Council has prepared Amendment C365 to the Planning Scheme and it is currently on exhibition. Submissions can be made online using the form below.
The amendment proposes to implement the findings of the Newtown West Heritage Area Review 2016 through the application of the heritage overlay to three precincts and five individual sites in the Newtown West area of Geelong as shown on the map above.
Existing individual heritage overlays will be deleted from three properties.
An incorporated plan for the Great Western Hotel will also be included in the Scheme to exempt requirements for permits under the Heritage overlay unless the 2 storey heritage building is affected, and to provide greater flexibility for the balance of the site.
