Planning Scheme Amendment C88 – Ballan Strategic Directions

Moorabool Shire has prepared Amendment C88 to the Moorabool Planning Scheme. The Amendment is based on implementation of the Strategy the “Ballan Strategic Directions” (adopted by Council in November 2017).

Amendment C88 seeks to:

  • Apply the State Government’s suite of residential zones to residential areas within Ballan as identified by the Ballan Strategic Directions.
  • Provide greater certainty over the level of housing change envisaged across Ballan and ensuring new development is directed to appropriate locations capable of accommodating change.
  • Ensure that new development is consistent with the preferred neighborhood character objectives for each precinct within Ballan.
  • Recognise the objectives of the Ballan Strategic Directions related to character and sense of place, environment, growth and infill development, the town centre and non-residential uses outside of the town centre.
  • Rezone the Ballan Industrial Estate from the Industrial 2 Zone to the Industrial 1 Zone. The existing Industrial 2 Zone provides for manufacturing industries and storage facilities which require a substantial threshold distance (of 1500m or more) to residential land. This is not appropriate due to the location of nearby existing residential land. The rezoning will not have any impact on the continuation of existing uses.

A brochure containing a summary of Amendment C88 is available here.

Amendment C88 documentation and planning maps can be viewed via the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) webpage https://www.planning.vic.gov.au/schemes-and-amendments/browse-amendments

Planning Scheme Amendment C81 - Bacchus Marsh Urban Growth Framework

Amendment C81 implements the Bacchus Marsh District Urban Growth Framework, 2018 (UGF), by updating the Municipal Strategic Statement in the Moorabool Planning Scheme.  The UGF was prepared in collaboration between Council and the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA).

The public exhibition period for Amendment C81 closed on 15 December 2017.  A Planning Panel was held in May and June 2018, to consider submissions received during the exhibition period.

Council considered the Planning Panel’s recommendations on 19 September 2018, and resolved to adopt Amendment C81 and the UGF, and to submit the amendment to the Minister for Planning for approval.  Below is a link to the adopted version of the UGF:

Details of the Amendment

Amendment C81 affects land in the urban and rural areas of Bacchus Marsh, Darley, Maddingley and Pentland Hills, together with the rural fringe areas of Merrimu, Parwan, Hopetoun Park, Coimadai (part), Long Forest (part) and Rowsley (part).

In addition to implementing the Bacchus Marsh UGF, Amendment C81 also deletes references to outdated strategies and implements relevant elements of the following strategies that have been adopted by Council:

  • Bacchus Marsh Integrated Transport Strategy (2015);
  • Moorabool Industrial Areas Strategy (2015);
  • Moorabool Shire Council Retail Strategy 2041 (2016); and
  • Moorabool Shire Economic Development Strategy (2015).

Amendment C81 promotes coordinated, master-planned development of identified areas in and around Bacchus Marsh, by identifying a need to:

  • Contain short to medium term residential development within the existing settlement boundary (infill and greenfield);
  • Prepare for medium to long term residential growth within the investigation areas at Merrimu, Parwan Station and Hopetoun Park (refer to Figure 1);
  • Require precinct structure plans for any urban growth precincts at Merrimu and Parwan Station, and a development plan for any growth precinct at Hopetoun Park, and ensure that such plans provide for appropriate community and social infrastructure, activity centres, schools, integrated transport, reticulated services and local job opportunities;
  • Prepare a precinct structure plan for Parwan Employment Precinct (refer to Figure 1), to address key infrastructure and land use priorities that will deliver value-added and vertically or horizontally integrated agribusiness/industries; and
  • Work with State Government and other relevant servicing authorities towards the servicing of Parwan Employment Precinct, with particular emphasis on the provision of reticulated water and gas.

It is important to note that Amendment C81 does not rezone any land.  It provides a strategic framework for determining where future urban growth precincts and employment growth precincts will occur.  A future, separate planning scheme amendment will be required, to identify exact boundaries for these precincts and to rezone land to facilitate master-planned urban development.

