To better protect the unique character and green space of 33 Rowville properties, we are proposing to apply new planning scheme controls - Planning Scheme Amendment C189knox.

The proposed Amendment will maintain a consistent neighbourhood character that is highly valued in this local area. The properties included in this proposed Amendment, sit between 2 differing residential planning zones, and the Amendment proposes to balance the transition between the lot sizes.

We are inviting your thoughts on the proposed Amendment. Feedback closes on Tuesday, 9 August 2022 at 5:00pm.

Properties in the proposed Amendment

There are 33 Rowville properties included in the proposed Amendment:

  • 24-26 Taylors Lane
  • 26-58 Murray Crescent (even numbers only)
  • 42-70 Vista Crescent (even numbers only)
  • 5, 6A, 6B, 7 Fordham Court.

These properties have large size lots, and a backyard spine with open garden setting, providing a distinctive character and open space in the area.

About the proposed Amendment

The purpose of the proposed Amendment is to protect the unique character of these properties, and apply a new schedule to the Neighbourhood Residential Zone to moderate future development, respect local streetscape, and provide open space and landscaping.

The Amendment proposes to:

  • amend Clause 21.06-3 (Design and Character) by inserting a new strategy under Objective 4 to read:
    • 4.5 In Rowville support residential development that provides an appropriate transition to dwellings in the Low Density Residential Zone through the provision of large backyards for landscaping, tree planting and open space
  • rezone the affected land from the Neighbourhood Residential Zone Schedule 4 (NRZ4), to the Neighbourhood Residential Zone – Schedule 9 (NRZ9).
