Council resolved at its meeting on 26 June 2018 to refer all unresolved submissions to an independent Planning Panel. Council has considered all submissions and has formally appointed an independent Planning Panel to review the amendment. At this stage, the following dates have been scheduled:

  • Directions Hearing for the week commencing 3 June 2019

March 2019 update

Amendment C193moon is on exhibition from 28 March to 3 May 2019 and we are calling for submissions.

Since October 2018, Council has worked closely with DELWP to ensure Amendment C193moon complies the new Planning Scheme structure introduced by Amendment VC148. Amendment C193moon proposes to implement the findings of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme Review 2018 and the land use and development directions of the MV2040 Strategy 2018, by replacing the Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS) at Clause 21 and Local Planning Policies at Clause 22 of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme with a Municipal Planning Strategy and local policies within the Planning Policy Framework.

For a summary of the amendment, please see the Information Sheet.

October 2018 update

On 26 October, the Minister for Planning provided authorisation to prepare the Amendment subject to conditions. These conditions include:

  • ensuring local content is compliant with the State reforms brought on by Amendment VC148 which introduced an integrated Planning Policy Framework to all planning schemes in Victoria; and
  • updating all amendment documentation to reflect the amendment number 'C193moon'

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) have released Planning Advisory Note 71 (pdf) and Planning Advisory Note 72 (pdf) to provide more information about Amendment VC148 and what this means for all councils.

 June 2018 update

The Moonee Valley Planning Scheme Review (PDF, 2.26MB) (Accessible word docx, 1.71MB)concluded that the current Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS) does not adequately represent the vision, key issues, opportunities or strategic directions for the municipality. This is based on the direction articulated by the MV2040 Strategy - Council's long-term 'umbrella' strategy that will guide future work. The review also noted that the current content of the MSS is in many cases outdated, poorly phrased or a duplicate of State Government policy. The key recommendation was to comprehensively re-write the MSS to align with the MV2040 Strategy. The review also identified a number of technical deficiencies regarding the zones, overlays and schedules, all of which will be addressed in separate planning scheme amendments.

On Tuesday, 26 June 2018, Council adopted the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme Review report. At this meeting, Council also resolved to undertake Amendment C195.

Amendment C195 includes:

  • A new MSS that has been developed based on the recommendations of the Planning Scheme Review Report and to align with the MV2040 Strategy
  • A new Clause 22.06 - Environmental Sustainable Development.
