About amendment C238

As a result of legislative changes with regards to infrastructure contributions, Council has had to consider its request (to the Minister for Planning) for authorisation to prepare and exhibit Amendment C238 on three separate occasions.

Council report and minutes Monday 19 February 2018

Council report and minutes Monday 15 October 2018

Council report and minutes Monday 19 August 2019

Council received authorisation from the Minister for Planning to prepare Amendment C238 on the 23 April 2020.

The land affected by Amendment C238 is referred to as the ‘Glismann Road Area’ and includes 21 rural living lifestyle lots in Beaconsfield:

  • 1 to 16 Glismann Road;
  • 111 to 123 Old Princes Highway; and,
  • 11 Mahon Avenue

The lot sizes in the Glismann Road Area are inconsistent with the surrounding residential area and State planning policy that is focused on reducing urban sprawl by promoting infill urban development and maximising the use of existing infrastructure, particularly in areas that are close to public transport.

This amendment proposes to rezone land in the Glismann Road Area to a residential zone to allow for residential subdivision using a development plan and development contributions plan.

Amendment C238 facilitates the following:

  • Rezone land from the Rural Living Zone (RLZ1) and General Residential Zone (GRZ1) to the Neighbourhood Residential Zone (NRZ2) to allow land to be subdivided for residential development.
  • Apply Development Plan Overlay (DPO19) to the Glismann Road Area to ensure that properties are developed in a cohesive manner and implements best practice planning initiatives in relation to subdivision layout, urban design, environmental and landscape considerations.
  • Apply Development Contributions Plan Overlay (DCPO5) and incorporate the Glismann Road Development Contributions Plan (GRDCP) into the Cardinia Planning Scheme to share the cost of key infrastructure items triggered by the new development in a fair and reasonable manner.
  • Include the local open space provision in the GRDCP and amend Clause 53.01 of the Cardinia Planning Scheme to facilitate the provision of local open space.

Amendment documents and more information can be found at Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) website.

Background Reports

  • guide the development within the Glismann Road Area
  • justify the need and standard of infrastructure and services required within the Glismann Road Area
  • provide costs for projects in the Glismann Road DCP.
FAQs

Three FAQs are provided to assist with addressing common questions that may arise as part of Amendment C238.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the amendment documents may only be viewed online.

The Victorian Government has introduced the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Act 2020 which includes temporary changes to the Planning and Environment Act 1987 (Planning Act). The changes ensure that the planning process in Victoria can continue, despite the closure of many state and local government offices and public health measures that include physical distancing requirements. The changes mean that planning documents previously required to be physically available to view at state and local government offices are now only required to be available for online inspection. This includes copies of planning scheme amendment documentation.

Please contact Lorna Lablache from Council’s Planning Strategy unit on 1300 787 624 if you would like a hard copy of the documentation.
