4 Apr 2016
Well Governed Council

Manningham Council is seeking comments from the community on its proposal to rezone the front portion of the vacant Council owned land at 383-395 Manningham Road in Doncaster.

The rear portion of this land is the Manningham Centre Association’s (MCA) Melaleuca Lodge, a low care aged care facility that is set back an estimated 65 metres from the front boundary of Manningham Road.

The proposal, known as Amendment C111 to the Manningham Planning Scheme, is currently on public exhibition. The proposal aims to:

  • Rezone the land from a Public Use Zone – Health and Community (PUZ3) to a Residential Growth Zone – Schedule 2 (RGZ2), and
  • Apply the Design and Development Overlay (DDO8-1 Main Road Sub-Precinct) to the land to guide what could be built on this land.

At the same time as the amendment process, an application for planning permit has been made to subdivide the land into two allotments. The new front lot is proposed to be 2,440 square metres in size and will be sold for residential development through an Expression of Interest process.

Any person who may be affected by the amendment or the planning permit may make a submission. All submissions must be in writing and can be made:

  • Online at
  • By mail to the Manager Economic and Environmental Planning, Manningham City Council, PO Box 1, Doncaster, Victoria 3108

Submissions close on Friday 20 May 2016.
