Millers Homestead in Boronia

Amendment C171 – Rezone part of 30 Dorrigo Drive, Boronia (Millers Homestead)

The Planning Scheme Amendment

Council at its meeting on 25 June 2018, resolved that its facility at 30 Dorrigo Drive, Boronia (Millers Homestead) is surplus to its requirements and can be sold. The land currently has two zones under the Knox Planning Scheme: Public Park Recreation Zone (PPRZ) and Neighbourhood Residential Zone – Schedule 1 (NRZ1). In order to sell the land, the land needs to be rezoned to reflect its future private ownership.

Council has also resolved to start the process to rezone that part of the land that is affected by the PPRZ to the NRZ1. The rezoning will ensure consistent zoning with the adjoining residential land. All surrounding properties are located in NRZ1.

The existing Environmental Significance Overlay Schedule 3 (ESO3), Significant Landscape Overlay Schedule 3 (SLO3) and the Design and Development Overlay Schedule 2 (DDO2) will be retained on the site and are not proposed to be changed.

The existing Heritage Overlay (HO25) will also be retained, however minor changes will be made to the HO25 to make sure the heritage information is up-to-date and reflects the heritage values of the land.

What happens next

If the Minister for Planning authorises Council to prepare Amendment C171, it will be placed on public exhibition for a minimum of one calendar month. A further Council report will consider any submissions received during exhibition.

If Amendment C171 is ultimately approved by the Minster for Planning, Council will seek to implement an Agreement on the title (known as a Section 173 Agreement) to restrict future subdivision of the land, restrict future land use to a single dwelling and ensure the retention of the external facade of the building.
