In November 2013 Interim Planning Controls were approved. The next step in the process was for the community to provide feedback on the new controls prior to permanent controls being approved.
Council received a number of submissions from the community, in particular developers, who requested changes to heights, setbacks, vegetation and other controls.
A panel has been appointed to review these submissions. The panel has the ability to modify the guidelines that were approved with the Interim Planning Controls. These sessions are open to the public. The following letter from Council provides details of the sessions:
Dear CCC Members
Planning Scheme Amendments C93 and C94 were exhibited from Thursday 5 December 2013 to Thursday 13 February 2014. A number of submissions have been received in relation to these amendments. At its meeting on 3 March 2014 Council decided to work with submitters to try and resolve submissions and to refer any unresolved submissions to a Planning Panel. A number of submissions remain unresolved so Council has requested that a Planning Panel be appointed.
