Amendment C163 - Implementation of Healesville Structure Plan

Current status: Council considering submissions

Exhibition of the amendment has now closed. Council considered the submissions at its meeting on 11 September 2018 and resolved to defer consideration until its meeting on 9 October 2018.

Amendment C163 implements a number of actions from the Healesville Structure Plan, which was adopted by Council in August 2016. It will:

  • Introduce a Local Planning Policy for the Healesville district;
  • Rezone some land from Commercial 2 Zone to Commercial 1 Zone;
  • Apply an Environmental Audit Overlay to some land which is potentially contaminated;
  • Rezone some land from Industrial 1 Zone to Neighbourhood Residential Zone (NRZ2) and also apply a Design and Development Overlay (DDO6) and Significant Landscape Overly (SLO22) to this land;
  • Rezone a small parcel of land adjacent to the Hunter Road industrial area from Public Use Zone (PUZ4) to Industrial 1 Zone;
  • Rezone some land in public ownership in the Healesville district to correctly reflect its current use/s.

Why the changes?

The purpose of the Healesville Structure Plan is to establish a framework for future land use, development and urban design in the Healesville district, with a focus on the Healesville town centre. View the Healesville Structure Plan and background information.

Healesville is valued by residents and visitors as a rural township in a natural setting with thriving community and business activities. The introduction of a Local Planning Policy for Healesville will support the maintenance of these valued attributes.

The Amendment also makes some adjustments to zones and overlays to manage future uses, reflect current uses and activities and apply environmental protection measures.

The changes will support positive planning outcomes that have a net community benefit for Healesville.
