Planning Scheme Amendments - C81 Land Subject to Inundation Overlay
Planning Scheme Amendment C81 proposes to update the inundation controls in the South Gippsland Planning Scheme. The Amendment has been prepared in collaboration with the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority. The main element of Amendment C81 consists of changes to the Land Subject to Inundation Overlay (LSIO).
The Minister for Planning, Hon. Richard Wynne MP has approved Amendment C81. The Amendment is now in the South Gippsland Planning Scheme and the new flooding maps and controls now apply. Please check the information below or phone Council on 5662 9200 for more information.
The Amendment has no impact or effect on legally existing dwellings or other buildings and works proposed to be included in the LSIO. For example, you will not be required to raise the height of your dwelling or improve the drainage on your land.
The LSIO mapping is based on publically available information which insurance companies are already aware of. Amendment C81 does not provide additional or new risk information that they are not already aware of.
There are 39 separately mapped areas that combine to form the South Gippsland Planning Scheme maps. Some of the maps display large rural areas and some maps display smaller areas like townships. To assist you to find the map area of interest to you please start by viewing this key map. The map numbers displayed in the key map correspond to the numbers in the below list of maps. Also provided below are links to aerial photos displaying the proposed application of the LSIO. You can zoom into these maps and see the exact boundary of the proposed LSIO.
