Potentially contaminated land (C155)

Amendment C155 proposes to apply an Environmental Audit Overlay to 116 properties in Bayside where we have identified there may be the potential for contamination, such as former petrol stations or industrial sites. This will ensure that if these sites are to be transitioned to sensitive uses, an environmental audit is undertaken at the planning permit stage.

 

Planning Scheme Amendment C155

The State Environment Protection Policy (Prevention and Management of Contamination of Land) June 2002 requires us to seek an environmental audit of land where potentially contaminated land may be used for a sensitive use, such as residential or child care.

Amendment C155 proposes to apply the Environmental Audit Overlay to land which may be subject to potential contamination due its current or a historical land use. The amendment applies to land we have identified as having a high or medium potential risk of contamination.
