The Development Plan has now been finalised but has yet to be adopted by the Council. To ensure the desired development outcomes can be properly funded following changes introduced by the Minister for Planning, a new Development Contributions Plan (DCP4) is now being prepared for Nichols Point and the project is on hold until this process is completed.

Following preparation of DCP4, authorisation will be requested from the Minister for Planning to prepare Amendment C97 and include the new DCP with Schedule 4 into the Mildura Planning Scheme.

Following gazettal of Amendment C97, the Nichols Point Development Plan including any necessary changes will be put to Council for final adoption.


Council is working on a Residential Development Plan for Nichols Point. 

The purpose of the plan will be to set out the future policies and direction for the pattern of residential development and infrastructure requirements in Nichols Point and the surrounding area. 

The Plan will show where future residential areas, roads, pathways, parks, wetlands and physical infrastructure will be located.
