Amendment C276

Chapel reVision Planning Control Improvements


Amendment C276 has been approved with changes by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) under powers of delegation from the Minister for Planning. The Amendment came into effect on Friday 20 September 2019.

Approved documents can be found in the documents section below.


Following Council’s adoption of Amendment C172, Council officers undertook a policy neutral review of the adopted version of Schedule 1 to the Activity Centre Zone at the request of the Minister for Planning. The aim of the review was to simplify the Schedule to reduce repetition, complexity and length. Whilst the majority of the changes were included in the approved Amendment C172, a number of changes identified as necessary were deemed to require additional consultation with landowners and other stakeholders who may be materially affected by the Amendment.

Council Officers have also been monitoring and undertaking an ongoing review of Schedule 1 to the Activity Centre Zone since its adoption in 2015 and final approval in 2017. Any revisions identified through this process have also been included in Amendment C276.

At its meeting on 9 April 2018, Council resolved to prepare the Amendment documentation and request authorisation from the Minister for Planning to exhibit it to the public.


The exhibition period was from 17 May to 18 June 2018.  Council received 27 submissions (one of which has been withdrawn).
