Consultation has concluded

Thanks to those who have contributed, feedback is now closed.

Council will review the submissions received to determine if the matters raised by submitters can be addressed by Council or if they need to be referred to an independent Planning Panel for further consideration. We will provide updates at our project webpage at and notify the submitters of the next steps.

In our City we have different types of zones for various land uses (ie. commercial, residential, open space, etc). These zones specify how the land can be used and what permits are required under the Maribyrnong Planning Scheme.

Amendment C159 seeks to correct inconsistencies for 25 sites where the existing zone does not reflect the existing or intended use of the land. These inconsistencies include private land with existing residences zoned Public Park and Recreation Zone (PPRZ), and existing parks zoned for residential use. Amendment C159 will rezone these 25 sites to the appropriate zone that makes it formally the same as its existing use. The amendment does not introduce new policy and is routine and administrative in nature.
