Planning Scheme Amendments
All development in Yarra is regulated by the Yarra Planning Scheme.
Council often proposes changes and additions to the Yarra Planning Scheme to help bring about appropriate development and to maintain the heritage and character of our City.
Community feedback is sought on proposed Amendments to the Yarra Planning Scheme before Council decides whether or not to adopt them. Once Council has adopted an Amendment, final approval needs to be sought from the Minister for Planning.
