Initial key features include:
- Internal amenity controls;
- Development intensity controls via Floor Area Ratio (18:1);
- Site responsive built form controls e.g. smaller street walls for buildings facing Little Streets; and
- Reinforced protection of open spaces including winter shadowing requirements.
The Melbourne Planning Scheme will not be amended until the full exhibition, submission, panel, and reporting process is complete and considered by the Minister for Planning.
The proposed amendment and supporting documents are available to download from the Department of Land, Water and Planning website.
