Planning applications for 621 Burwood Highway

Council has received three planning applications from Development Victoria for the former Department of Primary Industries site located on the north-western corner of Burwood Highway and Scoresby Road, Knoxfield.

The applications propose:

  • a two stage subdivision
  • utility installation (wetlands)
  • site access
  • associated works and vegetation removal.

The applications are currently at preliminary assessment stage. Once this has been completed, Council will update this webpage with the next steps in the process – including any advertising requirements.

The rezoning and development of this land is covered by Amendment C160.

More information on the project can be found on the Development Victoria website.

This application (P/2021/6169) proposes the first two stages of the subdivision of the site.
