Whitehorse City Council

Amendment C170

Frasers Property Australia (formerly known as Australand) owns the former brickworks site at 78 Middleborough Road, Burwood East.  This key strategic redevelopment site is located within the Burwood Heights Activity Centre.

At its meeting on 27 January 2015, Council adopted a masterplan prepared by Australand to guide future development of the site following extensive community consultation on the masterplan and proposed planning controls in October and November 2014. As part of its decision, Council supported preparation of Whitehorse Planning Scheme Amendment C170 to implement the masterplan. Amendment C170 proposed: 

  • Rezoning the site to a combination of Residential Growth Zone schedule 3, General Residential Zone schedule 5 generally along the northern and eastern edges of the site and to the Commercial 1 Zone for the proposed shopping centre.
  • Adding a Development Plan Overlay to ensure the desired development outcomes contained in the master plan are achieved. It is proposed that future planning applications that are generally in accordance with the approved masterplan be considered without advertising to the community.
  • Updating the existing local planning policies in the planning scheme. Many of the principles contained in these policies are still relevant and will remain. 
  • The Minister for Planning approved Amendment C170 under Section 20(4) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 on 12 August 2015 and it came into effect on 10 September 2015 when the amendment was published in the Victoria Government Gazette.
