Opportunities for Change

The areas coloured in light and dark blue in the Draft Spatial Vision for the City represent the five precincts identified by Council to have potential for significant change. Desired outcomes have been drafted for each of these precincts and are included alongside the Spatial Vision.

In order to investigate how the outcomes within the Spatial Vision might manifest on the ground, the next stage is to commence a structure planning exercise for each of these precincts.

Structure Plans

Structure Plans will display more detail as to how we (as Council and community) want the City to grow and develop in the future. The intention is to develop these structure plans together with selected key stakeholders beginning with a series of design workshops.

These design workshops were held from Monday 16 October 2017 to Thursday 19 October 2017 (inclusive) and each involved approximately 20 stakeholders from the community, Elected Member group, residents groups, landowners, investors and the State Government.

What is a Structure Plan?

A structure plan provides Council with a clear direction in relation to the types of land uses and physical development that it wishes to see occur within areas identified for significant change across the City.

In their final form, the structure plans will help to inform the development of planning policies within the Planning and Design Code and determine how they are applied across the City of Mitcham.

Examples of structure plans can be viewed in the State Government’s Inner Metro Rim Structure Plan

Have Your Say

The October workshops provided an initial opportunity for select stakeholders to engage in a deliberative exercise to help produce draft structure plans that will form the basis of extensive community engagement to occur in early 2018.
