The Urban Development Program (UDP) pipeline closely mirrors the statutory planning process.
As part of the data collection, a process of verification was conducted through consultation with council. This included identifying constraints to development and providing insights into the potential retail lot yield.
Urban Development Pipeline
This development pipeline is split into two categories, englobo greenfield supply and retail lot supply.
The two stages in the englobo greenfield supply category are:
1. Unzoned englobo land requiring a Precinct Structure Plan
This is englobo land that has been identified for future residential development by council through the Planning Policy Framework, an adopted housing and settlement strategy, etc. In some locations it is currently zoned Urban Growth Zone and will go through a precinct structure planning process. In other locations it is zoned as a non-urban use such Farm Zone. The UDP provides an estimate of the potential retail lot yield within a precinct.
2. Zoned englobo land
This is englobo land that is zoned and available for subdivision into retail lots. The UDP provides an estimate of the potential retail lot yield. The final lot yield that will be delivered is subject to council planning approval processes.
The two stages in the retail lot supply category are:
1. Proposed lots
This is land that has been included as “proposed” within the Vicmap Property dataset. Some changes to these lots may occur before they receive a title. The data is sourced from VicMap.
2. Lots with a title
This is land that has been registered, provided with a title and ready for dwellings to be built. The data is sourced from VicMap.
Retail lot yield
For unzoned and zoned englobo land a retail lot yield is calculated using existing structure plans or the density of recent nearby development.
The residential zones considered in the UDP are:
- Neighbourhood Residential Zone
- General Residential Zone
- Residential Growth Zone
- Urban Growth Zone
Unzoned includes a range of zones earmarked for future development.
Major infill was identified as land within the established area of a settlement that is greater than 1 ha in area. These are often remnant greenfield land. They have been identified in consultation with council.
