What is the amendment process?
When an amendment is proposed there is a public exhibition held for usually a month where affected people are notified and the community can submit any comments.
The merits of the amendment are then assessed by Council. On an occasion where concerns regarding a proposed amendment cannot be resolved, submissions may be referred to an independent Planning Panel for consideration.
Once the panel's recommendation is received, Council can then decide whether to abandon or adopt all or parts of the amendment. An amendment cannot make changes to the planning scheme until it is approved and gazetted by the Minister for Planning.
The current Bayside Planning Scheme Amendments are listed below. You can also view further information at the Victoria State Government website.
