About Amendment C294

On 16 April 2018, the Urban Planning Special Committee (UPSC) resolved to commence the planning scheme amendment process to introduce proposed changes to the Boroondara Planning Scheme.  Access a copy of the UPSC report.

Council requested authorisation from the Minister for Planning to prepare and exhibit Amendment C294 on 27 April 2018. Following authorisation from the Minister for Planning, Council has commenced the exhibition process. 

As part of the public exhibition process, we have notified and invite feedback from:

  • All affected and adjoining property owners and occupiers;
  • Anyone who lodged feedback as part of the preliminary consultation; and
  • Interested stakeholders.  

The amendment proposes to include 20 individual heritage places, nine heritage precincts and six precinct extensions in the Heritage Overlay on a permanent basis to the Boroondara Planning Scheme.

Next steps

Review of submissions received

Once the public exhibition process is complete, Council officers will review all submissions received and prepare a report for consideration by the UPSC.  

The UPSC will decide whether to:

  • Make changes to the amendment in response to submissions.
  • Seek appointment of an independent Panel and refer any submissions to the Panel for consideration.
  • Recommend adoption of the amendment by Council, if there are no submissions or all submissions have been resolved.
  • Abandon the amendment. 

The report is likely to be considered by the UPSC in mid-2019.
