Amendment C242gshe – Tatura Urban Growth Zone

Greater Shepparton City Council (Council) has prepared Amendment C242gshe to the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme (Planning Scheme).

The Amendment affects approximately 602 hectares of land to the north and east of Tatura, generally bound by the Midland Highway and Pyke Road to the north; Dhurringile and Bayunga Roads to the east; Cussen Park, Pyke Road and Murton Road to the south; and Dhurringile and Tatura-Undera Roads to the west.

The land is included within the settlement boundary for Tatura, which is identified in the Tatura Framework Plan at Clause 11.01-1L Settlement - Urban growth and consolidation of the Planning Scheme.

The Amendment rezones the majority of the yet-to-be developed land within the settlement boundary zoned Farming Zone, Low Density Residential Zone and Rural Living Zone to the Urban Growth Zone to safeguard the land for future development as strategic residential growth corridors.

Specifically, the Amendment makes the following changes to the Planning Scheme:

  • rezones land to the Urban Growth Zone;
  • amends Planning Scheme Map Nos. 6, 7, 8 and 10; and
  • amends Clause 11.01-1L Settlement - Urban growth and consolidation to update the Tatura Framework Plan.

Council is currently preparing a precinct structure plan (PSP) and development contributions plan (DCP) under the Tatura Growth Areas Structure Plan project. The PSP and DCP will provide an overarching strategic framework for any future development of the land within the structure plan area. The PSP will outline the quantum of infrastructure required to support any future residential development and the DCP will seek to apportion to the cost of constructing these infrastructure items equitably to all land identified for future development.

When the PSP and DCP are completed, they will be subject to a further planning scheme amendment seeking to incorporate them into the Planning Scheme.
