Regular Health Check for Shire's Planning Scheme

Southern Grampians Shire Council is undertaking a review its Planning Scheme to improve how it operates in achieving better land use and development outcomes. Every four years municipalities in Victoria are required to report the findings of the review to the Minister for Planning.

The Planning Scheme is important because it is a legal document that identifies land use objectives, policies and controls and regulates how land can be used and developed in the Shire.

So far, the review has included an internal audit of the planning scheme and a draft report has been prepared that Council has recommended for consultation.

Council now wants to hear from the community on how well the planning scheme is performing and is also seeking feedback on the findings contained in the draft report.

The report is available to view at:

  • Brown Street Business Centre, 111 Brown Street Hamilton
  • Market Place Business Centre, 1 Market Place Hamilton

Or on Council’s website

Submissions must be received by Monday 1 April 2019 to be considered for incorporation into the final report. Once finalised, the Planning Scheme Review Report will then be considered by Council for adoption and recommendation for submission to the Minister for Planning.
