Investigation Area 1 – Feasibility Study and Master Plan, 2017

Urban Enterprise Pty Ltd prepared the Investigation Area 1 - Feasibility Study and Master Plan, Greater Shepparton City Council, October 2017 (the Master Plan).

Investigation Area 1 includes all land bound by River Road, the Goulburn Valley Highway, Mitchell Road, and Archer Roads in Kialla.

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”.

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”.

The Masterplan was adopted by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting held on 17 October 2017 and was implemented into the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme through Amendment C199.

Amendment C199 to the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme implemented the findings and recommendations of the Master Plan. Amendment C199 was approved by the Minister for Planning and was gazetted in the Victoria Government Gazette on 15 March 2018.
