Amendment C207moon - Notice of Approval with changes

Council received notice from the Minister for Planning that Notice of Approval of Amendment C207moon with changes, was to be published in the Special Government Gazette and come into affect on 28 January 2022.

The MPAC to 2040: Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Local Plan outlines a vision for an activity centre that is easy to move around, the environment is resilient, the place is full of life, and the valued heritage character is protected.

We have reviewed the activity centre comprehensively and made recommendations for how new development should function, how community facilities should be delivered, how pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle access and movement can be improved, what public spaces should look like (including how to make them more environmentally sustainable) and how we can facilitate the delivery of affordable housing outcomes.

Amendment C207moon proposes to implement the Local Plan and associated background documents to ensure the Planning Scheme aligns with our vision for MPAC. This includes a suite of mandatory and discretionary planning controls to provide greater clarity regarding development outcomes in the activity centre.

Thank you to everyone who provided a submission. All submissions were referred to an independent planning panel.
