Amendment C97

Sale Sewerage Pump Station

Gippsland Water has reviewed existing wastewater service provision and identified the need for new infrastructure to respond to growth scenarios. The appropriate servicing solution to address capacity issues and respond to growth projections is the introduction of a new sewerage pump station (SPS) in Sale.


Amendment C97 is required to provide a land use zone to facilitate the development of a new SPS, which will provide essential infrastructure to service sustainable residential and industrial growth in and around Sale for the next 50 years.



C97 - Subject Land


Rezoning the land to Public Use Zone 1 will recognise the land for use as a public utility facility and will provide for associated uses that are consistent with the intent of the public land purpose. This will ensure statutory approval processes are streamlined to facilitate the efficient and effective planning and implementation of a piece of key infrastructure for the town.

Amendment C97 also includes the deletion of the Design and Development Overlay – Schedule 2 (DDO2) – Business/Industry Display Area and corrects a number of mapping anomalies within the Wellington Planning Scheme.


Current Status

Following a four week period of public exhibition between 10 August and 11 September 2017, during which no objections were received, Council resolved to adopt Amendment C97 at its meeting of 17 October 2017. 

Amendment C97 was formally approved and gazetted by the Minister for Planning on 21 December 2017.
