Council has prepared Amendment C399ggee to the planning scheme and it is currently on public exhibition. Submissions can be made online using the form below.

The amendment up-dates the methodology used for the calculation of native vegetation offsets.

The amendment alters the following schedules in the planning scheme to refer to the revised Native Vegetation Precinct Plans:

  • Schedule 4 to Clause 37.07 Urban Growth Zone UGZ4,
  • Schedule 5 to Clause 37.07 Urban Growth Zone UGZ5,
  • Schedule to Clause 52.16 – Native Vegetation Precinct Plan, and
