Wallan East Precinct Structure Plan
Wallan East Precinct Structure Plan has been identified as a project on the VPA’s Fast Track Program.
The project is currently in a phase of completing background studies, landowner and agency input in plan preparation. The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) will shortly commence preparation of a draft Precinct Structure Plan and planning scheme amendment before proceeding to agency engagement. This phase will be followed by a phase of final public consultation.
Depending on the submissions received during community 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.
The VPA will be preparing an Amendment to the Mitchell Planning Scheme for the Wallan South and Wallan East (Part 1) Precinct Structure Plan. The VPA will prepare this plan in consultation with the Mitchell Shire Council, government agencies and service authorities.
Wallan East (Part 1) Precinct Structure Plan covers a total of 140 hectares and is bounded by Epping-Kilmore Road to the east, Wallan-Whittlesea Road to the South, the Melbourne to Sydney rail line to the west and Kelby Lane to the north. It is envisaged that land uses will be designed to support and complement the existing Wallan township.
Wallan East Precinct Structure Plan is near several other ongoing and future Precinct Structure Plans in the Shire of Mitchell (Plan 1). It is important to note that the Wallan East Precinct Structure Plan has a close interrelationship with the Wallan South Precinct Structure Plan, which is located approximately 2 kilometres away and is being progressed concurrently. It is envisaged that together the Wallan South and Wallan East Precinct Structure Plans will support and complement the existing Wallan township by capitalising on opportunities arising from the Wallan Train station and other existing natural and physical assets.
