Planning Scheme Amendments

A Planning Scheme Amendment is a formal process that changes the planning scheme to achieve a good planning outcome, or to support a new policy direction.


Amendments to the scheme affect the wider community because they change the way land can be used or developed. They also change the way planning decisions are made in the future.

 

An example of a Planning Scheme Amendment:

If Council wanted to encourage more rural living developments on land that is zoned for farming, it would amend the scheme and rezone land from farming to rural living.


Current Amendments on Exhibition:


C133 – Paynesville Town Centre Structure Plan


Planning for the future of Paynesville has been ongoing for many years reflecting the need for review to keep plans current.  The first Paynesville Central Area Development Plan was finished in 1984 and then updated in 1987. A State wide coastal perspective resulted in the introduction of the Paynesville Urban Design Framework (UDF) with design guidelines in 2007.  


While the residential components of the UDF were well developed and introduced through overlays into the East Gippsland Planning Scheme in 2010 further more detailed work needed to be completed for the Paynesville Town Centre.  This additional work was completed in 2009 with the finalisation of the Paynesville Town Centre Structure Plan and the Paynesville Town Centre Design Guidelines.  Community participation and input into this planning project work has been extensive and will underpin the success of the Plan and Guidelines.


This amendment proposes to change the East Gippsland Planning Scheme by revising the Municipal Strategic Statement to introduce the Paynesville Town Centre Structure Plan into the Local Planning Policy Framework and introduces a new local policy in the Framework called Paynesville Town Centre.


The area affected by the amendment is the Paynesville Town Centre which is generally bounded by Langford Parade, Victoria Street, the Newlands Backwater foreshore and McMillan Strait foreshore shown in the map below.

In summary, the amendment will

  • update clause 21.12, Strategies for sub-regions, towns and localities, to make reference to elements of the Paynesville Town Centre Structure Plan (September 2009) and Paynesville Town Centre Design Guidelines (September 2009)
  • introduces a new local policy at clause 22.03 called the Paynesville Town Centre

C135 - East Bairnsdale/Lucknow Precinct Structure Plan


East Bairnsdale – Lucknow is a residential community with capacity for future growth, a significant employment and industry area and a complementary activity area to Bairnsdale’s central business district.  The East Bairnsdale – Lucknow Precinct is significant as it is a gateway to Bairnsdale being the entrance to the coastal environs and communities of the Gippsland Lakes, Ninety Mile Beach and beyond.


Council started the structure planning process for this area in 2012.  A draft plan was released in 2013 and was the basis of a community conversation which provided valuable local knowledge and information as well as an understanding of community aspirations.  From this conversation, as part of the community consultation for the project, a draft Precinct Structure Plan was developed in collaboration with State government agencies, businesses, landowners and residents.  Community comment was sought on this draft plan and community input shaped the final form of the East Bairnsdale – Lucknow Precinct Structure Plan which was adopted by Council on 1 April 2014.


The amendment proposes to change the East Gippsland Planning Scheme by revising the Municipal Strategic Statement to introduce the objectives of the East Bairnsdale – Lucknow Precinct Structure Plan into the Local Planning Policy Framework and introduces a new local policy in the Framework called East Bairnsdale – Lucknow Precinct.


The Precinct is the area bounded by the Great Alpine Road, Lanes Road, East Gippsland Rail Trail and Phillips Lane as shown in the map below.

The amendment rezones two parcels of land within the Precinct so that the zoning reflects the current land use where it is consistent with the Precinct Structure Plan.  They are:

  • part of the recreation reserve at 64 Great Alpine Road, East Bairnsdale, rezoning the land from General Residential Zone to Public Park and Recreation Zone;  and
  • land at 16 Phillips Lane, East Bairnsdale from Farming Zone to Rural Living Zone.

The amendment also affects land outside the Precinct at 245 Princes Highway, East Bairnsdale.  It is proposed to rezone this land as part of this amendment as a correction to the East Gippsland Planning Scheme.  This land is being rezoned from Farming Zone to Public Park and Recreation Zone reflecting a transfer to public ownership of the land as part of the implementation of the Lucknow Drainage Improvement Project.


The amendment and supporting documentation is available for inspection, free of charge, during office hours at the following East Gippsland Shire Council offices:

  • 273 Main Street, Bairnsdale;
  • 18 Mechanics Street, Lakes Entrance;
  • 179 Day Avenue, Omeo;
  • 1 Ruskin Street, Orbost;
  • 55 The Esplanade, Paynesville;
  • 18 Dowling Street, Bendoc;
  • Buchan Neighbourhood House, 6 Centre Road, Buchan; and
  • Cann River Community Centre, Princes Highway, Cann River.

The amendment and supporting documents can also be viewed at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website.

GC49 – Bairnsdale Hospital Heliport Flight Path Protection

 

Emergency helicopters play a key role in providing medical and trauma services to patients who are critically ill or who may be involved in serious accidents. Safeguarding the flight paths to the existing and rooftop helipads will protect an integral part of the health system.

 

The flight path protection ensures the efficient transfer of critically ill patients to the hospital that can best deliver the care they need.

 

The Department of Health & Human Services (the department) is therefore seeking to make changes to a number of planning schemes, including East Gippsland Planning Scheme to apply Design and Development Overlays (Overlays) to protect Emergency Medical Services helicopter flight paths.
