Cardinia Planning Scheme and planning scheme amendments
About planning scheme amendments
The Planning and Environment Act 1987 provides for an instrument of planning control, the planning scheme. A planning scheme is a statutory document which sets out objectives, policies and provisions for the use, development and protection of land.
Planning schemes consist of:
- maps which show how the land is zoned and overlays affecting the land
- an ordinance which sets out the written requirements of a scheme and the types of use or development which needs a permit
- incorporated documents – studies, strategies, guidelines and policies that are incorporated and also form part of the planning scheme.
