Managing our growth

The City of Casey is one of Australia's fastest growing regions:

  • We are one of the fastest growing municipality in Victoria, behind Wyndham and Whittlesea.
  • Our population is forecast to grow from approximately 323,604 in 2017 to 514,800 by 2041.

Information below will give some guidance to how the City of Casey is managing our population and economic growth.

All land in Casey’s growth areas is subject to either a Development Plan which is a Council led process, or a Precinct Structure Plan, a process led by The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA). This organisation is in charge of planning for long-term development within the growth area precincts.

Development Plans

Development plans apply to growth area land that does not fall within growth area precincts.

View Development Plans for growth areas in Casey.

Precinct Structure Plans

Precinct Structure Plans (PSPs) are master plans for new communities, between 10,000 and 30,000 people. PSPs set out the vision for how land should be developed to ensure a quality and affordable lifestyle for future communities, PSPs are led by the VPA. 

PSPs plan for projects such as:

  • population growth
  • roads and transport
  • housing
  • employment
  • parks and community facilities

You can view PSPs for Casey's growth areas. Or access Victoria’s PSPs from the Victorian Planning Authority website.

Development Contributions Plans 

Development Contributions Plans (DCPs) help identify key services and infrastructure required to support the new communities. They are a component of a PSP, You can access DCPs on the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) website.


  • Identify and provide costings for the infrastructure projects throughout the precinct.
  • Establish funding framework  for the delivery of these projects.
  • Ensure the cost is shared equitably between the various developers and the wider community.

Infrastructure Contribution Plans 

Infrastructure Contribution Plans (ICPs) have replaced DCPs in new PSPs. The infrastructure within Minta Farm, Croskell, Casey Fields South Employment and Devon Meadows, and eventually Clyde South will be funded through ICPs.
