  • The introduction of site coverage, permeability, landscaping requirements and decision guidelines to the schedules for Maroondah's residential zones.
  • Deletion of the Neighbourhood Character Policy Section 22.02 of the Maroondah Planning Scheme. This policy will be made redundant as it was prepared prior to Victorian Government's changes to the Victorian Planning Provisions New Residential Zones.
