Planning Scheme Amendment on Collison Estate

Picture: Supplied

Casey Council is inviting the community to provide feedback on a new Planning Scheme Amendment (C286case) for Collison Estate in Cranbourne East.

In 2022, Council placed the draft Collison Estate Development Plan (DP) and Develop Contributions Plan (DCP) on preliminary community consultation.

Council advanced the project with changes made to the DP and DCP based on submissions.

At this stage, council is seeking submissions on thechanges.

The proposed DP envisions a residential development consisting of approximately 1700 dwellings with a local neighbourhood activity centre (NAC) and community facility.

The amendment rezoned the planned NAC at 1 Heather Grove from General Residential to Commercial 1.

The Preliminary Site Investigation report has been updated and now identifies two additional properties in Collison Estate with potential site contamination requiring further investigation.

A total of three such sites have been identified in the precinct.

Planning Scheme Amendment C286case will be on public exhibition until midnight Thursday 11 January 2024.
