Hampton Park Hill Development Plan
The Hampton Park Hill Development Plan, July 2023 (the Plan) was adopted by City of Casey’s Administrators at the Council Meeting on Tuesday 18 July 2023.
City of Casey’s Administrators also resolved to request Ministerial consent for the preparation and exhibition of Planning Scheme Amendment C294 to the Casey Planning Scheme.
C294 proposes to amend Schedule 1 to the Special Use Zone and replace Schedule 1 with a new Schedule 25 to the Development Plan Overlay, and update local policy in the planning scheme. The changes proposed by C294 will assist in implementing the adopted Plan.
Further investigation will be undertaken into the Buffer Area Overlay to determine the merits of applying this overlay over existing residential development within 500 metres of the existing Hallam Road landfill. The outcome of this work will be reported at a future Council Meeting before the end of 2023.
Where the adopted Development Plan applies
The adopted Plan applies to land in Hampton Park as shown in Figure 1 below. The precinct is generally bounded by Ormond Road and Central Road to the north, the transmission line easement to the east, Glasscocks Road to the south, and Hallam Road/South Gippsland Highway to the west.
The Plan provides a high-level framework describing key elements of land use, built form, scale, connectivity and servicing provision to govern the future development of the land within the Development Plan area, and to guide decision making in relation to future land use, subdivision and development planning application proposals.
The Plan and any associated planning scheme amendment must be consistent with State Government policies, including Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, the State-wide Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan 2018 and the Hallam Waste and Resource Recovery Plan 2021.
The State Government has identified the site as one of 22 hubs of state importance for ‘waste and resource recovery’ activities to service the needs of the region. The Plan reflects the need of future waste and resource recovery activities, as well as employment, open space needs and environmental separation buffers.
Details of the Planning Scheme Amendment C294case will become available once the Minister for Planning has authorised the preparation and exhibition of the amendment.
Once Ministerial consent has been provided by the Minister for Planning, Planning Scheme Amendment C294 will be placed on public exhibition. The community will be consulted on the amendment and will be able to make submissions to City of Casey during the exhibition period.
Information about the adopted Development Plan is available to view on Council’s Casey Conversations website.
