The community is invited to comment on the Daniel Robertson Draft Development Plan which has been submitted by Planning & Property Partners on behalf of Norcal Station Developments Pty Ltd. The Draft Development Plan proposes a mix of housing, open spaces, new roads and pathways.
The 4.9 hectare former brickworks site at 56-74 Station Street, Nunawading is identified as a Strategic Redevelopment Site in the Whitehorse Planning Scheme. In 2008 Council adopted the Nunawading/MegaMile Major Activity Centre and Mitcham Neighbourhood Activity Centre Structure Plan. The Structure Plan has guided future improvement of the Activity Centre and development of the key sites in the area including the former brickworks site.
The site was a brickworks between the late 1800s and the early 2000s. When clay reserves were eventually exhausted, backfilling of the quarry pits started in 2002. The site was remediated then subsequently sold in 2014. The new owners requested a planning scheme amendment to rezone the land to facilitate the redevelopment of the former quarry and brickworks site primarily for residential purposes with scope for a small component of commercial floor area at the corner of Station Street and Norcal Road.
Amendment C155 was approved on 10 March 2016. The amendment rezoned the site from the Industrial 1 Zone to part Residential Growth Zone Schedule 2 and part Mixed Use Zone, and applied a Development Plan Overlay.
A Development Plan is required under the new planning controls to progress development of the site. The Development Plan is proposed in two stages:
A Draft Development Plan has been prepared for Stage One. The main features of the Stage One Draft Development Plan are as follows:
If approved, the Draft Development Plan for Stage One will guide future planning permit applications for the development and assessment of those applications. The Development Plan will enable future planning applications that are consistent with an approved Development Plan and the planning controls to be considered without advertising to the community.
Please note that the Draft Development Plan is concurrently under review at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (P322/2017) to determine if the contents satisfy the requirements for the Development Plan Overlay.
