The City of Stonnington and the Victorian government have laws and guidelines in place to make sure land is developed in the best and most responsible way possible. Our planning process which includes planning permits, permit assessments, and planning objections, helps make sure these rules are followed and that every resident has a say on potential changes.
Throughout the Planning section we'll often recommend you visit the ePlanning portal, which is a free online service.
