Following advice from the Department of Transport (formerly known as VicRoads), Xavier College has prepared an amended Development Plan for Council’s consideration. 

The amended Development Plan incorporates a number of revisions intended to address issues raised in submissions and advice received from the Department of Transport. The amendments to the Development Plan include:

  • Signalised intersection deleted and replaced with a widened crossover to Barkers Road. Right turns out of the site will be banned between 8am to 9.30am, and 2.30pm to 6pm – consistent with the 40km school zones. Right turns out by busses will be excepted at all times.
  • Retention of additional trees along the west side of the driveway accessed from Barkers Road (only 3 trees removed compared to 7 trees removed).
  • Additional wording for the protection of the significant tree to be retained to the south of the Chapel Oval (Tree 321) in response to arborist comments.
  • Inclusion of change rooms and spectators shelter to the north of Plunket Oval to be constructed into the existing embankment. This is carried over from the 2006 Development Plan.

If you feel you are affected by this proposed Development Plan, you can make a submission for Council’s consideration. Submissions should be made to Council by Friday 5 November 2021. Council must make available for inspection a copy of every submission free of charge during office hours.

If you decide the amended Development Plan addresses all of your previous concerns, you may withdraw your submission by informing Council in writing.
