Planning Scheme Amendments - C108 - Agricultural Services - Leongatha South


Proposal (Note - Amendment has now been approved)      

Amendment C108 proposes to rezone the land at 590 South Gippsland Highway, Leongatha South, 3953 being Lot 2, PS346292D and 2 Hogans Road, Leongatha South, 3953 being Lot 1, PS346292 from Farming Zone to a Special Use Zone.

The joint Amendment and planning permit proposes to rezone approximately 14.47ha of Farming Zone to Special Use Zone ‘Agricultural Services’ (SUZ) and a two lot subdivision. The subdivision is to ensure that the land is not split between two zones. Lot 1 will allow for future subdivision and development of the SUZ land while Lot 2 is the balance Farming Zone lot. The proposal does not approve any use or development for the land and future development will be subject to a separate planning permit process.

The Special Use Zone will support certain uses for the site, specifically supporting the area for agricultural service type uses or complementary type uses. 2 Hogans Road (currently Cervus) is proposed to be included due to the site abutting 590 South Gippsland Highway and already has an established complementary use (farm equipment sales).

Current stage

The Amendment was approved by the Minister for Planning on Thursday 3 August 2017. The Minister also directed that the planning permit for the two lot subdivision of the land be issued by Council.
