Private Plan Change 52 (“Private Plan Change 52”) seeks to rezone the site at 20 Stroma Way in Mount Marua from Rural Hill Zone to Rural Lifestyle Zone. The site is subject to the Southern Hills Overlay Area.

The proposed Rural Lifestyle Zone would provide for residential development at a rural lifestyle density level. To address the Southern Hills Overlay Area the Plan Change also proposes the introduction of a Structure Plan for the site.

The Structure Plan:

  • Provides details regarding the intended form and layout of the envisaged subdivision;
  • Contains a Landscape Masterplan that identifies areas of vegetation retention and future regeneration; and
  • Introduces three sets of site specific principles that need to be considered at subdivision stage, relating to Earthworks and Sediment Control, Landscape and Visual Impact and Stormwater and Natural Hazards.
