Residential 3 Zone (R3Z)

What is an Residential 3 Zone (R3Z)?

R3Z provides for residential development at a range of densities with a variety of dwellings to meet the housing needs of all households. R3Z also seeks to limit the maximum height of a dwelling or residential building. In appropriate locations R3Z allows for educational, recreational, religious, community and a limited range of other non-residential uses to serve local community needs.

Please note: The Planning Zones in Victoria have been reformed. Councils will have 12 months from 1 July 2013 to introduce the new residential zones into their local planning schemes. Various planning scheme amendments are being proposed by councils to apply the new residential zones. Visit Blockbrief for more information.
