Amendment C220whse to the Whitehorse Planning Scheme proposes to implement the findings of the Whitehorse Residential Corridors Built Form Study, which was adopted by Council in January 2019, through the Whitehorse Planning Scheme.
In particular, the Amendment to the Whitehorse Planning Scheme proposes to:
- Introduce Schedule 11 to Clause 43.02 (Design and Development Overlay (DDO11) )
- Make minor policy changes to Clauses 21.06 (Housing) and 22.03 (Residential Development) to reference the Whitehorse Residential Corridors Built Form Study, 2019 (the Study)
- Include the Study as a Background Document at Clauses 21.06 (Housing) and 22.03 (Residential Development) and in the Schedule to Clause 72.08 (Background Documents)
- Amend all the planning scheme maps by applying the DDO11 to land affected by the amendment.
The proposed Design and Development Overlay (DDO11) will primarily introduce a mandatory height limit and front setback and discretionary side and rear setbacks and landscaping requirements for new development proposals within land that is zoned either Schedule 1 or 2 to the Residential Growth Zone (RGZ1 or RGZ2) along the Whitehorse Road and Burwood Highway corridors. However, RGZ1 or RGZ2 land within activity centres, existing structure plans and/or urban design frameworks or other Design and Development Overlay schedules, is generally not included in this Amendment.
The maps below show the properties affected by the proposed DDO11.
Detailed Planning Scheme maps of the proposed DDO11 can be viewed in the Amendment C220whse documents below.
