The Victorian Government has introduced new planning controls into the Victorian Planning Scheme after a lengthy formal review and panel process that began in September 2015.
The gazetted controls have not been significantly altered from their draft form (released in April 2016) and relate to:
- built form (street wall, tower setback to street, side and rear boundaries and tower separation)
- wind mitigation
- Floor Area Ratio (FAR)
- Floor Area Uplift (FAU) and the delivery of public benefits
- urban design in the Capital City Zone; and
- sunlight to public spaces.
