The Werribee Junction Precinct Structure Plan area was identified as a ‘logical inclusion’ within the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) by the Logical Inclusions Advisory Committee in 2011 and the Minister for Planning approved the amendment to expand the urban growth boundary to include Werribee Junction Precinct Structure Plan area in 2012. The Logical Inclusions Advisory Committee identified potential for employment uses focussed on industry and logistics, with potential for a small area of residential land and associated open space.
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) will commence pre-planning for the Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) in June/ July 2017. The VPA will be working closely with Wyndham City Council and other stakeholders in preparing the Werribee Junction Precinct Structure Plan.
As the Werribee Junction Precinct Structure Plan was not included in the Melbourne Strategic Assessment (MSA) and is not covered by the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy for Melbourne’s Growth Corridors (2013), the precinct will require a biodiversity assessment to determine conservation values.
