Amendment C97

Cremorne and Church Street Precinct

Amendment C97 to the Yarra Planning Scheme was abandoned by Council at its meeting on 16 February 2010.

At its meeting, Council resolved:

  • That, having further considered the implications of the proposed rezoning of specified land within the Cremorne and Church Street Precinct from Business 3 Zone to Business 2 Zone, Council abandon Amendment C97 to the Yarra Planning Scheme, pursuant to section 23 (c) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, on the basis of the likely detrimental impact of such a rezoning on the Cremorne and Church Street Precinct as a key employment precinct in Yarra.
  • That, pursuant to section 28 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, Council advise the Minister for Planning of its decision to abandon Amendment C97 to the Yarra Planning Scheme.
  • That Council inform all the submitters to Amendment C97 to the Yarra Planning Scheme and land owners and occupiers within the Cremorne and Church Street Precinct of Council’s decision to abandon Amendment C97.
  • Seek authorisation from the Minister for Planning under section 8A (3) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 to prepare Amendment C127 to the Yarra Planning Scheme, including the following components:
    1. rezoning of the properties fronting the east side of Punt Road between Swan and Blanche Streets, currently zoned Residential 1, to Mixed Use Zone 
    2. changes to the Municipal Strategic Statement    
    3. a new Local Policy for the Cremorne and Church Street Precinct 
    4. a new Design and Development Overlay to apply to the Cremorne and Church Street Precinct. 

Council is currently preparing a proposed Swan Street Structure Plan, which includes the study area generally bounded by Punt Road in the west, Rowena Parade, The Vaucluse, Boyd Street and Manton Street in the north, Loyola Grove and Park Grove in the east and the Yarra River in the south. The Cremorne and Church Street Precinct is encompassed in this area. Council will await the outcome of this structure plan before proceeding with Amendment C127.
