    Darebin City Council has received the report of the independent planning panel regarding the new Municipal Strategic Statement and local planning policies (Amendment C138) and the proposed planning controls for St Georges Road Corridor (Amendment C136) and Plenty Road Corridor (Amendment C137).

    The Panel generally supported the amendments and has recommended that the Council adopt them subject to a number of changes. The Panel’s key recommendations and suggested changes are summarised in the Executive summary which you can download here.

    To download a copy of the full report, click here.

    The Panel commended the Council in the detailed work underpinning the amendments and Council’s approach to leading change in Darebin. The Panel noted that:

    “Council presented an extensive submission responding to the strategic basis of the Amendments as well as issues and concerns of the 253 submissions...

    …The Panel supports the strategic direction of the review of Council’s MSS and the idea of managing development along public transport corridors….

    ...The Panel considers that Amendments C136, C137 and C138 will provide Council with a robust policy and development control platform to respond to the development pressures in inner and middle Melbourne over the years to come.”

    The next phase of the amendment process involves Council reaching a decision that considers and responds to the Panel recommendations. The amendments will be presented to Council for a decision in a two stage process with Amendment C138 to be decided first at the Council Meeting of 15 September 2014 due to its strategic importance to other current and proposed projects. The Plenty and St Georges Road amendments have greater complexity involved and will be presented at a later Council Meeting.

    There will be no further formal consultation for this final stage of the three amendments, but submitters will be kept informed by the Strategic Planning Unit. Further updates will also be posted on this website as the Amendments progress.
