We are updating the local policies in our planning scheme to improve the framework we use to make planning decisions. The policies are being introduced through Amendment C269.

This update to the Yarra planning scheme ensures our policies reflect the needs of our growing and evolving city. 

It presents them in a new format recently introduced by the State Government through the State Government's Smart Planning program to simplify and modernise Victoria’s planning policy and rules.

Extensive community feedback was used to develop Amendment C269. This was collected through a number of projects, beginning with our Liveable Yarra community panel in 2015.  

Additionally, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has been consulted and involved through the translation of the planning scheme and the proposed changes.

You can view the amendment and provide comments until Friday 4 December 2020.

To provide comments on the Amendment, you must make a written submission. 

You can find out more about the amendment, and learn how to make a submission, on the Amendment C269 website. 

This project was closed between Tuesday 22 September and Saturday 24 October. This was due to the caretaker period in the lead up to local government elections on Saturday 24 October. During the caretaker period, we are unable to make policy decisions, publish certain documents or discuss this project with the community. This is to protect the integrity of the election process. Find out more about local government elections.
