Precinct Structure Plans

The City of Melton is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia.  With a current population of over 200,000 people the City of Melton will grow to over 500,000 people in the next 30 years.  Council works with the Victorian Planning Authority to ensure our City is well planned.  The Victorian Planning Authority prepares Precinct Structure Plans in the City of Melton.

Precinct Structure Plans (PSPs) are high level master plans for whole communities. PSPs layout roads, shopping centre, schools, parks, housing, employment, connections to transport and generally resolve the complex issues of biodiversity, cultural heritage, infrastructure provision and Council charges. PSPs provide guidance on how land will transition from mostly rural and agricultural use to an urban use.

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is the statutory authority responsible for overseeing the preparation of all precinct structure plans in Melbourne's growth areas and advising the Minister for Planning on their approval. The VPA is working in partnership with growth area Councils which includes Melton City Council to complete the planning for Melbourne Growth Areas.
