    The amendment did not propose any changes to the planning overlays affecting the site. A 2m wide drainage easement will be provided within the Special Building Overlay (SBO) following the existing gully. The SBO layer will not be changed.

    The planning permit application sought approval for:

  • The subdivision of the land into nine (9) low density residential lots with a minimum lot size of 0.4 hectare ranging to 0.63 hectare.

Planning Scheme Amendment C94 (Part 1 and 2) - Ivanhoe Activity Area and Saxam Homestead Heritage Overlay

As part of the Ivanhoe structure planning process Council commissioned a heritage assessment of additional key residential areas and individual places in the Activity Area to find out whether they warranted the application of a Heritage Overlay (HO). The study found that one place and two precincts were worthy of inclusion in the Heritage Overlay:

  • Inter-war shop, former post office, at 1041-1041a Heidelberg Road
  • Kenilworth Parade Precinct
  • Toora Street Precinct

A planning scheme amendment was prepared to implement and give statutory effect to the recommendations of the Ivanhoe Activity Centre Heritage Items and Precincts by including the properties recommended for heritage control in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay at Clause 43.01 and the related Heritage Overlay Maps, Kenilworth Parade Precinct, Toora Street Precinct, 1041 Heidelberg Road and Saxam Homestead.

The amendment is required to ensure that the heritage places are protected from inappropriate demolition, alterations or additions that may threaten the significance of the identified heritage precincts or buildings.

One additional property located outside of Ivanhoe has also been included in the request for permanent heritage controls. Saxam Homestead is located at 108-130 Diamond Creek Road (St Helena), Greensborough and was nominated by a member of the community for heritage review. A heritage assessment found that the property does not have architectural significance but does have historical significance that warrants the application of a heritage overlay. Saxam Homestead has been included in this amendment as it was not identified in Banyule’s previous heritage review and subsequent planning scheme amendment.

Amendment C94 was placed on public exhibition between 5 December 2013 and 13 February 2014. A number of submissions were received during the exhibition period.

At its meeting on 3 March 2014, Council resolved to split the Amendment into two parts:

  • Part 1 comprised places in respect of which no submissions were received, and was adopted by Council; and
  • Part 2 comprised one precinct (Kenilworth Parade Precinct HO195) and one site (Saxam Homestead HO197) that were the subject of submissions, and were referred to a Panel.

Planning Scheme Amendment C94 (Part 1)

Amendment C94 (Part 1) was referred to the Minister for Planning for approval on Monday 17 March 2014.

The Minister for Planning approved Amendment C94 (Part 1) to the Banyule Planning Scheme without any changes. The Amendment came into operation on Thursday 17 July 2014.

The Amendment makes the existing interim overlays HO194 (Toora Street Precinct) and HO196 (former Darebin Post Office) permanent controls in the Banyule Planning Scheme, implementing the recommendations of the ‘Ivanhoe Activity Centre Heritage Review – Additional Precincts and Places 2013’.

Planning Scheme Amendment C94 (Part 2)

An independent Planning Panel was appointed to hear submissions in relation to Banyule Planning Scheme Amendment C94 (Part 2).

Council has received the Panel Report for Amendment C94. The Planning Panel has supported Council’s C94 proposal for a permanent Heritage Overlay Schedule 195 and 197. This overlay will recognise the importance of these heritage places in the Banyule Planning Scheme.

At its meeting on Monday 7 July 2014 Council resolved to adopt Planning Scheme Amendment C94 (Part 2) so that a permanent HO 195 and 197 is introduced into the Banyule Planning Scheme. Council then wrote to the Minister for Planning seeking approval of Amendment C94 (Part 2) and requesting a timely outcome before 31 October 2014, which is when the temporary HO195 is due to expire. The Minister for Planning approved Amendment C94 (Part 2) without any changes. The Amendment was Gazetted on 23 October 2014.

Approved Planning Scheme Amendment C100 - New Residential Zones - Gazetted on 24 July 2014

Banyule Planning Scheme Amendment C100 for the new residential zones has been approved. This means, if your property used to be in the Residential 1 Zone it will now have a new residential zoning.

In 2013 the Victorian Government released three new residential zones for all Victorian council’s to help simplify planning requirements and better manage growth. Council’s had until July 2014 to introduce these zones into their Planning Schemes. For Banyule City Council this meant replacing the previous Residential 1 Zone with the Neighbourhood Residential Zone (NRZ), General Residential Zone (GRZ), and Residential Growth Zone (RGZ).

Banyule introduced these new zones to the Banyule Planning Scheme through Amendment C100, which was approved by the Minister for Planning in July 2014.

