Planning Minister Approves Major Activity Centre in Epping

PlanningMinister-RichardWynne

Planning Minister Richard Wynne

As was reported in The Age last week, in his most significant major approvals since taking office, Planning Minister Richard Wynne has signed off on five new “activity centres” in middle and outer Melbourne, in a bid to generate more jobs and higher-density residential development.

The new activity centres signed off by the government are in Epping, Cranbourne, Werribee, Moorabbin and Footscray.

The new zoning for the areas is designed to attract businesses and residential developers to the areas by specifying where certain types of projects are wanted.

Mr Wynne said the rezoning would “unlock both investment and jobs”, and said the Epping Central activity centre he had approved would serve a booming population in the city’s north.

His approval of the new centre would, he said, “provide guidance to investors on what form of development is suitable” in specific areas.

Whittlesea Council, which is responsible for the new Epping activity centre, says the approval will pave the way for the creation of hundreds of local jobs.

The council has 11 major sites that developers have been waiting to get approval for projects.

Whittlesea mayor Ricky Kirkham said there was a “myriad of investment opportunities” in Epping, but that the area was still a mystery to many.

“Many people don’t realise that Epping is closer to the Melbourne CBD than Ringwood,” he said.
