Growth Precincts Development Plan Amendment 

Council has now received approval from the Minister for Planning to proceed with the Growth Precincts Development Plan Amendment (DPA).  The Minister, however, has removed the Flinders & St Marys Precinct and the South Road Corridor from the proposed scope of the DPA. 

Council will now commence the DPA process for the remaining four growth precincts -

  • Goodwood and Daws Roads;
  • Belair Centre;
  • Goodwood and Cross Roads; and
  • Blackwood.

Community engagement on proposed changes within the draft DPA will be undertaken later this year.  Further updates on this will be provided on Council's website.

Next Stage - Key Growth Precincts

The next stage of the project focusses on the identified key precincts (ie the blue areas on the Spatial Vision map). 

At its meeting of 26 February 2019, Council endorsed a Statement of Intent (SOI) for a Growth Precincts Development Plan Amendment (DPA).  A copy of the report and attachments can be found here.

The Growth Precincts DPA SOI has now been lodged with the State Government and we are currently awaiting a response.

Concluding Phase One - Developing a Spatial Vision for the City and Key Precinct Structure Plans

The first phase of the project to develop a Spatial Vision for the City and Key Precinct Structure Plans has now concluded. 

Feedback from the community in the "Shape Your Place" consultation was considered, and the plans amended in response.  Council endorsed the amended plans on 26 February 2018.  A copy of the report and attachments can be found here

These amended plans will form Council's basis for negotiation with the State Government and will inform the next phases of the project.  This includes negotiation with the State Government as to how zoning changes might occur within the City of Mitcham as we transition from the Development Plan to the new Planning and Design Code.

The way to commence this negotiation is the submission of a Statement of Intent (SOI).  The SOI is a formal agreement between Council and the Minister for Planning regarding the matters to be undertaken when changing the Development Plan. 

Thank you for your feedback!

The Shape Your Place! community engagement has now concluded.  Your feedback is helping us to understand what you want the future of our Council area to be. This, in turn, will help us negotiate with the State Government on how the new Planning and Design Code will be applied to our Council area.

The draft Shape Your Place! Community Engagement Summary Report provides an overview of the community engagement, including your feedback.  The draft Engagement Summary Report will be presented to Full Council on Tuesday, 11 December 2018 - a copy of the report to Council can be found here.
