Moonee Valley Planning Scheme

Long term planning in Moonee Valley involves the management of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme.

A planning scheme is a document that has two main sections:

  • The first outlines what we see as the future direction for land use and development in Moonee Valley. It also has policies on issues such as heritage buildings, the environment, and car parking.
  • The second contains zones and overlays, which show you whether a property is for residential, industrial or business use. They detail what you are allowed to do on your land.

You can view the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme, including zoning and overlay maps, through the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) website. Historical data is also available on there.

Planning Scheme amendments are when we make a change to a local policy or the zoning and/or overlay that applies to a property.

An overview of the amendment process is outlined within the Planning Scheme amendment fact sheet (pdf, 359KB).

Review of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme

Under the Planning and Environment Act 1987, a planning scheme must be reviewed regularly to ensure that it is up to date. This includes reflecting local strategic direction, addressing key issues currently facing the municipality, and anticipating potential challenges.

The purpose of a planning scheme review is to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the planning scheme in achieving:

  • the objectives of planning in Victoria
  • the objectives and strategies of the planning scheme, including the SPPF and the LPPF
  • a thorough review of the schemes provisions, such as the local planning policies, zones, overlays and schedules, and whether they facilitate the objectives and strategies of the planning scheme.

To successful carry out this work, we must:

  • identify the major planning issues facing the municipality
  • demonstrate how it implements the SPPF
  • assess the LPPF strategic performance alongside the SPPF
  • document the strategic work that has been completed or carried out since the previous review, including any additional work required to strengthen its strategic direction
  • identify new strategic work necessary to support future policy development or changes
  • outline the consultation process and its outcomes
  • make recommendations arising from the review.
