Temporary Moreland Zoning

It is a debacle that developers can now apply for approvals under a temporary zoning system which doesn’t adequately protect neighbourhood character.

Both the State Government and Moreland City Council had a responsibility to avoid this outcome – the Council should have developed a housing strategy as eastern suburb councils have done, and the State Government should not have truncated the process with its 1 July deadline.

Both Council and the State Government need to work quickly and cooperatively to get the new zones in place which properly protect neighbourhood character and resident rights.
