What is the Bayside planning scheme?

The Bayside Planning Scheme ensures there is consistency in the way land is used and developed. We manage growth, support business and promote sustainable development via the scheme.

What does the scheme contain?

The scheme contains the:

  • state planning policy framework (SPPF).
  • local planning policy framework (municipal strategic statement and local planning policies).
  • land use and development controls (zones and overlays).

Changes to the Bayside Planning Scheme

To ensure that the Bayside Planning Scheme remains current, and takes into consideration new objectives or changes within the Bayside community, amendments are prepared.

Generally, amendments are initiated by the Minister for Planning, or by Council as the planning authority. Anyone can initiate a planning scheme amendment, though it is advisable to seek advice from a planning consultant first.
