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 we 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.
