Planning Scheme Amendments - Amendment C100 - General Amendment


Council has prepared Planning Scheme Amendment C100 (commonly known as a General Amendment).

The Amendment has been undertaken by Council to correct mapping anomalies in the South Gippsland Planning Scheme. Mapping anomalies (or errors) should be corrected as they can impose unnecessary planning permit requirements on landowners.
