Planning & Development
The City of Yarra website provides some information to assist objectors. See also www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/planning/planning-applications and the kits provided through the National Trust.
The FRA Committee monitor major developments in Fitzroy. Contact us if you know of and are concerned about a development that will impact on you, your neighbours or the suburb.
The City of Yarra website also shows the current major developments under consideration.
Major developments currently before the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) are also listed.
The FRA have developed a Strategic Planning 101 Information Sheet to assist residents in understanding Council planning processes and procedures. Please read here. We invite your feedback on this information sheet as an educative resource for local residents.
Fitzroy/Collingwood C271 Planning Amendment
In September 2022 Yarra had a YourSay consultation on a suite of twelve in-development Design Development Overlays (DDOs). The consultation covered planning controls (include height controls and upper-level setbacks) for iconic streets such as Brunswick St, Gertrude St and Smith St.
Changes to the Yarra Statutory Planning Delegations
In March 2022, significant changes to Yarra’s planning delegations were adopted by Council which gives council officers more authority to make decisions about future statutory planning developments.
