About Amendment C241

Amendment C241 facilitates the acquisition of parcels of land for the future development of signalised intersections in Officer and Beaconsfield. The Officer Precinct Structure Plan identifies the sites that are required.

In accordance with the Land Acquisition and Compensation Act 1986, prior to the commencement of the acquisition process the land must be reserved which is generally through the application of the Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO).

Council resolved to seek authorisation to prepare Amendment C241 at the Council meeting on 9 December 2019.

Amendment C241 was on exhibition from Thursday 20 February 2020 to Friday 20 March 2020.
