About Amendment C262

The Amendment is a combined planning permit application and planning scheme amendment under section 96A of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 and applies to part of the land at 11 Thom Road, Lang Lang.

The Amendment proposes to rezone part of the land at 11 Thom Road that is currently within the Farming Zone – Schedule 1 (FZ1) to Neighbourhood Residential Zone - Schedule 1 (NRZ1) to allow the subdivision and development of the land for residential purposes.

Specifically, the Amendment proposes to:

  • Amend planning scheme map ZN31 to apply the Neighbourhood Residential Zone - Schedule 1 (NRZ1) to the portion of the land within the Urban Growth Boundary.

The planning permit application seeks approval for:

  • a staged subdivision of the land into 28 lots
  • the creation of 2 reserves
  • the creation of restrictions on the Plan of Subdivision.

The Amendment is required to allow the subdivision of the land for residential purposes. Rezoning the land from FZ1 to NRZ1 is consistent with the strategic directions and outcomes sought by the Lang Lang Township Strategy (July 2009).

At the Council meeting on 15 November 2021, Council resolved to seek authorisation to prepare Amendment C262.
