31 March 2015 update - Amendment C100 approved
The Minister for Planning has now approved Amendment C100, which rezones the Moonee Ponds Activity Centre to an Activity Centre Zone.
The new Activity Centre Zone for Moonee Ponds is effective as of 30 March 2015.
The Activity Centre Zone for Moonee Ponds (Amendment C100) was adopted by Council in June 2012, following extensive public consultation and an independent panel hearing.
The Amendment was sent to the Minister for Planning in July 2012, where it has been waiting for approval
The Minister for Planning has also included planning controls for the Moonee Valley Racecourse site into the Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Zone, and made some changes to the planning controls for that site.
The changes made for the Racecourse are more consistent with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee, including lowering the building heights.

See the approved Amendment Documentation for details on all of the changes introduced through Amendment C100.
All landowners who have now been rezoned to Activity Centre Zone will shortly be sent a letter from Council.
