Manningham Planning Scheme



Shown on the planning scheme map as SLO8




.0 Statement of nature and key elements of landscape

The Mullum Valley Estate is bounded by the Mullum Mullum Creek to the east, Old Warrandyte Road to the north, Berrima Road and Yileen Court to the south and Illawong Drive to the west.

Exotic species such as garden plantings and remnant orchard plantings remain on the site along with Victorian and Australian native vegetation. Vegetation on the site is visually significant, giving the Estate a distinct landscape character.

The topography is undulating and contains steep slopes in the north west and south east. This presents a challenge for future development in responding to the slope.

The Mullum Mullum Creek which retains significant native vegetation along its banks and represents an important habitat corridor for the municipality and region as a whole. The Estate adjoins a large area of public open space known as the Mullum Mullum Creek Linear Park.

Future development needs to respond to and enhance the landscape and environmental values.



.0 Landscape character objective to be achieved

To respond to the area’s landscape and environmental characteristics, including topography, vegetation and waterways.

To avoid and minimise the removal of vegetation and provide for appropriate replanting.

To respect the interface between private land and the Mullum Mullum Creek environs.

To promote establishment of vegetation, particularly that which is indigenous to the area.

To minimise site run-off and soil erosion to maintain water quality.
