A Planning Scheme is a dynamic document that provides a tool to manage growth and change in the local government area.
To ensure the Planning Scheme remains a leading and modern planning tool, amendments are used to make changes where required in response to legislation updates or introduction of new policies.
Minor amendment to flood hazard area overlay
On Wednesday 28 August 2019, Council resolved to adopt a minor amendment to the Fraser Coast Planning Scheme 2014 Flood Hazard Overlay Map OM-008.1 and OM-008.2. The amendment was required to align the Planning Scheme Flood Hazard Overlay maps with mapping outputs from flood studies recently undertaken by Council. The flood studies were undertaken to update existing flood risk information and/or to quantify flood risk in locations where Council did not possess adopted detailed flood information. Further details on the flood hazard area amendments are available on Council's engagement hub.
The changes to the planning scheme take effect from Monday 9 September 2019.
