The Minister for Planning has written to the City of Melbourne advising that he has approved Amendment C179 to the Melbourne Planning Scheme. We wanted to inform you of the Minister’s decision, given you have previously made a submission or shown interest in the application of the new residential zones.
The Minister’s letter states that the approval:
- introduces three new Schedules to the General Residential Zone and applies them to parts of Kensington, Parkville, Carlton, North Melbourne, East Melbourne and Jolimont;
- introduces the Residential Growth Zone and applies it to parts of Carlton and Parkville; and,
- introduces the Neighbourhood Residential Zone and applies it to parts of South Yarra.
The amendment will come into effect when notice of its approval is published in the Victoria Government Gazette.
No detail beyond the information contained in the letter from the Minister is available at this stage.
As more information becomes available, we will continue to provide updates via Participate Melbourne (melbourne.vic.gov.au/participate).
