The Amendment applies to land known as Lot 1 on Title Plan 756838J and Title Plan 548866P and the adjacent Wyndham and Fitzjohn Street road reserves. The land is located to the south-east of Victoria Park Lake and owned by Greater Shepparton City Council. The land has up until recently been occupied by a Shell service station, a Visitors Information Centre and café, and part of the land is currently used as a caravan park.

The amendment inserts a new Incorporated Document titled SAM Redevelopment Project, June 2017 into the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme.
