The Lilydale Quarry Comprehensive Development Plan (the Plan) (PDF) guides the sustainable staged development of 143 hectares of the former quarry site over the next 20 years.

The Lilydale Quarry site is located on the southern edge of the Lilydale Activity Centre and interfaces educational, industrial, open space and residential areas. The land is bounded by Mooroolbark Road to the west, Maroondah Highway and Melba Avenue to the north, Hull Road to the south and residential neighbourhoods to the east and south east.

The Plan identifies the location of approximately 3,000 future homes and the infrastructure needed to support the growing community such as roads and community facilities. It also outlines commercial land for employment and retail. This will provide certainty to the Lilydale community about what changes to expect on the former quarry site over the next 20 years.

The future site will build on Lilydale’s local character and celebrate its heritage from the Wurundjeri Traditional Owners through to its industrial use as a former limestone quarry.

Draft Amendment C193yran to the Yarra Range Planning Scheme

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) has prepared draft Amendment C193yran to the Yarra Ranges Planning Scheme for a Comprehensive Development Plan to rezone the land to a Comprehensive Development Zone to enable future decisions about the development of the site. The Plan identifies four precincts for housing and mixed use development.

You can explore these precincts using the interactive framework plan below.
