Planning Scheme Amendment C228morn proposes to introduce and apply a new Schedule 23 to the Development Plan Overlay to the land at 146-152 Bungower Road, Mornington and remove the existing Schedule 6 to the Design and Development Overlay to facilitate the development of the land.

The amendment will facilitate the development of the land for commercial land uses, including health and community support services in accordance with Schedule 23 to the Development Plan Overlay.

The amendment applies to:

146-152 Bungower Road, Mornington

The amendment is required to facilitate the development of the land for commercial land uses, including health and community support services. The application of DPO23 allows for a master planned and efficient approach to the development of the site and requires that before a permit is granted, a development plan must be prepared addressing the requirements identified in the schedule.

The amendment also proposes the removal of the existing Schedule 6 to the Design and Development Overlay and integrating the relevant neighbourhood character provisions into the new Schedule 23 to the Development Plan Overlay. This will ensure the development responds appropriately to the low density residential surrounds which are identified in Schedule 6 to the Design and Development Overlay.
