Amendment C102 – General Amendment
What does Amendment C102 do?
Hobsons Bay City Council has prepared Amendment C102 to the Hobsons Bay Planning Scheme, which seeks to make the following changes:
- correct four zoning anomalies so that the existing use of the sites is consistent with their underlying zone
- correct the scheme by removing all reference to the Residential 1 Zone (R1Z), Residential 2 Zone (R2Z) and Business 3 Zone (B3Z) and updating text with the appropriate reformed residential and commercial zones introduced by the Minster for Planning as part of Amendments V8 and VC100
- change the wording regarding major promotion signs contained in the Outdoor Advertising Signage Policy at Clause 22.11 to reflect correct policy intent
- remove graphics from the Outdoor Advertising Signage Policy at Clause 22.11 to eliminate ambiguity in the interpretation of policy.
Why is it important?
The amendment proposes minor changes to the Hobsons Bay Planning Scheme to enhance its effectiveness, remove ambiguity and improve its general administration.
What happens next?
Council exhibited Amendment C102 between 11 December 2014 and 5 February 2015. In that time one submission was received.
As Council was unable to resolve the issues in the submission, it was decided to split Amendment C102 into two parts. Part One: General Amendment (to be adopted) and Part Two: No. 1 The Strand Williamstown Rezoning (to be abandoned).
At the Ordinary Council Meeting on 24 March 2015 Council motioned to adopt Part One: General Amendment and abandon Part Two: No. 1 The Strand Williamstown Rezoning, to send to the Minister for Planning for Approval. See Council Minutes.
Council's exhibited documentation can still be viewed via Greenlight planning Management system. Alternatively if you would like to discuss the amendment, please contact Strategic Planning on 9932 1000.
