Permanent Planning Controls for the Chapel Street Activity Centre – Chapel reVision Structure Plan
The Minister for Planning has approved Amendment C172 to the Stonnington Planning Scheme. The Amendment came into effect on 10 August 2017 when notice of its approval was published in the Government Gazette.
Amendment C172 applies permanent planning controls to the Chapel Street Activity Centre to implement the Chapel reVision Structure Plan. The planning controls include the introduction of the Activity Centre Zone – Schedule 1 (ACZ1) to direct built form, height and preferred land use mix.
Amendment C172 approved documentation can be viewed on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s website, or in the Documentation area on this page.
Amendment C172 was exhibited from August to September 2014. Council received 68 submissions. A Planning Panel was held in March 2015. The Panel recommended adoption of Amendment C172 as exhibited, subject to changes.
At its meeting on 7 September 2015, Council adopted Amendment C172 with changes and submitted the Amendment and prescribed information to the Minister for Planning for approval.
In October 2016, Council received a letter from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) stating that prior to the Minister considering whether to approve Amendment C172, the Minister asked that Council undertake a review to ‘simplify the Activity Centre Zone Schedule to reduce repetition, complexity and length’. The scope of the review was policy neutral.
At its meeting on 3 April 2017, Council considered the review process and the suggested changes to the ACZ1 were sent to the Minister for Planning for consideration as part of the amendment approval process.

Amendment C271 - Chapel Street Activity Centre Anomalies
Following the gazettal of Amendment C172 – Permanent Planning Controls for the Chapel Street Activity Centre – a number of minor wording, drafting and map errors and inconsistencies within the new Schedule 1 to the Activity Centre Zone (ACZ1) were noted by Council officers and raised with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). Amendment C271 corrected these errors to ensure the efficient operation of the ACZ1.
Given the minor nature of the Amendment, the Minister for Planning decided to prepare, adopt and approve Amendment C271 without notice under section 20A of the Planning and Environment Act 1987. The Amendment was gazetted on 30 November 2017.
