Proposed Amendments to Town Planning Scheme No. 2

The following amendments to Town Planning Scheme No. 2 are currently being advertised for public comment: 

Complex Scheme Amendment No. 206 – Waratah Avenue

Scheme Amendment No. 206 is currently being advertised. This complex scheme amendment proposes to rezone Lots 225 to 236 and 340 to 348 Waratah Avenue, Dalkeith from ‘Residential R10’ to ‘Residential R20’.

In March 2015, the City received the proposed Scheme Amendment. During the time in which staff were reviewing the proposal, Council at 26 May 2015 Meeting resolved not to initiate further scheme amendments to Town Planning Scheme No. 2 (TPS2). The reason for this was to divert all resources to the completion of the draft Local Planning Strategy and draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3.

Following this resolution, the proposal was reported to Council where at the 23 June 2015 Meeting Council resolved not to adopt Scheme Amendment No. 206.

The applicant lodged an appeal to the Minister for Planning under section 76 of the Planning and Development Act 2005 (Act). The Minister considered both the applicant and the City’s submissions, and has given an Order directing the City to adopt the proposal and “allow for the amendment to be advertised for public comment and further detailed assessment to be undertaken through the scheme amendment process”.

Following this Order, Council at the 28 February 2017 Meeting resolved to adopt and proceed to advertise the proposed amendment.
