Specifically, the proposed Amendment implements the following changes:

  • Applies PAO31 to part of 7265 Midland Highway, Mooroopna and amends Planning Scheme Map Nos. 16PAO and 21PAO; and
  • Amends the Schedule to Clause 45.01 (Public Acquisition Overlay) to introduce PAO31, designate Council as the acquiring authority and specify acquisition is for infrastructure purposes.

As none of the submissions objected to or requested changes to the Amendment, Council is not required to refer submissions to an Independent Planning Panel for consideration. Council officers made one post-exhibition change to remove the land at 560 Archer Road, Kialla from the Amendment.

Council resolved to adopt Amendment C228gshe at the Ordinary Council Meeting held on 21 June 2022. The Amendment has been submitted to the Minister for Planning for approval in accordance with Section 31 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.
