the Melton Planning Scheme and implemented through Schedule 1 to Clause 45.11 – Infrastructure Contributions Overlay via Amendment C201 to the Melton Planning Schemes.
The ICP is the primary method for local councils to collect funds to contribute towards the basic and essential local infrastructure new suburbs require.
The Mt Atkinson and Tarneit Plains Precinct Structure Plan (June 2017) (the PSP) guides new urban development in the Mt Atkinson and Tarneit Plains area. This was approved by the Minister for Planning and gazetted in September 2017.
The type and location of the local infrastructure, including public land, has been identified in the Mt Atkinson and Tarneit Plains PSP. Table 9 in the PSP identifies which infrastructure projects are to be funded through the ICP.
The merits and designs of the infrastructure items have been included in the PSP and have been subject to a publicly deliberated and resolved process in accordance with the Planning & Environment Act 1987.
Therefore, the current ICP amendment will not further consider the merits nor strategic need for each infrastructure item as this was resolved through the PSP process. Instead, the purpose of Amendment C201 is to provide detail on the costings and specification of each of the required infrastructure items.
