Amendment C115

The proposal has been made under the provisions of Section 96A of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, which allows a concurrent planning permit application to be considered alongside the rezoning request. As such, consent to subdivide the land into 82 residential allotments averaging approximately 700m2 is also sought (see Figure 2).

The land in question is vacant agricultural land bordering Glenhaven Estate to the east, the Main Sale Irrigation Channel to the North, the Gippsland Railway Line to the west and Rural Living lifestyle allotments to the south.

The strategic framework outlining developer requirements for rezoning proposals in the North Sale Growth Area is the North Sale Development Plan (NSDP). This document can be viewed using the following link:
