Amendment C165 applies to 5 & 7 Well Street, Brighton. 5 Well Street is currently used as a car park, and 7 Well Street is vacant land.
Both land parcels are owned by Council and are currently within the General Residential Zone Schedule 2. The land parcels are also identified within the Brighton-Church Street Major Activity Centre.
The Amendment proposed to rezone the aforementioned land to a Public Use Zone to facilitate the use and development of the land for local government purposes.
The Amendment was adopted by Council at its Ordinary Meeting on 18 February 2020 and was then submitted to the Minister for Planning in request for his approval.
On 23 July 2020, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) responded to Council's request and advised that a deicsion has been made to refuse the Amendment.
DELWP considered that the Amendment would facilitate a land use outcome that is not supported by the Bayside Planning Scheme and inconsistent with the Bayside Integrated Transport Strategy 2018-2028.
We will consider the implications of the Ministers decision and consider what it means for Council's decision to create car parking at the site.
