Introduction of an Environmentally Efficient Design policy
Yarra Council has prepared Amendment C133 to the Yarra Planning Scheme.
The amendment was exhibited for public comment in April 2013 concurrently with four other councils - Banyule, Moreland, Port Phillip and Whitehorse. The closing date for public submissions was 29 April 2013.
The amendments of all five councils seek to introduce a new Local Planning Policy titled Environmentally Efficient Design to the Local Planning Policy Framework to each respective municipality.
The amendments affect all land within each of the participating municipalities. The concurrent exhibition of the five amendments is at the request of the Department of Planning and Community Development. It is anticipated that other Councils will be pursuing similar amendments in the future.
While the objectives of the new policy are the same, the Policy Basis, Application Requirements and Reference Documents have been tailored by each Council to reflect local variations in development type.
Yarra City Council has included an update to Clause 21.07 Ecologically Sustainable Development to reflect the introduction of the local EED policy through the introduction of a new strategy.
