Background to the DPO Schedule 1

Schedule 1 to the DPO applies to land in the General Residential Zone located in the southwest area of the Castlemaine urban area. This includes some land to the north of Maldon Road, as well as land bound by Maldon Road to the north, Monaghan Street to the south, Ireland Street to the west and the eastern boundary of 16 Monaghan Street to the east.
The DPO1 was applied to the land as part of the new format Mount Alexander Planning Scheme in 1999. The Development Plan Overlay Review (2009) recommended the retention of the DPO1 to this land. Amendment C046 to the Mount Alexander Planning Scheme introduced some changes to the DPO1, including a requirement that the road network design be consistent with that detailed in the adopted Diamond Gully Structure Plan.


The proposed Development Plan has been assessed against the criteria detailed in the Schedule 1 to DPO and is considered to be generally in accordance with the requirements of the schedule. Some minor changes to the proposed development plan may still occur dependent on requirements regarding traffic safety and drainage infrastructure.
