Old Reynella Former Winery Site - Development Plan Amendment

We are proposing to change the zoning to parts of the Old Reynella former winery site, historically known as the Hardy’s Winery site and more recently the headquarters for Accolade Wines Australia.

The current owners of the site, Tarac Properties Pty Ltd (Tarac), approached council in 2016 to undertake an Externally Funded Development Plan Amendment (DPA) to rezone the site to allow for a wider range of activities than currently occur.

The single ownership of such a large and important site provides a significant opportunity to rezone the site to enable considered and coordinated redevelopment of the land.

The rezoning will encourage the following outcomes:

  • master planning a diversity of housing types
  • protecting and re-using the heritage of the site (including improving public accessibility)
  • preserving areas of the site as green space and making that green space publicly accessible
  • a wide range of employment generating activities

These changes can only occur through a Development Plan Amendment (DPA) process, as set out in the Development Act 1993. The state government has a Guide to Development Plan Amendments to help you understand the process.

As part of the process, we are seeking feedback from the community on the proposed DPA. To leave feedback, please complete the submission form below by 29 October 2019. Or, download a submission form from the document library.
