What does this mean for my property?
If the MAEO applies to your property, it may affect what you are able to use or develop your land for in the future. However, existing homes are not required to make any changes. If you are planning a new use or development on your land, such as an extension or other change, you should speak to your local council about how the MAEO may affect your proposal. Limited exemptions apply for valid building permits and lodged planning permit applications.
For more information on how the MAEO affects your property, read the fact sheet below.
To see if the Melbourne Airport Environs Overlay applies to your property, use the visual tool below by searching for your property address or zooming in to locate your property.
Future MAEO updates
Please note, the MAEO could be updated again in the future. This is to reflect Commonwealth endorsed Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) in future Melbourne Airport Master Plans. Some properties that are not affected by this update of the MAEO may be affected by future ANEFs.
