Gipps Precinct Local Area Plan

Traffic in Smith StreetIn February 2008, Council adopted a Local Area Plan for the Gipps Precinct in Collingwood.

The plan rezoned the precinct from Industrial 1 zone to Business 3 zone to facilitate a shift towards office and commercial uses. Rezoning to Business 3 enables new office, manufacturing and light industrial developments, while allowing existing businesses to continue operating or expand.

Council sought community feedback in late 2009. The adopted plan can be viewed here:

Following the adoption of the plan, Council adopted Amendment C102 to the Yarra Planning Scheme, which implements the recommendations made in the plan. 

The Amendment:

  • rezoned land within the Gipps Precinct from Industrial 1 to Business 3, and 
  • applied a new Design and Development Overlay to the affected area.

Council sought community feedback on Amendment C102 in mid-August 2010. The Amendment was adopted by Council at its April 2011 meeting and approved by the Minister for Planning in June 2011. For more information or to view the Amendment and its supporting documentation, click here.
