THREE new residential zones are proposed to replace the existing Residential 1 Zone, Residential 2 Zone and Residential 3 Zone in Victoria. They are:
- The Substantial Change Zone provides for housing growth by a mix of housing types that includes medium to higher density housing in appropriate locations.
- The Incremental Change Zone allows for a variety of housing types including medium density housing provided that it respects the character of the neighbourhood.
- The Limited Change Zone enables specific characteristics of the neighbourhood to be protected through greater control over new housing development.
Submissions can be made to the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) online, via email or mail and must be received by Thursday, 9 April 2009.
