Boroondara Council has announced that the Minister has approved the new zones under Amendment C190. However, the Minister did not approve the zones as submitted (details attached above)
Council's proposed minimum lot sizes, site coverage, setbacks and open space proposals have not been approved, reducing the benefits of the proposed zoning. We suggest this is the result of heavy lobbying from the development industry and residents who want to subdivide and re-develop their properties.
We understand that the Advisory Committee reviewing the proposals for additional Growth Zones under Amendment C199 has submitted it's report to the Minister but he has not yet announced his decision.
