Moreland Planning Scheme Review 2018

What is a Planning Scheme Review?

The Planning Scheme affects everyone who lives and works in Moreland as it sets out how and where people can develop and use land in the city. Moreland wants to hear from the community and regular users of the planning scheme.

Council is required by legislation to regularly review its Planning Scheme. This means reviewing whether the Planning Scheme provisions, such as local planning policies, zones, overlays and schedules have been effective  in achieving the objectives and strategies of the planning scheme.

Council is required by the Planning and Environment Act 1987 to write a Report to the Minister for Planning by 3 July 2018 that summarises the findings of the Planning Scheme Review. The Report will inform the continuous improvement of the planning scheme. See the key links on the right hand side of this page for more information about what a Planning Scheme Review is, and the outcomes of the Review which were adopted by Council in June 2018.

Any proposed improvements to the planning scheme that flow from the review would be carried out as planning scheme amendments separate to the review. Further public consultation will occur on any proposed changes.


Submissions for this review closed on 20 April 2018. 

We invited people to tell us how the Moreland Planning Scheme works for you, and how you think it can be improved.
