Residential Zone review

Policy Review

Echelon Planning was appointed by an inner-Melbourne Council to analyse the likely implications of the reformed residential zone (March 2017) on the planning and design of medium density housing.  


The analysis comprised a comparison of the new zoning provisions against the former controls, as well as analysis of over 70 projects case studies, and modelling of the potential impact of the new zones on the overall housing capacity of the municipality.


The review assisted Council in forming its response to the new zones.
