The Stonnington Planning Scheme came into operation on 13 July 2000, and sets out the direction for using, developing and protecting land within the city.
The Planning Scheme is made up for four key components:
- Planning Policy Framework - a standard set of planning policies and controls that apply to all local government areas within Victoria. We cannot change the Planning Policy Framework.
- Municipal Strategic Statement - outlines the key land use and development objectives and strategies for our local government, and provides the basis for zones, overlays and particular provisions. We review the Municipal Strategic Statement every three years.
- Local planning policies
- Planning Scheme maps

From time to time, changes are made to the Planning Scheme. These changes are call Planning Scheme amendments and may be introduced to respond to changes in the area, a new council policy or to improve how the scheme operates.
Amendments to the Stonnington Planning Scheme can be prepared by Council or the Minister for Planning.
Individuals and other parties may request an amendment to the planning scheme. To be considered, the request must:
- be in writing
- present justification why the amendment should be prepared.
Council is under no obligation to prepare an amendment and, after assessing a request, may decide not to proceed.
