Create a mix of housing
We are continuing to set a maximum number of homes that can be built in growth areas. Referred to as a housing density cap, this will ensure that the needs of the future residents are well balanced with the infrastructure and services to be provided.
Our planning for Vineyard is based on a future population of approximately 7,000 people. Infrastructure including the new road network, land for drainage, the proposed primary school and f water, sewer and electricity services has been planned to meet the needs of future residents.
This approach is being applied to other areas of the North West Growth Area to ensure that communities have access to the right infrastructure and services. Slabs will be laid for new homes from around 12 months after rezoning.
Plan for a proposed primary school and village centre
The village centre is conveniently located, providing easy access to the proposed primary school. A village centre including a supermarket and some community facilities is planned to meet the local shopping needs of future residents.
Improve connections by extending the road network
Access to shops, schools, parks and services will be enabled by the new road network which will make it easier for local people to get around. The road network has been designed to help provide safe streets for residents, cycling and walking paths, and provide direct access to the village centre.
Provide more public transport options
The local road network has been designed to enable bus services that will connect people to surrounding suburbs and areas of employment, as well as to local open spaces and shops. Pedestrian and cyclist facilities will be constructed along road corridors and the open space corridor to provide ready access across and along the Killarney Chain of Ponds, into the residential areas.
Provide open spaces and parks
More than 27 hectares of land will be set aside for open space for the new community. This includes parks and paths around waterways, as well as places for organised sport, including four sports ovals. The Killarney Chain of Ponds will be connected to neighbourhood residential areas through a network of pedestrian and cycle linkages along streets and public spaces. Bringing this central green spine into public ownership will allow for its rehabilitation and tree planting, providing a unique asset to people who be living within this precinct.
Protect the environment and heritage
Our Plan considers and responds to the local landscape through its preservation of local and distant views, and protection of creeks and significant vegetation. Green spaces will be integrated with new homes with landscaping and tree planting along streets and in public domain areas, and with protected remnant stands of vegetation, for local residents to enjoy.
Manage the risk of flooding
Our planning has considered the types of land uses that could be supported on land prone to flooding, in order to promote safety and provide safe evacuation in case of a flood.
Low density residential development is supported between the 1 in 100 year-flood level and Probable Maximum Flood extents. This will allow for the reasonable development of these lands whilst addressing flood evacuation requirements.

Landowner workshops June 2014
Landowner workshops held in June 2014 provided an update of the work completed to date and were an important opportunity for the Department to hear from local people about what they want the area to look like in the future. For more information, refer to The Presentation, Discussion Paper and workshop feedback.
Landowner Information Session November 2013
Two information sessions were held in November for landowners in the precinct. The sessions were an opportunity for landowners to better understand the Precinct Planning process, meet the staff and ask questions. A copy of the presentation is available.
