Shape shire’s future

SOUTH Gippsland Shire Council will begin consultation for Amendment C90 to the South Gippsland Planning Scheme this week.

The amendment will improve the Planning Scheme’s guidance of development and land use over the next 20 to 30 years. The function, size and services of the South Gippsland’s settlements plus the capacity of the environment to sustain development have been taken into account.

The changes are based on the recommendations of the South Gippsland Housing and Settlement Strategy 2013.

People will have the opportunity to learn more about the amendment at the public sessions being held this November and December.

Council’s strategic planning officer Fiona Mottram said it was vital people considered the scheme and had their say. “Amendment C90 includes Settlement Framework Plans and Restructure Plans which determine where settlement growth would be encouraged or limited,” she said.

“Community feedback is vital for this process so that we understand the implications these changes to the planning scheme may have for some owners.

“We encourage community members to get in contact with us if they require any more information and highly suggest they attend a one on one meeting at the upcoming public sessions.”

To book an appointment at one of the public sessions please contact the strategic planning team on 5662 9200 or email C90@southgippsland.vic.gov.au with your preferred session, time and contact details.
