We’re reviewing our Planning Scheme to ensure it not only aligns with current State and local policy directions but also remains relevant and meets the needs of our community – and we’re keen to get your feedback on how we are doing.

There are eight key themes that we are reviewing, and we invite you to have your say on one or more. Feedback is open till 21 August 2022.

The Stonnington Planning Scheme came into operation on 13 July 2000, and sets out the direction for using, developing and protecting land within the city.

The Planning Scheme is made up for four key components:

  1. Planning Policy Framework - a standard set of planning policies and controls that apply to all local government areas within Victoria. We cannot change the Planning Policy Framework.
  2. Municipal Strategic Statement - outlines the key land use and development objectives and strategies for our local government, and provides the basis for zones, overlays and particular provisions. We review the Municipal Strategic Statement every three years.
