The City of Melbourne has undertaken a review of the zoning of open spaces in the Melbourne Planning Scheme.

Council has identified various open spaces and parks across the municipality where the existing zone does not reflect the existing or intended use of the land. The zone sets out the types of uses that may occur on that land. There are also four properties that are zoned as open space which are privately owned residential properties and two properties which are affected by two zones and require correction.

Amendment C380 is required to ensure the zoning correctly identifies the existing use of land as open space or other uses.
