The VPA has activated its business continuity plan in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are working remotely and this may cause some disruptions to our work program. We are working hard to limit any impacts but some unavoidable delays and postponements will occur.
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA), in consultation with Greater Shepparton City Council and Government agencies, is preparing the Shepparton South East Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) to guide new urban development in Shepparton.
The PSP will provide up to 2,500 homes to accommodate a population of more than 6,000. The PSP will build upon existing commercial land with retail centre and extensive existing aged care accommodation, while improving community facilities and local parks.
The PSP is the largest of five proposed major growth corridors in the Shepparton-Mooroopna urban area. The precinct applies to approximately 385 hectares of land and is bounded by the Midland Highway (Benalla Road) to the north, the Shepparton Alternate Route (Doyles Road) to the east, the Broken River to the south and the existing limit of residential development to the west.
Key opportunities for the precinct include:
encourage commercial and aged care facilities
improvements to open space network
provision for local town centres and community facilities
integrate with adjoining Activity Centre and employment areas
