Echelon Planning engaged to prepare the Amess Road Precinct Structure Plan

The character of Riddells Creek is largely defined by a vegetated landscape, incised creek valleys and rolling topography set against the magnificent backdrop of the Macedon Ranges. The Riddells Creek township has historically been concentrated along Main Street but has in more recent years expanded east of Racecourse Road along the railway. The township is characterised by its historic country village with leafy tree-lined streets. The 2013 Riddells Creek Structure Plan designated the Amess Road precinct as a priority residential development area. Following this designation, the Minister for Planning approved Amendment C100 to the Macedon Ranges Planning Scheme which rezoned the land north of Amess Road to Urban Growth Zone and applied the Part A Schedule. A Precinct Structure Plan is required to facilitate development.

Echelon have been engaged by a key landowner to prepare a Structure Plan, Development Contributions Plan and associated Planning Scheme Amendment documentation for this important growth area in Riddell’s Creek. This is being undertaken in collaboration with the Macedon Ranges Shire and builds on work undertaken over the past few years. The Amess Road PSP area will create an attractive extension to the existing Riddells Creek township, providing long term residential growth for Macedon Ranges Shire and will complement the existing economic and community heart of the township.
