Amendment C249

Planning Scheme Amendment C249 applies to various sites throughout the Shire. Amendment C249 proposes to correct a number of minor zoning and overlay anomalies in the Cardinia Planning Scheme. The proposed corrections provide clarity, ensure that appropriate land uses and development occurs across the Shire, ensure important sites are recognised and protected and planning permit applications are being assessed against the appropriate planning provisions.

The Amendment proposes to achieve the following:

  • Rezoning properties to a zone that more appropriately reflects the current and future land use of that property.
  • Removes a heritage overlay on a property that no longer contains any significant heritage elements.
  • Amends the mapping of several Heritage Overlay references to more accurately reflect the location of significant properties.
  • Amending the incorporated document "Cardinia Local Heritage Study Review, Volume 3: Heritage Places and Precinct citations (February 2020)" to ensure the map, property addresses, property information and heritage grading of properties within Bunyip, Garfield and Koo Wee Rup commercial precincts are correct.

For a full list of properties affected and changes made please refer to the explanatory report.
