Greater Dandenong Landscape Plan Guidelines

Cover page Landscape Plan Guidelines May 2023

These guidelines explain what you should include in a landscape plan for private developments (residential, commercial, and industrial) as part of the statutory planning approval process.

The guidelines include lists of preferred plant and tree species recommended for the Greater Dandenong local climate, and the future preferred landscape. Lists of prohibited species (weeds) are also included.

Landscape plans should be prepared by a qualified Landscape Designer or Landscape Architect early in the planning phase. This ensures the landscape design is integrated into the building and engineering design from the beginning.

A Landscape Plan (and Plant Schedule) is necessary for most planning permit applications.
