Planning Scheme Amendments
A planning scheme amendment is a formal process that changes the planning scheme to get a good planning outcome or to support a new policy direction.
An example of a Planning Scheme Amendment would be…
If council wanted to encourage more industrial development in a residential area, it would amend the scheme and rezone land from residential to industrial. 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.
