Planning Scheme Amendments

A planning scheme sets out policies and requirements for the use, development and protection of land.

The process for an amendment to the Planning Scheme is set out in the Planning and Environment Act 1987.  An amendment can involve a change to the written part of the scheme (ordinance) and/or to a map.

An amendment can be initiated by a planning authority (including Council) or by any person.   A proponent must be able to demonstrate adequate justification as to why an amendment should be prepared.  Before an amendment can be prepared, it must be authorised by the Minister for Planning.

For more information about the Planning Scheme Amendment process visit the Department of Transport, Planning & Local Infrastructure.
