The Mitcham (City) Development Plan helps to shape the way the City develops and grows.  It contains zones, maps and policies to guide new development and is used by councils when assessing development proposals. A Development Plan Amendment (DPA) is the formal process for making changes to this document.

This DPA seeks to convert key desired land use outcomes from Council’s recently completed Local Area Planning Project – relating to precincts with opportunities for significant growth - into specific Development Plan policy.
