Amendment C133 – Planning Scheme Errors and Anomalies

Consultation has concluded

This Amendment corrects numerous errors and anomalies within the planning scheme. It is part of Council’s ongoing ‘housekeeping’ work to ensure the planning scheme is up to date and correct. Specifically, the amendment proposes to:

  • Correct errors and anomalies within the planning scheme as identified through planning permit applications, enquiries and requests from the public, and ongoing review of the planning scheme;
  • Implement several policy neutral recommendations of the Darebin Planning Scheme Review Report 2010;
  • Implement several policy neutral recommendations of the Darebin Heritage Study 2007;
  • Progress the implementation of the resolution of the Council on 7 July 2014 (which is based on several recommendations of the Darebin Open Space Strategy 2007–2017);
  • Update the liquor licensing schedule to reflect changes to the Liquor Control Reform Act and to make clerical changes to the wording of the schedule.

While the changes proposed are minor in nature, the existing errors can create problems and unnecessary work for owners and Council. They can have the effect of prohibiting otherwise appropriate developments and uses and upholding planning controls that do not reflect the current ownership and land use patterns.
