About Amendment C226

Amendment C226 repairs inconsistent policy in the Urban Growth Zone Schedule 3 (UGZ3) and the applied Schedule of the Rural Conservation Zone (RCZ) in the Officer Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) that was adopted by Council in 2011. The amendment adds a Schedule to the RCZ removing the minimum subdivision requirements for the three sites identified, that would otherwise exist in the provision. This ensures there is a match between the policy intention of the PSP and the provisions in the UGZ3 and the applied RCZ.

The preparation of Amendment C226 was authorised by the Minister for Planning on 3 May 2017.

Amendment C226 was on exhibition from 22 June 2017 to 24 July 2017.
