    We are developing this Master Plan to identify the needs in the Doveton area and ensure the site is fit for purpose.

    This is your opportunity to have your say and influence potential upgrades and improvements to the site by informing Council about what might be lacking, and what could be improved.

    This is an opportunity for Council to receive feedback on what services are in demand and identify gaps that exist within the Doveton community that could be addressed through this site.

    Once the feedback has been collated, Council will develop a Draft Concept Plan based on the comments provided, and then showcase this to the community.

    A Doveton Pool in the Park Master Plan and Concept Plan will eventually be adopted and presented to the community.

    What we need to understand:

    • What types of aquatic, recreational and community programs are needed within or near the DPIP site?
    • What types of facilities are needed within an aquatic and leisure facility?
    • What would support year-round use of the DPIP site?
    • How to celebrate the local identity and the DPIP site’s culture and history?

    Ways to have your say:

    • Meet with Council - Autumn Place Community Hub
      • 10 Oct 2019 (10:30am - 11:30am)
      • 17 Oct 2019 (10:30am - 11:30am)
    • Complete the survey here.
    • Design your site.

    Consultation closes Friday 25 October 2019.

    A New Activity Centres Strategy for Casey

    We are seeking public submissions on the City of Casey’s new draft Activity Centres Strategy 2019 (the Strategy) and the associated planning scheme amendment that will implement it into the Casey Planning Scheme.

    Activity centres are the centres of commercial and community life where people go to work, shop, socialise and fulfil other daily service needs. The Strategy will provide guidance on the growth and development of Casey’s 81 existing and future activity centres. It is built around three key themes:

    • Shopping locally.

    A New Activity Centres Strategy for Casey

    We are seeking public submissions on the City of Casey’s new draft Activity Centres Strategy 2019 (the Strategy) and the associated planning scheme amendment that will implement it into the Casey Planning Scheme.

    Activity centres are the centres of commercial and community life where people go to work, shop, socialise and fulfil other daily service needs. The Strategy will provide guidance on the growth and development of Casey’s 81 existing and future activity centres. It is built around three key themes:

    • Shopping locally.
    • Increasing local jobs, especially higher wage, white-collar job opportunities.
    • Making our activity centres better places to spend time, and more enjoyable.

    Activity centres are generally focused around shopping areas, but also contain employment hubs, and community facilities. They vary in size from large centres such as Fountain Gate Narre Warren CBD and Cranbourne Town Centre to small local strip shopping centres like Linden Place in Doveton. They include shops, community centres, libraries and businesses such as accountants or medical centres.

    The Public Exhibition of the Strategy and C258 Amendments runs from 14 October to 24 December 2019.

    The Casey Activity Centres Strategy is based on extensive public consultation and economic analysis. It brings a new focus on promoting jobs and economic development within Casey’s activity centres by increasing commercial office floor space and streamlining planning processes. Urban design guidance and clear directions for out-of-centre non-residential use and development are also included. These changes will help protect the character of residential neighbourhoods by encouraging most commercial development to locate in or near activity centres. Much of the City of Casey’s potential for employment growth in knowledge-based higher wage businesses lies in the strength and vibrancy of its network of activity centres.
