About Amendment C266

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 the land at 39 Wattletree Road, Bunyip.

The Amendment proposes to rezone the land at 39 Wattletree Road rezone the land at 39 Wattletree Road, Bunyip from Low Density Residential Zone – Schedule 2 (LDRZ2) to Low Density Residential Zone – Schedule 3 (LDRZ3) to allow the subdivision and development of the land into two lots for residential purposes.

Specifically, the Amendment proposes to:

  • Amend planning scheme map ZN24 to apply the Low Density Residential Zone – Schedule 3 (LDRZ3) to the subject land.

The planning permit application seeks approval for:

The Amendment is consistent with the Bunyip Township Strategy (September 2009) by protecting the township’s landscaped rural character whilst supporting subdivision inside the township boundary.
