Wyndham Planning Scheme Amendment C243 Map

The PAO will facilitate the development of a service road, which has been identified in a Traffic Impact Assessment as the appropriate road management strategy to safely manage traffic entering onto these arterial roads.

Service Road concept plans have been prepared to define the extent of the service road and land required under the PAO.

Three information drop in sessions were held in May and June to enable Council officers to provide information on the planning, acquisition and compensation and engineering issues, and for landowners to ask questions and raise issues.

Responses to issues raised in written submissions made during the public exhibition process of the planning scheme amendment to introduce the PAO into the planning scheme will be prepared as part of council’s consideration of submissions.

  • Reduced lot sizes in the Low Density Residential Zone (LDRZ) and further subdivision
