To achieve our vision of a high quality, sustainable urban design environment, Doncaster Hill has a number of unique processes in place - in addition to the Manningham Planning Scheme provisions.

These tools are designed to help you navigate more efficiently through the planning permit application process when developing in Doncaster Hill.

View requirements for water initiatives

Every planning permit issued within Doncaster Hill will include conditions for the submission of a Sustainability Management Plan (SMP) which achieves best practice outcomes. The SMP addresses a range of matters including water, energy and indoor environment quality. With respect to water, it is a permit condition that the development must connect to Yarra Water’s recycled water and meet our stormwater objectives.

Plumbing guidelines for Doncaster Hill

Guidelines have been produced in partnership with Victorian Water Retailers to assist developers and plumbers installing compliant pipework to meet Water Authority connection requirements and to address planning conditions that meet our sustainability and stormwaters requirements.
