The Greater Shepparton Housing Strategy 2011 identified the “Kialla Paceway and Shepparton Racing Environs” as Investigation Area 1. It states “further work is required on land conditions, servicing and development potential before future zoning options can be fully assessed and determined”.
Investigation Area 1 includes all land bound by River Road, the Goulburn Valley Highway, Mitchell Road, and Archer Roads in Kialla.
The Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme at Clause 21.04 – Settlement provides the following direction for Investigation Area 1:
“Investigation Area 1 – Kialla Paceway and Shepparton Greyhound Racing environs. This area surrounds and includes the greyhound and trotting facilities and is directly adjacent to the Shepparton South Growth Corridor. There is potential to extend services to this land. However, future residential development within this area will be dependent on amenity issues such as lighting, noise, odour and dust being addressed to ensure that the long term interests of the racing facilities are protected”.
Urban Enterprise Pty Ltd has prepared the Feasibility Study & Masterplan for Investigation Area 1.
The final Feasibility and Masterplan was endorsed by Council at the Special Council Meeting held 14 September 2016.
The Final Feasibility Study and Masterplan will inform a subsequent planning scheme amendment to implement its findings and recommendations. It will provide a framework for the future development of this area.
