PMP Printing Precinct

The PMP Printing Development Contributions Plan was approved by the Minister for Planning and gazetted on 10 September, 2021.

To view a copy of the final amendment documentation, including the PMP Printing Precinct – Development Contributions Plan and the Comprehensive Development Plan, refer to:

PMP Printing Precinct

The PMP Printing Precinct is a 10 hectare site located between the former Clayton Primary School site, Carinish Road and Browns Road, including land east of Bendix Drive.

The precinct will transform from industrial land into a mixed-use residential and commercial strategic site to accommodate around 1,180 new homes and 1,000 local jobs.

VPA Fast Track Program

The PMP Printing Precinct was identified as a project on the VPA’s Fast Track Program. You can read more about the  VPA’s Fast Track Program here.

Background information

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is an independent statutory authority that reports to the Victorian Minister for Planning and is a key source of strategic planning advice.

The VPA’s main task is to make sure Melbourne and Victoria’s regions remain great places to live. This requires vision and long-term planning, to ensure Victorians have equitable access to employment, public transport, attractive public space and affordable housing for our growing population.

A “mixed-use” precinct is an area that has a variety of uses. In the case of this precinct, it will have housing, open spaces and commercial activities.

Project information

The PMP Printing site is located within the municipality of Monash, which means that the planning for this site must align with local and state planning objectives defined in the Monash Planning Scheme. The VPA has regularly consulted with Monash City Council to prepare the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) and the planning scheme amendment documentation for this site.

The PMP Printing Strategic Site has been identified as a project on the VPA’s Fast Track Program. You can read more about the VPA’s Fast Track Program here.

The project will use the VPA Projects Standing Advisory Committee to consider unresolved matters and provide advice to the Minister and the VPA prior to VPA finalising the amendment for the Minister for Planning’s consideration.

Over time, the site will be converted from industrial land use into a new community that incorporates diverse housing opportunities, local employment and high-quality public spaces.

New development will respond to the existing character of the area, and new low and medium-rise residential buildings may be built around the perimeter of the site. Building heights will transition to medium-rise residential buildings within the central, residential zoned areas of the site. Other changes will include new retail and community facilities, open space and new jobs.

Development is likely to occur gradually and existing industrial activities are likely to continue to operate along Bendix Drive for some time.

Once the planning scheme amendment process is complete, developers and/or landowners within the site can apply for a planning permit to develop in line with the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP).

The CDP and associated statutory documents will provide Monash City Council with a decision-making framework to consider future planning permit applications. This will allow changes in land use to proceed over time.

The PMP Printing site is privately owned by several different landowners. There are also a number of businesses operating within the site along the eastern boundary.

These businesses will be able to continue to operate within the site, even after the completion of the planning process. Once the planning scheme amendment process is complete, developers and/or landowners within the site can apply for a planning permit to develop in line with the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP).
