Council adopted Amendment C210 at its meeting on 15 August 2017. The amendment was approved by the Minister for Planning and formed part of the Yarra Planning Scheme from 1 February 2018. 

What did this amendment do?

Amendment C210 updated the Special Building Overlay (SBO) in the Yarra Planning Scheme which shows the location and extent of land affected by overland flooding in a 1 in 100 year storm.

Melbourne Water had updated its mapping of the SBO in Yarra and requested that the planning scheme maps be updated.

The overlay triggers the need for a planning permit for buildings and works and referral of the planning application to Melbourne Water for review.

The statutory documents are available on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website.
