I am writing to notify your organisation of proposed changes to the residential planning zones in the City of Melbourne and to encourage you to make a submission to the Standing Advisory Committee for their consideration.
The proposed new residential zones in the Melbourne Planning Scheme
The City of Melbourne has drafted a planning scheme amendment to guide the introduction of the new residential zones.
From 4 August to 29 August 2014 you can review and comment on the draft amendment.
The proposed zoning is based on the community’s earlier feedback in March and April 2014.
These changes only relate to residentially zoned areas in the City of Melbourne, covering parts of Kensington, Parkville, Carlton, South Yarra, North, East and West Melbourne, Jolimont and Southbank.
Information about the proposed changes can be viewed here: http://melbourne.vic.gov.au/participate/reszones.
Questions about these zones can be directed to Dianna Siomos, Strategic Planner at the City of Melbourne on 03 9658 8404 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
