Planning Scheme Amendment C117

Council is committed to listening to our community and valuing our public open space.

Council has resolved to rezone 15 parcels of Council owned land to the Public Park and Recreation Zone (PPRZ).

The reason and purpose of the rezoning is to formally confirm the status of the land parcels as public open space, providing clarity about the future intent for the land.

To rezone land, Council is required to amend the Nillumbik Planning Scheme. The amendment process allows the community to make submissions to the proposal.

Further information on both the proposal and the amendment process can be found below:
