Regarding Dandenong

New Zoning

A new plan for housing and jobs in Dandenong has been implemented by the Victorian Coalition Government and the City of Greater Dandenong. 
 
Greater Dandenong is the second council in Melbourne to implement the reformed residential zones, using a well-formulated housing strategy that has areas for protection as well as areas designated for growth. Minister for Planning Matthew Guy has introduced the reformed  residential zones after the council's response to the Coalition Government’s zone reform initiative.

The state's new residential zoning categories correspond very closely with Dandenong's previous zones, so much so, I imagine the former drew inspiration from the latter. I'd be curious to know if there are any big changes now that the zones have been updated for the city. The release mentions that Estate One has been rezoned to Commercial 2 and that this will drive job growth (presumably because it is more flexible) — but I thought the site was previously a Comprehensive Development Zone, and it's hard to get more flexible than that.
