For the reasons set out in this submission, the Property Council does not support Melbourne Planning Scheme C278 and recommends that the City of Melbourne does not proceed with it, in its current form.
Our primary concerns are:
- The accumulative impacts of the bluntness of the planning mechanism and the mandatory nature of the controls, including the application of the amendment to parks in their entirety.
- The appropriateness of the testing times and hours proposed.
- The drafting of the amendment documentation, in particular DDO8, in which we believe transitional provisions should apply.
