Echuca West Precinct Structure Plan


Public exhibition of Amendment C117camp has now closed.

The amendment incorporates the:

  • Echuca West Precinct Structure Plan, adopted by Council in September 2020
  • Echuca West Contributions Plan
  • Native Vegetation Precinct Plan

into the Campaspe Planning Scheme. It introduces the Urban Growth Zone Schedule 1 and the Development Contributions Overlay Schedule 1, to allow development of the precinct.

The amendment, once finalised, will unlock the next 40 years of residential land supply for Echuca, providing 5,000 new dwellings and a new community of 14,000 residents.

Where is it?

The plan comprises of 615 hectares of developable land and is bounded by:

  • Murray Valley Highway to the north
  • Northern Highway to the east
  • Echuca West School Road to the south, and
  • Stratton Road to the west.

Why do we need it?

The Echuca West Precinct Structure Plan will guide the future development of the precinct and includes a high-level Structure Plan showing the location of major infrastructure items including drainage, open space and traffic items. It will integrate existing local convenience centre, schools and community facilities.
