A Construction and Site Management Plan (CSMP) is a condition of a planning permit. This condition is usually applied to large or difficult to build developments.
CSMPs are necessary to ensure construction sites, including demolition and excavation, do not adversely affect health, safety, amenity, traffic or the environment in the surrounding area. It must also address broader obligations such as recycling, waste management and environmental initiatives. A CSMP must fully consider and address each stage of construction, including demolition, excavation and construction.
The objective of a CSMP is to plan ahead for each phase of construction, minimising the impact on:
- neighbours and nearby residents
- businesses and public venues (e.g. Melbourne Showgrounds and Flemington Racecourse)
- users of public footpaths, roads, bike paths and reserves
- traffic flow within the surrounding street network
- public parking within the vicinity of the site
- the environment and local waterways
- trees on and surrounding a development site
A permit holder (responsible builder or developer) should first check the planning permit to determine if the proposed development meets a condition or conditions which require a CSMP to be submitted to us for approval.
CSMP Guidelines and Template
Where a CSMP is required, please use the Moonee Valley City Council CSMP Guidelines in conjunction with the CSMP Template to help you prepare a satisfactory CSMP:
Moonee Valley City Council CSMP Guidelines
Moonee Valley City Council CSMP Template
Please ensure all details are provided in your CSMP submission and that they are clear and concise. Where additional information is required or is not adequate, we may request further detail and a resubmission. A fee of $250 will be applied for each CSMP resubmission for review and assessment.
Please note, where our CSMP Template is not used to develop a CSMP, submissions must address all matters for consideration to Council’s satisfaction.
Where construction commences without an endorsed CSMP in place, significant Penalty Infringement Notices will apply and works will be ordered to cease.
