YOUR CITY'S PLAN FOR A NEW, VIBRANT, MIXED-USE LOCAL ACTIVITY CENTRE

Council is working with the community to develop a vision for future development in the Oakover Village.

The area has a history of unique industrial uses that are no longer in place. Furthermore, the surrounding area is a mix of older and more recent housing, social housing and vacant land which provides opportunities for revisioning of the area.

The area has excellent existing attributes such as:
- proximity to train and tram;
- local and regional parks;
- local primary school and private College; and
- nearby Darebin Arts

The recent approval of Planning Scheme Amendment C136 in September 2016 resulted in application of the Development Plan Overlay Schedule 11 (DPO11 – Oakover Precinct, West Preston) to the area.

DPO11 applies to the majority of land generally bound by Oakover Road to the south, Austral Avenue to the west, Railway Place to the east and a variable boundary to the north.

Council is now preparing preliminary plans based on the provisions and requirements of DPO11. Once these draft plans have been developed, they will form the basis for further community consultation for the precinct.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