Bacchus Marsh is growing rapidly by virtue of its proximity to Melbourne and the jobs and opportunities this brings.  Lifestyle and amenity are key growth drivers, along with affordable housing and land.  Quality regional health and education facilities along with high quality surrounding rural landscapes enhance the liveability of Bacchus Marsh.  Agriculture, local resources (sand and coal) and local industry provide further opportunities.

State Planning Policy identifies that Bacchus Marsh can and should grow due to these advantages.  The UGF provides a long term land use vision of how growth can be delivered, matched with co‑ordinated infrastructure delivery by agencies and other stakeholders.

Identifying the growth needs and opportunities to 2041 (and beyond) are key elements of the UGF.  Underpinning the UGF is extensive community and agency engagement defining key principles and objectives from protecting the irrigation district through to planning future urban growth precincts and additional local employment.  Extensive background analysis concerning environmental constraints and infrastructure opportunities has been undertaken. Within the UGF there are over-arching principles, identified opportunities for growth and principles for how this can be delivered via the planning system.

The UGF provides a longer term land use vision of how growth can be planned for, matched with coordinated infrastructure delivery by agencies and other stakeholders.  The vision of the UGF is:

Bacchus Marsh will be an emerging regional growth centre, providing metropolitan-edge convenience, set within a distinctive agricultural valley framed by steep escarpments and significant waterways.  Bacchus Marsh will be planned as a rural city in a farming district and as the gateway to Victoria’s Central Highlands region. 

Bacchus Marsh will draw new residents, investors and tourists due to its livability, comparatively affordable land, diversity of residential lot sizes, access to services and attractive landscapes. Bacchus Marsh Irrigation District is a food bowl for Victoria and a range of State significant natural resources present opportunities for economic growth.  As a rural city, Bacchus Marsh’s service role and investment in education, health, retail and local industry will be strengthened.  The combination of landscape, natural resources and livability are unique to Bacchus Marsh and will be central to managing future growth.

The UGF will ensure that Bacchus Marsh remains a regional settlement with its own unique identity and not a physical extension of Melton or part of Melbourne’s rapid growth.  It includes a strategy for implementation, which will ensure that road networks, rail corridors, local services and opportunities are provided for residents and visitors to enjoy. 

 

Moorabool Shire has prepared Amendment C79 to the Moorabool Planning Scheme. The Amendment is based on implementation of the Strategy “Housing Bacchus Marsh to 2041” (adopted by Council in August, 2016).        

The public exhibition period for Amendment C79 closed on 15 December 2017.  A Planning Panel was held in May and June 2018, to consider submissions received during the exhibition period.

A copy of the Panel's Report including the  Panel’s recommendations can be found here

Council adopted all of the Panel's recommedations at its meeting on 1 August 2018.  The amendment was submitted to the Minister for Planning for approval in August 2018.             

Bacchus Marsh has specifically been identified in the State Government Strategies Plan Melbourne and the Central Highlands Regional Growth Plan as a suitable location to accommodate growth due to its regional service centre role, its relative accessibility to Melbourne, Geelong and Ballarat, its well established town centre and the availability of greenfield and infill development opportunities.

Housing Bacchus Marsh is a localised response to the State Governments identification of Bacchus Marsh as an area for growth. It seeks to influence the form and location of future growth to ensure that growth can occur in appropriate locations, whilst simultaneously promoting good design and desirable neighbourhood character elements. Under the proposed amendment, some areas can expect to experience more or less neighbourhood change than others.

The implementation of Housing Bacchus Marsh to 2041 will mostly affect newly proposed medium density and unit developments, but it will also affect subdivision and other controls in certain areas. The methodology for determining levels of change has been based on neighbourhood character, infrastructure and landscape constraints, proximity to public transport, proximity to services and other factors.

 

Objectives for the Housing Strategy include:

  • Providing an integrated body of work which captures the key aspects of housing supply and demand for Bacchus Marsh.
  • Identifying housing stock diversity targets and how these targets can be achieved.
  • Developing a clear direction and policy to enable orderly growth, managed change and the retention of key elements of neighbourhood character.
  • Developing a strategy for residential growth that considers the specific pressures for housing in Bacchus Marsh and the desire to support investment into, and access to, key activity centres throughout the settlement.
  • Providing a basis for Moorabool Shire Council to develop a clear vision on housing issues across Bacchus Marsh.
     

