A planning scheme sets out the way land can be used and developed through policies and objectives. It includes both written text and maps that show the zones and overlays that affect land. It gives information about policies and the circumstances when a planning permit is needed to make changes to the use or condition of land or to develop land.
Amendments to the Banyule Planning Scheme
Sometimes a planning scheme may need to be changed to reflect new circumstances or achieve new objectives. Changes to the scheme are known as amendments and the process for an amendment is set out in the Planning and Environment Act 1987.
An amendment may involve a change to a planning scheme map (such as a rezoning), a change to the written part of the scheme, or both. More information about changing the planning scheme through an amendment can be found at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) website.
Changes to the planning scheme need suitable strategic justification and site specific rezonings are generally not supported except in rare circumstances where there is sufficient justification.
Planning scheme amendments need the support of the state planning authority, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and final approval by the Minister for Planning.
