Where the plan applies
The proposed Collison Estate Development Plan and accompanying Development Contributions Plan will apply to land in the Collison Estate, Cranbourne East outlined in red in the below image. The Estate is bounded by Casey Fields Boulevard and Mayfield Road to the west, Linsell Boulevard to the north, Berwick-Cranbourne Road to the south and the rear boundary of properties east of Collison Road.
The City of Casey has prepared a Planning Scheme Amendment (C286case) which will give effect to the proposed Collison Estate Development Contributions Plan (DCP) and help implement the proposed Collison Estate Development Plan (DP) into the Casey Planning Scheme.
Council officers have been working with key stakeholders, including some landowners in Collison Estate, to prepare the draft DP, DCP, and Amendment C286case.
The proposed DP provides a high-level framework guiding the redevelopment of the Estate into an integrated residential development consisting of approximately 1,700 allotments. It provides diversity in dwelling types and sizes, whilst optimising the site’s proximity to existing services and open spaces. The DP also seeks to provide for a local neighbourhood activity centre and community facilities within the Estate which will facilitate a greater level of amenity and services for the Estate and the wider community.
In 2020, the City of Casey resolved to also prepare the DCP and apply a Development Contribution Plan Overlay (DCPO) to the Estate. In 2022, Council placed the draft DP and DCP on preliminary community consultation. Members of the community made 52 written submissions during the consultation where Council made changes to the DP. Council resolved to advance the project to the next step by requesting authorisation from the State Government Minister for Planning to exhibit the planning scheme amendment, which was granted in October 2023.
The 2022 community consultation allowed the community to review the plans and vision for the Collison precinct. This recent public exhibition communicates how that vision will be incorporated into the Casey Planning Scheme via Amendment C286case so development can proceed.
Public inspection of Amendment C286
Public inspection closed on 11 January 2024. Council will review all submissions.
