Project overview:

Preparation of the Casterton Structure Plan commenced in March 2017.

The purpose of the Structure Plan is to coordinate land use, urban design and development planning for the town centre and surrounding residential and agricultural land. To achieve this, the plan provides the strategic basis for public realm improvements, planning scheme directions (zones and overlays) and other non-statutory objectives and actions.

The Structure Plan was conducted over five stages. Casterton residents, landowners and stakeholders have participated in the development and review of the plan. Survey forms were distributed to gather feedback as the study progressed. ‘My place’ consultation sessions were held in May and November 2017.

The draft plan was exhibited in December 2017.

Final plan:

The Casterton Structure Plan provides a strategic framework to support appropriate growth and development in Casterton. It sets out a suite of themed directions focused on six areas:

  • Land use
  • Streetscape and Urban Design
  • Housing
  • Recreation and Open Space
  • Movement Network
  • Tourism Infrastructure

The key strategic directions of the plan include:

  • Urban Design Guidelines for the town centre and Jackson / McPherson Street precinct to direct future development & streetscape improvements
  • Design concept for a ‘village square’ to activate the former railway precinct
  • Improved pedestrian links and movement networks
  • An enhanced Kelpie Trail experience
  • Preconditions for industrial land expansion and heavy vehicle service centre
  • Promoting infill development and compact housing in appropriate locations
  • Local policy content for insertion into the Glenelg Planning Scheme to inform future development planning through new zones (MUZ, UFZ) and an overlay (DDO).

The copy of the final plan can be found in the document library on this page.
