ready to exhibit
By Kate Taylor

A piece of tidy-up work, the Planning Scheme Amendment

C86 is another step closer to adoption.
Councilors voted at the March council meeting to seek
authorisation from the Planning Minister to prepare and
exhibit the amendment – and affected landowners will be
notified thanks to an additional condition proposed by West
Ward Councillor Tom Sullivan.
The amendment is set to correct a number of errors and
anomalies that have been identified in the planning scheme.
“Council officers occasionally receive queries from public
authorities and private parties regarding errors and
anomalies in the Moorabool Planning Scheme,” read a report
tabled at the meeting.
“Most of these are for fairly minor matters. In such cases,
