Have your say on proposed Amendment C235 rezoning 145 Rossiter Road Koo Wee Rup

  • The Koo Wee Rup Township Strategy (October 2015) identified the land located at 145 Rossiter Road, Koo Wee Rup (known as Lot 2) as a potential residential development site.
  • Council received a request to rezone the land from Farming Zone to Neighbourhood Residential Zone Schedule 1 (NRZ1). At the Council Meeting on 10 December 2019, Council resolved to rezone this land.
  • We invite you to give feedback on the proposal.


The proposed Amendment also applies a Development Plan Overlay which facilitates development and guides future land uses on the site. Development Plan Overlay Schedule 22 provides guidance on the location of internal road networks, subdivision layout, staging, open space locations, environment and landscaping, traffic and transport, infrastructure and drainage and urban design and character.

The amendment also corrects the mapping for a heritage property named 'Shepton Mallet' known as HO198 in the Cardinia Planning Scheme's Heritage Overlay.

The proposed Amendment will facilitate the following development components on the site:

  • Provide approximately 200 residential lots
  • Provide open space of approximately 1.95ha provided by two parks at varying sizes and contains either remnant vegetation or aboriginal cultural heritage site.
  • Protect the Southern Brown Bandicoot corridors.
  • Provide a retarding basin and constructed wetland.
  • Provide a Tree Protection Reserve along Rossiter Road with shared pathways that connects the development to the town centre.
