At its Ordinary Meeting on 10 October 2007, council adopted proposed amendments to the following planning scheme policies in accordance with the requirements of Schedule 3 of the Integrated Planning Act (IPA).

The amendments to the policies involve primarily a number of administrative matters and changes to clarify operational issues, in particular introducing equivalent demand rates for defined land uses, nominating those uses exempt from paying infrastructure contributions, clarifying that the minimum existing use demand entitlement is that allowed for a single detached house and extending the concessional provisions for existing uses to apply to a change of use.

Commencement of the amendments

The amendments to the planning scheme policies will have effect on and from 1 November 2007.

Note: No amendments were made to the plan drawings which are included within the DC policies. The plan drawings which accompany the existing DC policies will also accompany the amended DC policies from 1 November 2007.
