changes to low density - your views?

Yarra Ranges Council is seeking feedback from the community on the proposed changes to the subdivision provisions for the Low Density Residential Zone (LDRZ).

As part of the reformed residential zones the Minister for Planning has proposed to reduce the minimum subdivision size in the Low Density Residential Zone (LDRZ) from 4,000 square metres to 2,000 square metres if the lot is connected to reticulated sewerage subject to planning permit approval.

Much of the area in the Dandenongs around the Upwey, Tecoma, Belgrave corridor is zoned LDRZ and it’s an important consideration what happens in these areas given our environment, topography and bushfire risk.

It’s important we hear from community members about this issue and council will be sending letters to all landowners of the LDRZ area of the Shire (that’s around 12,000 letters) to participate in an online survey on the proposed changes.

The survey is open to all residents, you can find out more on council’s website here.
Please note the survey and submissions close Monday 30 June 2014.
