Suburb Planning Review in Woodstock VIC 3751

Woodstock is located in the city of Whittlesea, a semi-rural location to the north of Melbourne’s outer suburbs of the Urban Growth Boundary and logical expansion of the former Woodstock township. Woodstock growth area is 760ha and forms part of the new 1,786ha suburb area (Woodstock and Donnybrook) that is located on either side of Cameron Street. The new suburb is bounded by a possible future high-speed rail investigation area and Outer Metropolitan Ring Reservation (OMR / E6) for future road and rail transport links.

 

Donnybrook-Woodstock Precinct Structure Plan – Location map


The Donnybrook-Woodstock Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) was prepared to guide the redevelopment of the released land for a mix of residential neighbourhoods linked by a variety of local town centres, schools and other community facilities. Protection of natural assets along the Merri Creek and Darebin Creek linear conservation corridors are provided to protect the Growling Grass Frog habitat from the planned suburb.

 

Donnybrook-Woodstock Precinct Structure Plan – Future Urban Structure


The Donnybrook-Woodstock PSP was prepared by Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) in consultation with the Whittlesea City Council and was approved by the Minister for Planning in November 2017. The decision was officially gazetted on 3 November 2017 under Amendment GC28 of the Whittlesea Planning Scheme.

 

The Vision

“Development will have a strong emphasis on the retention of natural features and high quality landscaping in an urban environment supported by strong connections to transport and community facilities. Development of the precinct will create a diverse mix of residential neighbourhoods linked by a variety of local town centres, schools and other community facilities. 

The distribution of local centres which serve a variety of roles and functions will promote self-sufficiency for residents of the precinct in meeting daily retail and convenience shopping needs. Residential and business development will capitalise on the precinct’s proximity to the existing Donnybrook train station, as well as the future Lockerbie Principal Town Centre and potential future Lockerbie Train Station. The development of the existing Donnybrook Cheese Farm into an agricultural, historical and cultural learning hub will provide new residents with connections to the history of the area”.

 

Donnybrook-Woodstock Precinct Structure Plan – Land Use

 

Benefits

The existing zoning will be amended to provide for Rural Conservation and Urban Growth Zones, providing a series of greenfield sites in proximity to natural corridors. The amendments provide a new residential community, protection of natural features, parks, and sports and recreation areas. The Structure Plan also supports new schools, local community hubs, local centres to provide employment and services to the new suburb.

 

Transportation

Woodstock is well connected to public passenger transport, with the Donnybrook train station located to the east outside the new suburb boundary and a future north train station to be built in Lockerbie. The passenger train service connects Melbourne to Sydney and is being considered for a high speed rail project.

The suburb will include a network of shared paths linking the local parks and a new road network. Donnybrook Road and a new future state arterial road will provide access to the Hume Freeway, providing a direct connection to Melbourne CBD or northern Victoria.
