The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is developing the Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) for the Officer South Employment precinct, in Melbourne’s south-east growth corridor. This outlines the layout of roads, shopping centres, public transport corridors and other key infrastructure for new communities.

As part of the VPA’s process, Melbourne Water prepares concept drainage strategies for future urban development, called Development Services Schemes (DSSs). These identify the drainage infrastructure and stormwater treatment assets needed so that new developments meet current standards for flood protection, water quality, waterway health and amenity. They also determine the financial contribution developers pay us in order to fund this infrastructure.

Within the Officer South Employment PSP area, there are currently two draft DSSs (though this number is subject to change). The DSSs are:

  • Officer South 1304
  • Lower Gum Scrub Creek 1402

They ultimately drain to the Koo Wee Rup-Longwarry Flood Protection District.
