Wonthaggi North East Precinct

Wonthaggi North East Precinct

Wonthaggi North East has been identified as a project on the VPA’s Fast Track Program.

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) assisted the Bass Coast Shire in 2018 in preparing a draft plan for the Wonthaggi North East Precinct. Bass Coast Shire have undertaken extensive consultation on the draft plan over the last two years.

The VPA will be reviewing all submissions made during the consultation of the plan by Bass Coast Shire to finalise a draft plan.

The VPA is determining the extent of further consultation required to complete the plan for the Minister’s consideration.

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 Wonthaggi North East Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) and Development Contributions Plan (DCP) will facilitate approximately 4,900 lots and 400 jobs in the Wonthaggi North East growth area.