Amendment C79 is comprised of:

  • Changes to Residential Zones and Zone Schedules.
  • Including the adopted Council Strategy “Housing Bacchus Marsh to 2041” as a reference document to the Moorabool Planning Scheme. The Strategy includes 32 neighbourhood character precincts each with corresponding design guidelines.
  • Changes to policy text and maps in the Municipal Strategic Statement of the Moorabool Planning Scheme, including Clause 21.07 (Bacchus Marsh) and Clause 21.03 (Settlement and Housing).

 

What areas are affected by Amendment C79 and how?

The Amendment is primarily based on three elements.

  1. Zones and Zone Schedules 
  2. Neighbourhood Character Precincts
  3. Settlement Types

 

Zones and Zone Schedules

The current zoning and proposed zoning of Bacchus Marsh and the wider area is depicted here.

 

What do the Zoning and Schedule Changes mean?

The meaning will depend on the existing zoning. Under Amendment C79 most properties in Bacchus Marsh are proposed to retain the same zone but have a new zone schedule. In these cases it means there could be different requirements to State Standard requirements that would most often affect medium density development proposals and subdivision.

A small number of properties are also proposed to be rezoned under Amendment C79. This will typically have a greater impact on development rights and options. If your property is proposed to be rezoned you may wish to review the proposed zone on the amendments online page www.delwp.vic.gov.au/public-inspection.

 

Proposed Zone Schedule Proposed differences to State-wide Clause 54 and 55 Standards Proposed Minimum Lot Size for Subdivision Proposed Other Requirements

Settlement Types

Amendment C79 includes four settlement types available on a large map here. In order of least to most neighbourhood change these growth types can be ordered as “Minimal”, “Natural”, “Increased” and “Greenfield” growth. The settlement types are likely to affect the future change neighbourhoods can expect to experience, particularly in terms of medium density housing.  A Planning Permit application that accords with the settlement type for the area would be more likely to be supported.

 

Description of Settlement Types   Selection criteria (methodology) for areas within this settlement type
Minimal Residential Growth  Will predominantly comprise of detached dwellings, generally of a modest scale, with dual occupancies, of one to two storeys only being supported where the intent of the settlement type and preferred character is not compromised.

Any specific neighbourhood character and/or heritage significance that requires protecting within the precinct.

Any significant infrastructure constraints within the precinct.

Any significant landscape constraints within the precinct.

The ability of the precinct to undergo change.

The ability of the precinct to access services and facilities, including public transport.

An assessment of the precinct against the change area matrix included at Annexure 2 to Housing Bacchus Marsh to 2041.

Natural Residential Growth

Will allow for modest housing growth and a variety of housing typologies in the form of townhouses and multi-dwelling developments, with detached houses continuing to dominate. Low scale medium density housing and alternative housing typologies  (such as co-housing, retirement villages, aged care etc) may be appropriate in areas within the precincts that are more accessible to public transport, activity centres and open space than others.

Precincts that are generally not within walking catchment of key public transport routes and activity centre catchments.

Precincts which are partially constrained by environmental or physical conditions, as identified in the planning scheme or other Council data, such as covenants, servicing etc.

Precincts that generally do not have significant heritage or neighbourhood character values.

The ability of the precinct to undergo change.

An assessment of the precinct against the change area matrix included at Annexure 2 Housing Bacchus Marsh to 2041.

Increased Residential Growth

Housing development will generally be in the form of townhouse and multi-dwelling Developments with opportunities for apartments and alternative forms of housing (co-housing, aged care, retirement villages, etc).

 

 

Precincts that are within a walkable catchment of the Bacchus Marsh Railway Station and/or bus services.

Precincts that are generally within close proximity to activity centres or where access to some level of services and facilities are within a walkable catchment (i.e. Bacchus Marsh Town Centre, Darley Plaza, the proposed Activity Centre in the Stonehill development, Maddingley and the shopping strip on Grant Street).

The ability of the precinct to undergo change.

