609 - 621 Burwood Highway, Knoxfield

The State Government has announced a rezoning for land at 609-621 Burwood Highway in Knoxfield. The Minister for Planning approved Amendment C160, which was gazetted on 8 November 2018, and changed the planning provisions for land on the north-west corner of Burwood Highway and Scoresby Road. The area earmarked for future development is also within the Knox Central Activity Centre boundary.

The land has been identified as surplus to Victorian Government requirements and will be developed by Development Victoria for residential, commercial and retail uses.

In order to facilitate this development, the Minister for Planning has applied a new Comprehensive Development Zone (CDZ) and associated Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) to the site. The previous zone for the site was a Public Use Zone – Other (PUZ7). The Minister for Planning has also varied the location of the existing Environmental Significance Overlay (Schedule 2) and Land Subject to Inundation Overlay that currently apply on the site.

Any future planning permit application for the development of the site must be undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the CDZ and CDP and other planning controls that apply to the site.

Further information on the planning controls for the site is available on the State Government website.

The Minster for Planning is the Responsible Authority for the Amendment (known as C160). The Amendment documentation and contact details are available on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website found via this link.
