The amendment seeks to implement the proposed Minta Farm PSP and considers a concurrent permit application for the first stage of subdivision.

Specifically, the amendment seeks to make the following changes to the Casey Planning Scheme:

  • Rezone part of the PSP area to Rural Conservation Zone (RCZ) being land within Conservation Area 36 and generally located along the eastern boundary of the PSP area;
  • Amend Clause 22.01 to include the Minta Farm Local Town Centre and Local Convenience Centre;
  • Apply Schedule 6 to the Environmental Significance Overlay (ESO6) to the land zoned as RCZ;
  • Insert Schedule 2 to the Incorporated Plan Overlay (IPO2) into the Casey Planning Scheme and apply it to the land zoned as RCZ; 
  • Amend the schedule to the Heritage Overlay to include a proposed application of a local heritage site to part of one land parcel;
  • Amend the Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO1) to allow for the intersection of O’Shea Road and Soldiers Road;
  • Amend the Schedule to Clause 52.17 to identify native vegetation areas exempt from requiring a planning permit within the PSP area;
  • Amend the Schedule to Clause 61.03 to update the relevant Planning Scheme maps;
  • Amend the Schedule to Clause 66.04 to include a referral provision to the Victorian Planning Authority; and
  • Amend the Schedule to Clause 81.01 to include a new incorporated document titled “Minta Farm Precinct Structure Plan, October 2017”.
