Amendment C221 - updates proposed for flooding overlays

Council is working with Melbourne Water to update existing planning provisions for land in Stonnington that is prone to flooding during extreme storms to ensure the overlays are accurate and up-to-date.

Melbourne Water and the City of Stonnington are proposing revisions to Stonnington’s Planning Scheme, under Amendment C221, to minimise the effects of overland flows and flooding on new buildings, and ensure new developments don’t adversely affect existing properties.

See here if your property is affected.

Please note: the interactive map shows the flood maps as they were publicly exhibited in March and April 2018. Council adopted several changes to these maps at its meeting on 9 July 2018, click here to view the Council minutes.
The interactive map continues to be made available for informational purposes only.

  • Planning Controls Explained

    7 months ago

    An overlay is a planning control in an area where proposed buildings or developments may require special consideration because of particular features, such as areas prone to flooding. An overlay generally consists of both a parent clause and a schedule, where the schedule allows fine-tuning of a planning control. Both the parent clause and the schedule apply.

    Two types of overlays are affected:

    1. Special Building Overlay (SBO) is a planning control that identifies areas prone to stormwater overflow from either Melbourne Water or Council drains. A link to the parent clause is available here

    The proposal also seeks to distinguish between the two drainage systems using two schedules:

    • Schedule 1: flooding associated with main drainage infrastructure (managed by Melbourne Water)
    • Schedule 2: flooding associated with local drainage infrastructure (managed by Council)

    2. Land Subject to Inundation Overlays (LSIO) is a Melbourne Water specific control that applies to land affected by flooding associated with waterways and open drainage systems. A link to the parent clause is available here.
