Planning Scheme Amendment GC13

Improving Community Resilience to Bushfires

The Victorian Government is acting to make new homes, our communities and the environment safer from bushfires. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning has reviewed and updated bushfire hazard mapping in the Greater Shepparton Planning Scheme through Amendment GC13. This mapping updates the Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO).

The update was a key recommendation of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, and ensures consistent bushfire mapping and planning policies apply across the state.

As part of this state-wide review, bushfire planning controls have been applied to many properties in the municipality. While existing homes and approved developments are not required to make changes, in future, a planning permit may be required to subdivide land, build a new house or significantly extend an existing house under the BMO planning controls. This planning permit will ensure that bushfire hazards such as vegetation, slope and site access are assessed, and that safety measures are in place to manage bushfire risk.

Spiire Australia Pty Ltd and Council officers are conducting information sessions to explain how the application of the BMO will affect properties in the municipality on the following dates: 

  • 10:30am to 12:30pm on Tuesday 24 October 2017 in Function Room 2 of the Eastbank Centre at 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton; and
  • 5:30pm to 7:30pm on Thursday 26 October 2017 in the Council Boardroom at Council offices at 90 Welsford Street, Shepparton.

If you have any questions regarding these information sessions, please contact the Building and Planning Department of Greater Shepparton City Council on (03) 5832 9730.
