The Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) is currently refining the designs for the Manchester Road and Maroondah Highway level crossing removals.
The submissions period for the Planning Scheme Amendment (PSA) put forward by LXRP to facilitate the project will be open until early October.
Once the submissions period is closed, LXRP will compile a report on the feedback received, which will be included in the PSA submission to the Minister for Planning.
If approved, the PSA will allow for the construction of the projects to occur without obtaining further planning approvals.
Anyone may make a submission regarding the proposed PSA, as detailed in the Council Report Agenda item dated 24 September.
Notification of the PSA was sent directly to affected owners and occupiers of land by LXRP in early September. Submissions close at 5pm on Monday 14 October 2019.
Details of how to make a submission are available on LXRP website via the link below:
If you experience difficulty making a submission, please contact LXRP directly via the contact details provided at the top right of this page.
As the project proceeds, LXRP proposes further opportunities for input by Council and the community, including information sessions, doorknocking of homes and businesses, meeting with community and business groups and talking to residents one-on-one.
There will be further information sessions, and as the project planning and development progresses LXRP will release design updates with opportunities to talk to LXRP technical experts and provide feedback.
