Amendments C248 and C249 – Interim Planning Controls for Bridge Road and Victoria Street

About the amendments

The Minister for Planning approved interim controls on Bridge Road and Victoria Street and they were included in the Yarra Planning Scheme on 15 November 2018.  They expire on 1 October 2020. 

Are we seeking permanent controls?

In the coming months and into 2019, we will prepare structure plans (or similar strategies) that will inform the preparation of planning scheme amendments to introduce permanent DDOs. These amendments will be subject to a formal public exhibition process and potentially consideration by an independent planning panel appointed by the Minister for Planning.
