Planning and development

We need to engage in long term planning to adapt and develop the City of Yarra to meet changing demands.

We are responsible for applying planning, building and heritage controls through the permit process. We aim to ensure that development in the City of Yarra is suitable, safe, sensitive to the environment and preserves significant heritage areas.

As a part of our strategic planning process, we guide Yarra’s growth to ensure new developments occur in appropriate areas that blends in with the existing character of Yarra, and offers good outcomes for the community.

Our planning regulations are set out in the Yarra Planning Scheme. It ensures that Yarra's unique characteristics are maintained but also caters for an increase in population.