Amendment C100 included:

  • The application of the RGZ, GRZ and NRZ.
  • The application of Schedule 1 to the RGZ and Schedules 1 and 2 to the GRZ. These Schedules give local variations to some of the State’s requirements in the new zones. The two different schedules have been applied in the GRZ as they are tailored to suit the characteristics of different areas within a zone.
  • Updates to the Local Planning Policy Framework and the Special Use Zone to reflect the introduction of the new zones.
  • The permanent application of the Schedule to the Low Density Residential Zone (LDRZ) to retain the minimum lot size of 0.4ha.
  • Updates to the Banyule Planning Scheme maps to show the new RGZ, GRZ and NRZ, and update the reference to the new Commercial Zones that were recently introduced by the Victorian Government.

The previous Minister for Planning also made the following changes to the approved C100:

  • Schedule 1 and 2 to the NRZ were referred to the Residential Zones Standing Advisory Committee (RZSAC) for review. The review was done in November last year. The new Minister for Planning did not approve these schedules, in accordance with the RZSAC recommendations.
  • One neutral Schedule 3 to the NRZ (NRZ3) was applied to the entire NRZ, which included a permit trigger for single dwellings and additions for lots between 300 and 500 sqm.

These changes mean that the State’s default:

  • limit of 2 dwellings per lot, applies to every lot in the NRZ in Banyule, regardless of its size.
  • maximum building height of 8m also applies to every lot in the NRZ in Banyule.

Transitional provisions for these aspects of the NRZ apply to planning permit applications that were lodged before the new zones were introduced.

The details of the C100 approval were reported to Council at the Public Meeting on Monday 21 July 2014. The agenda and minutes for this meeting, including the report on the new zones are available on the Minutes and Agendas page.

Copies of the amendment documentation including the approved zones and schedules, are available from the DELWP Website.

Planning Scheme Amendment C103 - 22 & 24 Peters Street, Watsonia

The Amendment was required to facilitate the possible sale of the land and reallocation of resources to purchase or improve land for public recreation within Banyule.

For details of the Amendment please follow the links below:

Amendment C103 is now part of the Banyule Planning Scheme.

If you have any questions about Amendment C103 please contact Nicola Rooks, Project Support Officer, by phone on 9457 9835 (Mon, Wed, Thurs) or email at nicola.rooks@banyule.vic.gov.au.

Planning Scheme Amendment C93 - Ivanhoe Activity Area

Amendment C93 to the Banyule Planning Scheme has been approved and was published in the Victorian Government Gazette on 28 May 2015.

The amendment enables the implementation of the Ivanhoe Structure Plan which was adopted by Council on 17 December 2012 with a revised version adopted on 1 December 2014. The structure plan outlines design and land use objectives and strategies for the Ivanhoe Major Activity Area and its seven precincts. The precincts are:

  • Precinct 1 - Darebin Station
  • Precinct 2 - Ivanhoe Plaza
  • Precinct 3 - Lower Ivanhoe
  • Precinct 4 - Ivanhoe Station
  • Precinct 5 – Upper Heidelberg Road
  • Precinct 6 - Civic Precinct
  • Precinct 7 - Accessible Residential

This amendment introduces a new schedule 11 and 12 to the Design and Development Overlay (DDO) makes updates to the Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS) and changes the zoning of some land within the Activity Centre as described below and in the C93 Explanatory Report.

Municipal Strategic Statement

Amendment C93 amends the Banyule MSS by:

  • Updating Clause 21.08, Local Places, to include the Heidelberg Specialised and Major Activity Centre (21.08-2) and the Ivanhoe Major Activity Area (21.08-3) as places that have strategic policy developed and implemented into the scheme.
  • Updating Clause 21.08 to include the Ivanhoe Major Activity Area (21.08-3) which includes Visions, Objectives and Strategies relating to the future direction of the Ivanhoe Major Activity Area.
  • Updating Clause 21.09 (References) to include the following Reference Documents: Ivanhoe Structure Plan, 2012 and Ivanhoe Activity Centre Heritage Items & Precincts, Context, 2013

The MSS will also be updated to include a number of objectives and strategies relating to the future direction of the Ivanhoe Activity Area based around the five main themes outlined in the Structure Plan:

  • Cultural heritage and identity
  • Land use
  • Built environment
  • Natural environment
  • Transport and infrastructure

The proposed MSS changes mirror the Ivanhoe Structure Plan in terms of providing an overall vision and policy position for the Ivanhoe Activity Area.

Design and Development Overlays

Amendment C93:

  • Deletes Schedule 7 (Urban Design Guidelines for Ivanhoe Shopping Centre).
  • Introduces a new Schedule 11 to the Design and Development Overlay (DDO11) at Clause 43.02 to control the design and built form outcomes in the Diversity Areas (Precincts 1-5) as identified in the Ivanhoe Structure Plan.

