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.
Proposed minor amendment to flood hazard area overlay
On Wednesday 27 March 2019, Council resolved to make a minor amendment to the Fraser Coast Planning Scheme 2014 Flood Hazard Overlay Map OM-008.1 and OM-008.2. The amendment is 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.
Throughout May, individual letters and property specific reports will be sent to property owners affected by the changes to flood hazard area mapping
