Wurruk Growth Area

In May 2016, Council received a request to rezone land within the Wurruk Growth Area. The subject land is identified for residential development within the Sale, Wurruk and Longford Structure Plan (2010). The Structure Plan advocates for the creation of well designed, complete neighbourhoods that are integrated with the existing adjoining residential areas and local facilities in Wurruk.



The process to rezone the Wurruk Growth Area has now commenced. The focus of the amendment is to:

  • Rezone land which is not flood prone to General Residential Zone - Schedule 1 (normal density lots) and Low Density Residential Zone (minimum subdivision size 2,000 m2- if reticulated sewerage is available otherwise minimum subdivision size of 4,000 m2), as identified in the Sale, Wurruk and Longford Structure Plan (2010).
  • Rezone the flood prone area to the South and Kilmany Park Estate to the Rural Activity Zone. The Rural Activity Zone will, amongst other things, also better reflect the existing use of Kilmany Park as a residence, bed and breakfast and conference centre.
  • Apply the Land Subject to Inundation Overlay and Flood Overlay to flood prone areas within the Planning Scheme Amendment area, based on the most up-to-date data provided by the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority.
  • Reduce the extent of the existing Heritage Overlay, which applies to Kilmany Park Estate, and update the associated Heritage Citation and relevant Clauses within the Wellington Planning Scheme based on the advice of Council’s Heritage Advisor.
  • Apply the Development Plan Overlay – Schedule 9 to the subject land excluding Kilmany Park Estate.

The specific implications and other details concerning this amendment can be found in the fact sheet and rezoning request from the proponent below.
