What is Amendment C114?

Planning Scheme Amendment C114 applies to land within the North Sale Growth Area, which is bound by the existing Cobains Estate, Cobains Road, Sale to the west and Chinamans Lane to the east (see Figure 1 below). The Amendment rezoned the land from the Farming Zone (FZ) to the General Residential Zone - Schedule 1 (GRZ1). It also applied a new Development Plan Overlay - Schedule 13 (DPO13) to the land to support further residential subdivision in accordance with the ‘North Sale Development Plan (2018)’ (NSDP).

Key changes

The Amendment has made the following key changes to the Wellington Planning Scheme:

  • Amends Clause 21.05-12 at ‘Application of policy, zones and overlays’, by deleting dot point five that references the possible rezoning to Commercial 2 Zone the subject land as ‘Urban Residential Expansion’;
  • Rezones the land from the FZ to the GRZ1;
  • Inserts a new Schedule (Schedule 13) to the Development Plan Overlay at Clause 43.04 to ensure new residential development occurs in accordance with the NSDP; and
  • Amends Planning Scheme Zone Maps to reflect the above changes.

The Amendment supports the coordinated delivery of much needed additional residential land in a long-established growth area of Sale and will facilitate the equitable and transparent delivery of key infrastructure items critical to supporting new development.
