Planning power for locals

Planning power for locals Image

Locals who wish to stay in tune with new developments in Docklands may be interested to discover that there is indeed a way to do so without having to endure tiring research.

While the service has been available since 2014, the City of Melbourne’s (CoM) interactive development activity monitor is now easier to access than ever following a revamp of the council’s website late last year.

The development activity monitor is part of an interactive mapping system, which was first introduced on the CoM website in 2011 and provides information on everything from historic maps to essential services.

By heading to the CoM’s website, clicking on “City Maps” and “more”, one can access the interactive development monitor, which provides up-to-date planning information on every site in the municipality.

Clicking on any individual site can reveal information into approved permit applications, planning controls as well as the site’s history and area size.

A spokesperson for the City of Melbourne said that, while the maps were only updated twice a year, the activity monitor was amended regularly on a separate spreadsheet with latest information.  

“The data is comprehensive and updated twice a year,” the spokesperson said.

“The City of Melbourne’s Smart City Office manages the development activity monitor and is responsible for keeping it up to date with the latest planning applications and decisions.”
