Land affected by the Amendment

Amendment C193 
Amendment C193 to the Whitehorse Planning Scheme was approved on 14 May 2018 and came into effect on 7 June 2018.

The Amendment:

  • rezones the land currently designated as Commonwealth Land to General Residential Zone (Schedule 5) (GRZ5)
  • rezones a portion of the land currently designated as Urban Floodway Zone (UFZ) to GRZ5
  • applies the Design and Development Overlay (Schedule 10) (DDO10) to all of the land
  • applies the Environmental Audit Overlay (EAO) to all of the land

The Amendment is required as the existing zoning doesn’t reflect its current residential use, its future development potential, and the land is no longer owned by the Commonwealth. The amendment will ensure any future development is assessed against the most appropriate provisions in the Whitehorse Planning Scheme.  The DDO10 will ensure future development respects the existing character of the area and the EAO will ensure potentially contaminated land is identified prior to development occurring.
