Council has prepared an Amendment C76 to the Moorabool Planning Scheme in relation to Moorabool Agribusiness Industrial Area.
The amendment rezones 190 hectares of land at 3922 Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road, Parwan, from Farming Zone to Industrial 1 Zone. The amendment is required to facilitate the development of the Moorabool Agribusiness Industrial Area. The amendment also rezones 116 hectares of land described as PC362391Y from Industrial 1 Zone to Farming Zone, as this land is unsuitable for industrial development due to drainage constraints. A revised Schedule 1 to the Development Plan Overlay (DPO1) will guide the future industrial use and development on part of 3922 Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road, Parwan, described as Lots 1 and 2 TP188461. The revised DPO1 includes the concept plan above for the Moorabool Agribusiness Industrial Area:
The amendment updates the Municipal Strategic Statement to include strategic directions in Clauses 21.01-2, 21.04-4 and 21.07-3 (including the Bacchus Marsh Framework Plan) to provide an appropriate strategic context to facilitate the Moorabool Agribusiness Industrial Area.
