The tree protection controls, first approved by the Minister through Amendment C191, applied a municipal-wide Significant Landscape Overlay (SLO9) to all residential land not currently included in the SLO, on an interim basis.
The Minister for Planning has extended the expiry date of the interim tree protection controls in Whitehorse through Amendment C223 to the Whitehorse Planning Scheme for 12 months until 30 June 2020.
The interim planning controls apply to all land included in the Neighbourhood Residential Zone, General Residential Zone, Residential Growth Zone and Low Density Residential Zone that is not already covered by the overlay. Landowners can identify the zoning and overlays that apply to their land at Whitehorse Maps.
The interim controls do not change the zoning of any land.
