This is a ‘public service announcement’! We are pretty confident that most residents would not have the foggiest as to the zoning of their area – unless they have already been impacted. Much credit for this must go to council in that its maps are illegible and not all streets named. Hence, we thought it worthwhile to pinpoint some of the streets that have now pretty much been given carte blanche for three and four storey developments. If anyone has any doubt that this is the case, then there’s this summation from a VCAT member recently – The two schedules to the zones (GRZ) have similar provisions. Both provide for a building height up to 10.5m and include reference to a lift overrun. This would appear to indicate that apartment style buildings might be acceptable in these areas.
