Greater Shepparton City Council has prepared Amendment C211 to the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme.
The land affected by the Amendment includes the following:
- the existing Shepparton Sports Stadium;
- the proposed site for the Munarra Centre for Regional Excellence;
- the Rumbalara Football and Netball Club; and
- associated areas for drainage infrastructure.
Amendment C211 proposes to insert a new Incorporated Document titled Munarra Centre for Regional Excellence and Shepparton Sports and Events Centre, October 2018 in the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme. Further, the Amendment will introduce a Specific Controls Overlay on the land to guide the proposed development.
The Amendment is required to expedite the delivery of the new Munarra Centre for Regional Excellence (Munarra) and the Shepparton Sports and Events Centre (the SSEC). Munarra has received state government funding, which is linked to key milestones and specific timeframes for the delivery of the project. This Amendment will facilitate the timely delivery of the Munarra project.
The integrated facilities offered by Munarra and the SSEC will enable significantly expanded capacity to host major sporting, educational and cultural events, which will increase tourist visitation to the Shepparton area and would provide enhanced community infrastructure
Amongst other benefits to the region, the Amendment is expected to create over 80 direct and 300 indirect construction jobs and further ongoing jobs when complete.
