Significant changes to the residential zoning has been legislated by the State Government and since March this year we have been making submissions to and involved in discussions with the City of Melbourne about how these zones should be applied in South Yarra. Our particular concern has been to ensure that the heritage streets are protected by the strictest zone which is Neighbourhood Residential.
What the outcome will be is dependent upon a report from the Residential Zones Standing Advisory Committee to the Planning Minister and our written submission to that Committee is on this website.
In addition verbal submissions were made to the Committee last Friday 19 September and most of the day was occupied with submissions concerning South Yarra.
It is unlikely that we will know the outcome for some time as the Committee has 20 days to lodge its report and recommendations with the Minister for Planning and the Minister then has to make the decision.
