In June 2012 the Minister for Planning released the West Growth Corridor Plans and the Sunbury / Diggers Rest Growth Corridor Plans. These plans set the strategic direction for future urban development of land that was included within the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) as part of its 2010 review.
The Growth Corridor Plans replaces the Growth Area Framework Plans (2006). The Corridor Plans identify areas for housing, employment, transport, town centres, open space and key public infrastructure.
The City of Melton is subject to two Growth Corridor Plans:
- The Sunbury / Diggers Rest Growth Corridor Plan deals with the township of Sunbury, which is located in the City of Hume, and the township of Diggers Rest, which is located within the City of Melton
- The Melbourne West Growth Corridor Plan deals with land located in the City of Wyndham and the City of Melton, and deals with the land located between Caroline Springs and the Melton Township.
The Growth Corridor Plans can be viewed on the Metropolitan Planning Authority website.
