The City of Melbourne has prepared Amendment C259 to the Melbourne Planning Scheme.

This planning scheme amendment is required as the selected properties have recently been rezoned from General Residential to Mixed Use Zone, but do not have a Design and Development Overlay to manage built form.

Amendment C259 proposes to extend DDO32 to cover 120-162 Capel Street and 135-159 Peel Street in order to introduce maximum mandatory 14 metre height controls consistent with adjoining Mixed Use Zone properties.
