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.

You can inspect all documents relating to the amendment free of charge from Thursday 4 February 2021 via the ‘Planning documents on exhibition’ webpage on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s website.

Next Steps

Submissions are public documents and Council must consider all submissions received during the exhibition period.

If concerns raised in submissions cannot be resolved by making changes to the amendment, Council must decide whether to abandon the amendment or refer submissions to an independent planning panel. Council may also decide to split the amendment.

At the panel hearing, submitters can present their submissions or engage a consultant to present an argument on their behalf. You can read more about planning panels and the panel hearing process via the Guide to planning panels webpage on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s website.

Council will consider the panel’s report and recommendations before deciding whether to adopt or abandon the amendment. If Council adopts the amendment with or without changes, the amendment is then submitted to the Minister for Planning for consideration and decision. If Council abandons the amendment, the Minister will be informed of Council’s decision.
