Notice of the preparation of an Amendment

Amendment C116well

The Wellington Shire Council has prepared Amendment C116well to the Wellington Planning Scheme. The Amendment has been requested by the NBA Group Pty Ltd.

The land affected by the Amendment is:

  • Lots 1 & 2 on TP861526 (Volume 09658 Folio 844) Longford-Loch Sport Road, Longford;
  • Crown Allotment 32A Parish of Glencoe (Volume 03681 Folio 022) “Summerhill” 216 Longford-Loch Sport Road, Longford;
  • Crown Allotments 34A, 37 & 37A Parish of Glencoe (Volume 10327 Folio 419, Volume 10327 Folio 420, Volume 10327 Folio 421) Part “Weemala” 286 Longford-Loch Sport Road, Longford.

The Amendment proposes to rezone the land from the Farming Zone (FZ) to the Rural Living Zone Schedule 5 (RLZ5) and apply the Development Plan Overlay Schedule 14 (DPO14) to facilitate future rural residential subdivision of the land in accordance with the ‘Sale, Wurruk & Longford Structure Plan (2010)’ and the ‘Longford Development Plan (November 2015).’

The amendment also applies the Environmental Audit Overlay (EAO) to a confined area of the land, which will result in the need for an environmental audit of the area to be completed prior to any future rural residential development commencing. The amendment also updates the Schedule to Clause 72.03 of the Wellington Planning Scheme to reflect the new EAO map sheet.
