Update: July 2018 

Defence Site Maribyrnong (DSM) is a 127.8 hectare parcel of Commonwealth-owned land located at 2 Cordite Avenue, Maribyrnong.

DSM is strategically located less than 10km from the Melbourne CBD, with 3km of river frontage and adjacent to the Highpoint Activity Centre.

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is responsible for leading the preparation of a planning framework for DSM, which will determine the appropriate land use pattern and infrastructure required to service this new community.

The VPA is working with Maribyrnong City Council and the Australian Government Department of Defence on the project in line with the Statement of Policy Intent.

The statement was developed on behalf of the Victorian Government by the VPA and in collaboration with Maribyrnong City Council, Transport for Victoria and other State and local government partners.

It sets out the DSM policy context, defines the Victorian Government's high level expectations for future development and the approach to be taken to establish a planning framework.

The Statement of Policy Intent reflects current Victorian Government policy based on the 2010 Maribyrnong Shared Vision.

Please refer to the Victorian Planning Authority webpage for further details.