An assessment of the precinct against the change area matrix included at Annexure 2 to Housing Bacchus Marsh to 2041.

Greenfield Residential Growth Given the current status of these developments, with a number of approvals issued  (or soon to be issued), as part of preparing Housing Bacchus Marsh to 2041, there is limited ability to redirect development within these areas. It is noted that these areas are a critical source of land supply for Bacchus Marsh to 2041, and will play a crucial role in meeting the housing needs of current and future residents.

Planning Scheme Amendment C76 - Moorabool Agribusiness Industrial Area

Amendment C76 to the Moorabool Planning Scheme has been approved.

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 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.

The Amendment documentation and supporting documents can also be inspected free of charge on the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning website at  www.delwp.vic.gov.au/public-inspection.

Full copies of the Amendment documentation can be viewed at Council offices at the following locations during office hours, free of charge:

  • 15 Stead Street, Ballan
  • Lerderderg Library - Customer Service, 215 Main Street, Bacchus Marsh
  • Darley Civic and Community Hub, 182 Halletts Way, Darley

Panel Hearing

Amendment C76 was considered by a planning panel at a public hearing held on 1 June 2017.  The Planning Panel recommended that the amendment be adopted, subject to changes.

Council Adoption

Council adopted Amendment C76, with changes as outlined by the Panel, at its ordinary meeting on 2 August 2017.  The amendment has subsequently been submitted to the Minister for Planning for approval.

Planning Scheme Amendment Process

The Moorabool Planning Scheme is subordinate legislation, approved by the Minister for Planning, that uses the Victoria Planning Provisions to establish the land use and development controls applying within Moorabool. As our municipality changes, or as the Victoria Planning Provisions change, Council's strategy and planning controls may also change. These changes must be reflected in the Moorabool Planning Scheme. As a change to the planning scheme is changing the rules applying to the land, the process, if authorised, may take several years and require significant strategic work to support the proposal. Excluding background preparation stages, the average time taken to process an amendment in Victoria is just under two years (authorisation, exhibition, consideration of submissions, Panel, consideration of Panel, Council decision, Ministers decision).

Initiating a Planning Scheme Amendment

A planning scheme amendment can be initiated by any planning authority as specified by the Planning and Environment Act 1987. A planning authority is any Minister or agency that has been authorised by the Minister for Planning to prepare amendments. In most cases, the initiating planning authority is a local Council, but it may be another Minister.

Anyone can ask a planning authority to prepare an amendment. If you do, you must be able to demonstrate to the planning authority (usually the Council) adequate justification as to why an amendment should be prepared. Council, as a planning authority, must ascertain that the amendment has planning merit and is consistent with the future strategic directions for the municipality, including that:

  • Must have regard to the Minister's directions and the Victoria Planning Provisions;
  • Must have regard to any municipal strategic statement, strategic plan, policy statement, code or guideline which forms part of the scheme;
  • Must take into account any significant effects which it considers the scheme or amendment might have on the environment or which it considers the environment might have on any use or development envisaged in the scheme or amendment; and
  • Must take into account its social effects and economic effects.

In order for Council to meet the requirements of the Act and consider any rezoning request the following information is required to accompany any request to prepare a planning scheme amendment:

  • A response to the Strategic Assessment Guidelines;
  • Any relevant background reports to demonstrate the suitability of the land for the proposed purpose;
  • Letters from relevant authorities in relation to issues to be considered in any proposed controls;
  • A complete set of draft amendment documents for consideration;
  • The initial fee required under the Planning and Environment (Fees) Regulations;
  • Acknowledgement of a willingness to meet all statutory fees and future panel costs if Council were to proceed with the amendment.

What are the Strategic Assessment Guidelines?

  • Why is an amendment required?
  • Does the amendment implement the objectives of planning and any environmental, social and economic effects?
  • Does the amendment address relevant bushfire risk?
  • Does the amendment comply with all the relevant Minister’s Directions?
  • Does the amendment support or implement the State Planning Policy Framework?
  • Does the amendment support or implement the Local Planning Policy Framework?
  • Does the amendment make proper use of the Victoria Planning Provisions?
  • How does the amendment address the views of any relevant agency?
  • Does the amendment address the requirements of the Transport Integration Act 2010?
  • What impact will the new planning provisions have on the resource and administrative costs of the responsible authority?