Planning Scheme Amendment C101 – Introducing a new Schedule to the Special Building Overlay

Council has prepared Planning Scheme Amendment C101 which proposes to apply Schedule 2 to the Special Building Overlay (SBO2) to land which has been identified as being more likely to experience overland stormwater flows during a severe storm (also called a 1-in-100 year storm) and where Council is the responsible authority for local drains.

Specifically Amendment C101 proposes to:

  • Introduce a new schedule, Schedule 2, to the Special Building Overlay at Clause 44.05.
  • Update the existing Schedule to the Special Building Overlay so that the Schedule title and map label convention references the number 1.
  • Update planning scheme maps 1SBO, 2SBO, 3SBO, 4SBO, 5SBO, 6SBO, 7SBO, 8SBO, 9SBO, 10SBO, 11SBO, 12SBO, 13SBO, 14SBO, 15SBO, 16SBO and 19SBO to define the extent of the Special Building Overlay Schedules 1 and 2.
  • Insert a new planning scheme map 20SBO to define the extent of the Special Building Overlay Schedule 2.
  • Add an additional planning scheme map, 20SBO, to the Schedule of Clause 61.03.

If you would like to view these documents and the Explanatory Report for Amendment C101 please visit Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website.

Mapping

Areas which have been included in the new SBO2 were identified by our expert drainage consultants. Details about the methodology and the development of the SBO2 can be found within the associated report.

The index map below shows the extent of the proposed SBO2.

Using the numbering system on the index map above, please click on the relevant grid reference on the map for more detail of the SBO2 in your local area.

You can also a request a property level map by emailing your name and address to strategic.planning@banyule.vic.gov.au

Why is Amendment C101 being proposed and what does it mean

Council has decided to pursue this amendment to ensure that land subject to overland stormwater flows is developed in a way that minimises the risk of damage to properties and harm to people.  Being included in the SBO2 means that future development on the land may require a planning permit.  A discussion should be had with Council’s development planning department for advice on this.  If a planning permit is applied for and granted, conditions on it will apply to ensure that living and sleeping areas are protected from the impacts of severe storms and that works do not increase the overland flow risk to neighbouring properties.

The Existing SBO in the Banyule Planning Scheme

Please note that all of the areas included within Schedule 2 are under the jurisdiction of Council as the responsible authority for drainage.  There is an existing Schedule to the SBO already in the planning scheme and this relates to 1 in 100 year inundation areas where Melbourne Water manages the drainage system in its role as the regional drainage and floodplain management authority for the Port Phillip and Westernport region. Contact Melbourne Water for more information on their role.  This Schedule will be renamed to Schedule 1 as part of Amendment C101.

Amendment C101 Progress

The following information will be periodically updated for C101’s progress through the planning scheme amendment process.  Amendment documents and progress are also available from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website.

Update 1: 11 May 2015

Public exhibition happened for 5 weeks between Thursday 26 February 2015 and Thursday 2 April 2015.  The amendment documents were available for public inspection at:

  • Greensborough Service Centre  - 9 – 13 Flintoff Street, GREENSBOROUGH
  • Ivanhoe Service Centre - 275 Upper Heidelberg Road, IVANHOE

Following exhibition, Council considered the received submissions at its 11 May 2015 meeting. Some submissions supported the proposal and others wanted changes. Council resolved to write to the Minister for Planning, so a Planning Panel could be appointed to consider all unresolved submissions.  Council also resolved to contact all submitters to give them an update on C101’s progress. This included informing those submitters with unresolved issues that their submission was being referred to a Planning Panel.

A summary of issues in submissions, along with more detail about C101’s background, is available in the 11 May 2015 Council Agenda (see item 4.2).

Update 2: 22 May 2015

After Council’s 11 May 2015 meeting, written contact was made with all submitters to give them an update on C101’s progress after Council completed public exhibition.  On 19 May 2015 a letter was sent to the Minister for Planning, requesting the appointment of a Planning Panel so unresolved submissions could be further considered.  Any unresolved submissions with queries about:

  • SBO2 maps, were referred to Council’s expert consultants who prepared the maps;
  • Drainage maintenance in specific locations, were also referred to Council’s Cleansing and Maintenance Department, for any outstanding maintenance requests.

Planning Panels Victoria administer Planning Panels and will contact submitters, to see how they would like to participate in the Planning Panel’s process.  We have engaged expert consultants as Expert Witnesses, to prepare and present a statement at a planning panel hearing.  This will include their advice on submissions that queried the SBO2 maps.
