Greater Shepparton City Council is currently preparing a structure plan for all land identified for future residential purposes in Tatura.
Council is undertaking pre-draft consultation with all landowners and occupiers of land within the study area to inform the preparation of a draft TIA and IWMP.
Any feedback received during the pre-draft consultation will be considered in the preparation of the draft reports. Have your say via the link below.
The Greater Shepparton Housing Strategy 2011 (GSHS) was prepared to guide the long term identification and provision of residential land within the City of Greater Shepparton. The GSHS was implemented into the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme (Planning Scheme) in 2012 via Amendment C93. Amendment C93 included framework plans in the Planning Scheme that identified land that may accommodate future development following detailed investigations. Such investigations seek to better understand the ability of the land to be developed for residential purposes and at what density.
The Greater Shepparton Townships Framework Plan Review 2019 (Framework Plan) was prepared to evaluate and update the framework plans for nine of the ten townships that the GSHS provided framework plans for. Amendment C212 implemented the Framework Plans into the Planning Scheme, and was approved and gazetted by the Minister for Planning in June 2020.
The Shepparton Residential Land Supply & Demand Assessment September 2019 has identified a shortage of residential zoned land in Tatura, and concluded that additional residential land supply must be realised in the short-term.
Council has allocated funding in 2020/2021 to commence planning and investigation works for the Tatura Structure Plan. These work must be completed before any additional land can be zoned for residential purposes. The structure plan will guide the future development of all land yet-to-be-rezoned for residential purposes and it will identify all infrastructure required to support the future development of the land.
A planning scheme amendment will then be prepared to implement the structure plan before land can be rezoned and, subsequently, developed for residential purposes.
