About Amendment C240

Amendment C240 implements the key objectives and strategies of the Koo Wee Rup Township Strategy (October 2015) and the Koo Wee Rup Town Centre Urban Design Study, Design Guidelines (February 2013) (Urban Design Guidelines) by applying two Design and Development Overlays (DDO) and two Development Plan Overlays (DPO) as follows:

  • Moody Street Residential Precinct - proposed DPO23.
  • Sims Lane Residential Precinct - proposed DPO24.
  • Koo Wee Rup Established Residential Areas - proposed DDO8.
