Following extensive analysis, community consultation, review by an independent planning panel and approval from the Minister for Planning, changes have been made to the residential planning rules to improve the quality and design of new housing (such as apartments and townhouses) and to make sure the right type of housing is built in the right place.
In August 2016, Council requested the Minister for Planning to approve changes to the Residential Planning Rules in the Greater Dandenong Planning Scheme (these changes are known as Amendment C182).
In November 2017, the Minister for Planning decided to approve most of the requested changes, except for all parts associated with the proposed Residential Growth Zone Schedule 3.
The amendment was partially approved and gazetted on 21 December 2017 as Amendment C182 Part 1.
Amendment C213 implemented the final objectives of Amendment C182. For further information please refer to the Planning Scheme Amendement C213 webpage.
