Planning scheme amendments - what are they?

The Greater Bendigo Planning Scheme controls how land can be used and developed within our municipality. It is a living document that grows and changes with the changing needs of the community.  

Council may amend the planning scheme to achieve a desirable planning outcome or to support a new policy direction. Changes to the scheme are known as amendments and the process for an amendment is set out in the Planning and Environment Act 1987 (the Act). An amendment may involve a change to a planning scheme map (such as a rezoning), a change to the written part of the scheme, or both.

For more information about amendments and the steps involved visit: Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning.

Privately requested amendments include a fee to the applicant and, if supported by Council, usually take 1-2 years to be finalised.

Please refer to our Privately Sponsored Planning Scheme Amendment Policy for details on fees, charges and timelines.