What happens once my submission is lodged?

Unlike a planning permit (assessment made under the scheme) Council is under no obligation to undertake a planning scheme amendment. Once an application is lodged Council will endeavour to commence the internal assessment of the proposal. The timing of this will be dependent on the resources available and the existing work program.

During this process Council officers will work with the proponent to ensure that the documentation provided complies with the Planning and Environment Act and that the appropriate planning tools are being utilised before a report is prepared to Council. Council officers will seek the views of relevant agencies prior to reporting to Council. This identifies any wider issues that the proponent may need to address and is envisaged in the strategic assessment guidelines (how does the amendment address the views of any relevant agency). The proponent may wish to include in their report any agency discussions and how the proposed amendment responds.

When the VPP’s were introduced a wider range of uses were able to be undertaken in zones with the aim of negating the need for site specific amendments. This type of amendment will generally not be supported and must be supported by the SPPF and LPPF. Where there is a strategic reason for the change Council determine address multiple site specific amendment requests via the one amendment on a time scale that reflects existing amendments in the system and Council’s strategic priorities.

As an amendment is not about making a decision under existing rules but proposes to change the rules, Council as a planning authority is under no obligation to seek authorisation from the Minister to prepare a planning scheme amendment.

If you want to request an amendment you are encouraged to make a pre application meeting with Council. Prior to this meeting you should have read the relevant State and local planning policies to discuss how your request is strategically supported and have considered any relevant direction or practice note.

Lodging a Submission to a Proposed Planning Scheme Amendment

As part of an amendment process, the community is consulted on proposed planning scheme amendments. The Minister for Planning may prepare amendments to the planning scheme without public notice.

Anyone can lodge a submission about an amendment. A submission may support the amendment, oppose the amendment, or suggest changes to the amendment. Submissions should focus on issues relevant to land use and development issues outlined in the planning scheme, Ministerial Directions and planning practice notes.

If Council wishes to proceed with an amendment for which there are unresolved submissions, Council requests the Minister for Planning to appoint a Planning Panel to hear submissions to the amendment.

Your submission should be lodged before the closing date of the exhibition of the amendment so you have the opportunity to present your views to a panel (if one is appointed to consider submissions).

Planning Panel

A planning panel may be appointed by the Minister for Planning to consider the submissions and the amendment. The panel:

  • Reviews the submissions;
  • Conducts a public hearing;
  • Considers the amendment, and
  • Prepares an independent report with recommendations about the amendment for Council.

After the panel hearing, the panel has 6 - 8 weeks to provide a report to Council with its recommendations on the amendment. While Council has no obligation to adopt the panel's recommendations they must outline reasons why they have not adopted the Panel’s recommendations for consideration by the Minister. The proponent will be responsible for payment of panel costs as invoiced from Planning Panels Victoria.

Approval Process

Once an amendment has been adopted by Council, it is submitted to the Minister for Planning for final approval. The Minister will consider Council’s recommendations and the recommendation of any Planning Panel in making his decision. The Minister may approve the amendment with or without change or not approve the amendment. The Minister’s decision is published in the Victoria Government Gazette. If the amendment is approved it must lay on the floor of Parliament for two sitting weeks in which time it may be revoked by Parliament. Once the Minister approves the amendment, it then becomes part of the Moorabool Planning Scheme.

Fees and Other Expenses

Many proponents engage the services of private planning professionals to assist them in the preparation of their rezoning request and to guide them through the process. Depending on the site and the nature of the proposal the request may need to be accompanied by expert reports – for example flora and fauna, traffic and aboriginal cultural heritage. The proponent must prepare all required background data to the satisfaction of Council.

All costs associated with the preparation of an amendment are borne by the proponent, including all statutory fees (Planning and Environment Fees Regulations) and Planning Panel hearing expenses, and any additional private expenses, for example the preparation of the amendment and the engagement of professional representation for Panel hearings.
