Please Note: Proposal description below describes the amendment. To verify content of the final approved amendment see the Explanatory Report.

The amendment proposes to: Incorporate the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan (Including the Toolern Native Vegetation Precinct Plan) and Toolern Development Contributions Plan into the Scheme. Update the schedule to Clause 81.01 to reflect the incorporation of the three plans. Introduce Schedule 3 (Toolern Precinct Structure Plan) to the Urban Growth Zone (UGZ) to make the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan the primary land use and development document to guide planning in the area. Introduce Schedule 3 (Toolern Development Contributions Plan) to land within the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) area to provide for developer contributions to specific new development and community infrastructure. Make changes to the Local Planning Policy Framework at Clauses 21.03 Planning Visions and Objectives for Melton 21.04 Planning Strategies and Implementation for the Shire 22.01 Residential Land Use Policy 22.05 Employment Policy to update in light of the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan. Provide for public open space contributions for land (excluding employment land) in the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan area when land is subdivided by amending the Schedule to Clause 52.01 to require 9.16% of land or cash payment for Public Open Space. Use the Toolern Native Vegetation Precinct Plan to manage native vegetation in the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan area by listing it in the schedule to Clause 52.16. Delete the Wildfire Management Overlay (WMO) where this applies to land within the PSP area. The removal of the WMO from land within the PSP area is considered appropriate given the rezoning of the land to the UGZ for urban development. The future subdivision of the land for residential purposes will require fire hydrants to be provided in accordance with Clause 56.09-3. Delete Schedule 2 to the Development Plan Overlay (DPO2). Update the schedule to Clause 61.03 to reflect the planning scheme map changes.
