Mooroopna West Growth Corridor, 2009

The Mooroopna West Growth Corridor comprises 260 hectares of developable land and is bound by the established urban area of Mooroopna to the east, Cornish Road to the north, the proposed Goulburn Valley Highway (Shepparton Bypass) reservation to the west along Excelsior Avenue and the Midland Highway to the south.

The Growth Corridor is expected to take 30 years to fully develop and is expected to support a population of 3,937 based on a total lot yield of 1,600 lots.

Please note that Amendments C160 and C167 to the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme corrected a number of errors and anomalies within the zones and overlays within the Growth Corridor, as well as the accompanying Structure Plan and Development Contributions Plan.

Mooroopna West Growth Corridor - DCPO3

The development contribution rates are generally adjusted annually for the duration of the Mooroopna West Growth Corridor Development Contributions Plan.

The construction costs are adjusted using the Building Price Index (BPI) for Regional Victoria contained within the latest version of Rawlinson's Australia Construction Handbook. It will be calculated after 1 July each year on the date that the BPI is either published or any initial forecast figures are confirmed.

The land acquisition valuations for all land acquired by Council within the Growth Corridor will also be adjusted in accordance with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on the date that the CPI is published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This annual update will take account of the previous quarterly increases published by the Bureau.

The development contribution rates were adjusted on 17 September 2023 and are applicable for the 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023 period. The next adjustment is due in late 2023 owing to the delay in the finalisation and confirmation of the June 2023 BPI figures by Rawlinson's.
