September 2018

Council sought community views on proposed Amendment C131 to the Monash Planning Scheme during August-September 2018.

The land affected by this amendment is located at 256-262 Huntingdale Road, Huntingdale.

The Amendment proposes to:

  • Rezone the whole site from part Industrial 1 Zone and part General Residential Zone 2 to a Residential Growth Zone 5
  • Delete the Design and Development Overlay Schedule 1
  • Apply the Environmental Audit Overlay (EAO) over the land


On 6 June 2018, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning authorised Council to prepare Amendment C131.

This authorisation was conditional. Council was required to make several changes to the Amendment, including:

  1. removing the planning permit application from the Amendment, meaning it will not be a combined Section 96A Amendment;  and
  2. rezoning the land to the Residential Growth Zone 5 and not General Residential Zone 7, which was originally sought by Council.

Council considered a request from the owners of land at 256-262 Huntingdale Road, Huntingdale to rezone the land and issue a planning permit for development of a 4 storey apartment building, comprising 82 dwellings, through a combined Section 96A planning scheme amendment and planning permit application.
