Amendment C270yara – Request for Interim Planning Controls for Stage 1 Fitzroy & Collingwood


Decision on C270yara 

Under delegation from the Minister for Planning, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) decided to approve Amendment C270yara with changes. The Amendment came into effect on 27 August 2021.

Out of the 9 interim Design and Development Overlays (DDOs) that were requested by Council (see Further Information below), the following four interim DDOs were approved, with changes:

You can find all approved amendment documentation on DELWP's website

According to the approval, “It has been demonstrated these areas are experiencing development pressure, warranting introduction of interim controls.” A decision on the other requested interim DDOs was not made.

 Key changes that were made to the requested interim DDOs are:

  • The approved interim DDOs include no mandatory controls – all built form requirements (this change is most relevant to interim DDO30, 35 and heritage properties in interim DDOs 36 and 36) and overshadowing requirements (this change is relevant to all interim DDOs) are preferred;
  • Additional conditions to assess proposals that intend to exceed preferred heights were not included; and
  • Interim DDO30 is no longer applicable to Victoria Street, west of Brunswick St.

 See the Overview map of proposed interim DDOs  For details on each proposed interim DDO, see below.

Next Steps

We are working towards an amendment to introduce permanent DDOs for Fitzroy and Collingwood.

Stay tuned for more information and we will keep you posted on how to be involved.
